These are notes and thoughts on the Palm WebOS talk by Josh Marinacci. Hosted by Mobile Portland (http://mobileportland.com/) and Portland Incubator Experiment (http://piepdx.com/).
Josh shared the mechanics behind the WebOS and Ares and why current web technologies we leveraged in 2008 to compete in the mobile OS market.. We even built a quick Destroy Earth app using Ares. Although the logic was not completely built out. Thankfully! He also discussed the merger with HP and the future. Much of the conversation was also spent on the App Catalog and how to develop and release apps. There are many great tools here for developers to market and deploy their apps.
As a fellow designer of all things pixel, I really appreciated hearing his story and look forward to working with him down the road. Now that he is part of the HP family, I guess he is a quick phone call away now.
