Why Enyo? HP's Kevin Schaaf explains why

It's one thing to convince a developer that they should make an app for a specific platform isn't usually a hard affair. There are obvious reasons to develop apps for iOS or Android, and the most obvious of those is the fact that there are lots and lots of potential users. But convincing a developer which framework they should use? That's a different matter. Realistically they could use the platform-native framework, but if you're wanting to target multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, webOS, and web browsers on all devices) by just developing one app, there are only a few options worth considering.

One of those is a favorite of the webOS crowd: Enyo. Now up to version 2.0 and evolving, expanding, and building out in open source, Enyo's JavaScript component scheme allows developers to create modular components to build rich cross platform applications that… you know what? HP's Kevin Schaaf recently got up on the stage at the dotJS JavaScript conference in France and explained all of this a lot better than we ever could. Watch the video after the break and be convinced.
