TJ VanToll is an MVB for Telerik.

NativeScript is a free and open source JavaScript framework for building native iOS, Android, and Windows Phone apps. But I know what you’re thinking: another way of building apps? What makes NativeScript special? Here are a a few cool things:

  • Direct access to native APIs—no plugins required. Want to create a file on Android? Run new java.io.File()—in JavaScript!
  • Completely native performance through the use of a JavaScript bridge natively available on all three mobile platforms.
  • Cross-platform libraries for common use cases. Need to call a JSON API? Runhttp.getJSON("https://api.mydomain.com/get").
  • Style native apps using CSS. Yep, that’s actually a thing.

TJ VanToll is a senior developer advocate for Telerik, a jQuery team member, and the author of jQuery UI in Action. He has over a decade of web development experience—specializing in performance and the mobile web. TJ speaks about his research and experiences at conferences around the world, and has written for publications such as Smashing Magazine, HTML5 Rocks, and MSDN Magazine. TJ is @tjvantoll on Twitter and tjvantoll on GitHub.
