What do I mean “Mobile apps are dead???” When I first started out as a developer in the client-server era, things moved slow. We dreamed of doing things faster. Then came the Internet and “internet speed.” That was crazy fast. Now in the device + cloud era, I think things are moving at ludicrous speed.

Technologies come and go. Look at Flash on the infographic below. Devices come and go, remember how big the Palm Pilot was? Just 4 years ago the Blackberry was the number one mobile OS and the iPad did not exist! Standards are ever-evolving (remember the Blink tag?) and can die when you least expect them. What about the death of MS-DOS and MySpace? We barely remember them as we will barely remember iOS and Facebook in 10 years.

The Telerik Platform is designed to be future-proof, encompassing the entirety of native, web and hybrid universes and puts app requirements ahead of the development approach. It enables developers to create awesome experiences perfectly optimized for every app and every screen, today or in the future.

With the Telerik Platform, developers can focus on what an application should do first and then choose the approach that best balances cost, development time, reach and access to device capabilities. I’m happy to announce our new Telerik Developer Platform, which breaks down the silos of mobile apps. Mobile development will never be the same, check it out today at www.telerik.com it’s been 10 years in the making. ☺
