You can’t really go wrong with native, mobile or desktop concerning performance. But it too (yes Everything) will require updates and changes as things progress endlessly.
@kirupa Depending on the project, do you feel open standards based development matches performance in most cases for most apps vs native?
What about Xamarin ?
Concerning #2, there are other alternatives also for cross development and deployment. I think some might compile down to native or using native wrappers and such. Been a while since I have looked.
In this regard I was curious about Corona SDK as I had not looked at it in years and just found out that one of its inital founders Carlos Icaza passed away, formerly of Flash Lite, etc., at Adobe. Wow I had no idea. I remember after Jobs announcement on Flash, Carlos had some good insight about the internals and failures of Adobe and Flash. He was also a proponent for Swift down the road.
Care to share your thoughts further on this ?
