    I like Electron. I use Electron apps a lot and they work great for me. But I don't understand how he can praise PhoneGap. Every PhoneGap app I used was a complete mess, it is so much slower than native app, most of the time it doesn't even look and feel like native and ih has so many bugs and problems. If you want to build mobile apps I would advise to learn native development – yes it's harder but it's really worth it. If you don't want to learn native, at least use React Native or Flutter. They come close to the speed of native apps and they look & feel like one. Anything but PhoneGap

    Until there’s a way to protect the source for business app, I’ll pass on Electron.

    Does anyone know what website/app did he use for the slides ?

    Imagine telling an engineer in 2010 you’d be able to use web technologies to make mobile and desktop applications lol. They’d tell you where to go 😂

  5. I came here to learn about Electron for a project and was surprised to find I already wrote a book on the subject.
