LinkedIn used Node.js and HTML 5 to Build their App – And Why I like it So Much
LinkedIn recently launched a new version of their mobile app, and while it has a host of new features, perhaps the most exciting part is in the backend development.
As someone who is obviously addicted to apps, and using them on a daily basis, I was very excited to see LinkedIn’s new app. It features a sleek new look and feel, with a streamlined user experience. I came across these articles, which I thought provided some good information on mobile web apps vs. native apps; as well as using HTML 5 for the mobile web app and parts of the native app. It also includes some interesting information on using Node.js to improve speed.
I’ve downloaded the app for the iPhone and have been using it for about a week now and really like a lot of its features. Take a look at the app and find my profile on LinkedIn.
