Sorry for this late mail. I have mailed Alessandra and have been
waiting for his reply. I finally found this mailing list and thought i
could get some response here.
I am Bhargav, a Computer Science undergraduate student from
BITS-Pilani, India. I am an avid mobile app developer. I worked on
Phonegap apps during GSoC 2012 with Apache Software Foundation and
have developed many Windows Phone apps. I am also well versed with
native android app development. I have developed an Android app for
Exotel Techcom Pvt. Ltd. and it is being used by its clientele of over
2000 firms. My github account will provide much more details about
my developer expertise.
In my search to find an organization that has challenging problem
statements in Mobile application areas, I found openSUSE and was very
much interested in the this project which requires a mobile app that
syncs with ownCloud News. While I was trying to come up with a
feasible solution and plan to write a good proposal, I got a few
1. Could I get a look at ownCloud News API documentation?
2. Why was a Phonegap app considered? It is known that Native apps are
faster than Phonegap apps. But, phonegap provides us the ability of
releasing multiple platforms at once. I am well versed with both
native and Phonegap app development. Answering this question will help
me in coming to a consensus regarding app's design.
Also, building native app provides us with the ability of optimizing
battery life of device without polling server for news.
3. I got this idea of a new notification when a user favourite topic
gets a new article. How would that be?
I would be very much obliged if I am provided with answers to these
questions and whatever questions that may arise in future as they will
help me in writing a good proposal and in turn get chosen to openSUSE.
