By Adam Blum

Rhodes is an open source Ruby-based framework for building locally executing, device-optimized mobile applications that run on all major smartphone devices. These applications work with synchronized local data from enterprise application backends. Rhodes also allows you to take advantage of native device capabilities such as GPS, PIM contacts and camera. Yet you write the majority of your interface with high productivity in HTML. Rhodes is available for iPhone, Windows Mobile and Research in Motion (BlackBerry),Symbian and Android smartphones. In this session we’ll build a compelling mobile app from scratch in 15 minutes.

How come this talk already has three votes, while it hasn't been given yet? :P Looking forward to it though :)

Tomasz: I feel your pain ;) The five star votes prior to the talk were justified though: it was an excellent presentation of really relevant, interesting stuff.
