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!
It is the middle of the summer here at the NativeScript headquarters, but this isn’t an excuse for us not to deliver another quality and on-time release. Please welcome NativeScript 2.2; go get the code and read about all the new things we managed to release in the last month.not

When your application needs to perform heavy, non-UI work, you must take care not to block the UI thread and disrupt the otherwise smooth user experience. On Android, using background services is the right technique for the job.
NativeScript 2.1 is now live! Quick links - upgrade now or read the full release notes (total 118 GitHub issues were closed).
If I have to mention just two highlights in this release these will be 1) performance improvements in Android (both load time and runtime performance) and 2) much faster and stable LiveSync (HotReload) functionality as part of your development process.
