    • The Porting Problem
      • Porting is intended to make mobile applications available on a wide range of handsets, but:
      • It is slow and costly
      • Managing the matrix of builds is difficult
      • Updates and fixes are almost impossible
      • It is not effective as:
        • Each handset has many variants
        • New handsets are not supported

    • The Problem
      • Porting is bad engineering
        • Poor use of engineering time
        • Maintenance is difficult to impossible
        • Does not actually solve fragmentation
      • Porting is bad economics
        • Does not maximise user reach
        • Unsupported users do not return
        • Massive on-going cost

    • The Solution
      • Automate device detection
        • Recognise new devices automatically
        • Use available information and heuristics
        • Distribute the knowledge †
      • Automate application build
        • Build each application on demand
        • Select language, branding as needed
        • Embed user-specific information and security
