This is a very compelling story for everyone that want to faster create first class mobile applications. But sometimes your company already have an existing native applications that they want to extend and do not want to start from scratch. Having two native versions of a mobile app causes just too much problems. You need to have often different people (or even teams!) that implement and support the apps. Syncing the feature set, need to write the app twice and paying to the developers for this is an unneeded overhead these days.
NativeScript 2.4 comes with workers support allowing you to execute CPU intensive task on a background thread without blocking the UI thread.
Watch the opening keynote from NativeScript Developer Day 2016 held in Boston, MA.
At the end of September we hosted the first NativeScript Developer Day in Boston, MA. I’m sure everyone who attended left with a lot of positive vibes and enthusiasm about what can be done with NativeScript.
For those of you who could not manage to come, we hope to see you next time!
Progress participated in the HackMIT 2016 hackathon where teams competed to build the best apps. Many teams used NativeScript for the first time during the competition.
With the recent Angular 2 public release the write once, run everywhere is no longer a myth or something that we should try to avoid due to all the complications that were involved previously.
Now we have a framework that does this for us. When you combine Angular 2 with NativeScript you have a complete story that allows you to share code that runs NATIVELY on the target platforms - web and mobile. Support for desktop is planned for NativeScript as well.
The NativeScript team will host a hackathon at the Angular Connect conference on Sept 27th from 6:00 - 10:30 pm.

We built a Visual Studio Code extension for NativeScript. Read the lessons we learned along the way.
I’m extremely excited to announce an initiative that we were working for several releases now - NativeScript Code Samples!
To make you more productive and to get onboard faster we are releasing 60+ code samples, entirely according to the native UX guidelines, documented, tested and most important entirely open source and contribution friendly!
