Home Forums Other Creating Apps Re: Creating Apps


@attilahhajzer Various platforms are coming out that support native application authored in traditional web technologies. For instance, Windows 8 introduced the ability to author Windows Store Apps in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It is literally just like building a website, only easier (since these apps target a single browser).

Firefox has their own OS as well, which you can author apps for in web-based languages. Chrome has extensions, which are practically applications. And the list keeps going on and on. If you want to get to the point where you can build apps for these environments, build a bunch of websites. You’ll use all the same skills.
