Chard gave an overview of mobile app development tool PhoneGap.

There are lots of gotchas when using it, so a lot of the discussion centered around this. One major consideration is: should you provide the same interface across all mobile platforms, when they all have unique UI features and guidelines?

JP built his own CSS preprocessor called RCSS (not to be confused with RECESS, though both are pronounced the same way).

It’s server-side, PHP-powered, and looks to be just as robust as the ones you’re already familiar with. Check out the syntax, features, and other documentation by clicking above.

MiniFFC took a break in February because of JFFC but it’s coming back this month, not to mention we’re holding Caritakathon much earlier this year. Org registrations are up and team signups will open soon.
