Last week, Christophe Coenraets presented at the HTML5 Developers Conference in downtown San Francisco, and his presentation consisted of a list of tips that many mobile devs may find useful: The "Top 10 Performance Techniques for PhoneGap and Hybrid Apps." The tips are in the context of PhoneGap, but the general concepts should be more widely applicable, and given the importance of performance in mobile applications (or perceived performance, at least), there is a lot to work with here.

Caching tips and ordering tricks - loading UI before data, for example - are the types of slides you'll find, and any mobile developer is sure to find something useful here. Check out the full set, or grab the code on GitHub and run the presentation as a PhoneGap application.

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
