This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar.Understand more

With very few exceptions, tools that claimed to create seamless user experiences across Windows, Linux and OSX did not deliver. We ended up with compromised experiences on one or more of the operating systems. Mobile adds complexity to this problem with different hardware form factors and conventions for user interactions. We have made several attempts to use cross platform mobile toolkits on our projects with varying degrees of success. We saw issues like having to create a project for each platform or invoking specific native UI widgets to get things working. For these reasons we have put cross platform mobile toolkits in hold. While this may change in the future, we remain skeptical especially given past experiences on hardware that was far more homogeneous.
Thoughtworks acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land where we work and live, and their continued connection to Country. We pay our respects to Elders past and present. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples were the world's first scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
As a company, we invite Thoughtworkers to be actively engaged in advancing reconciliation and strengthen their solidarity with the First Peoples of Australia. Since 2019, we have been working with Reconciliation Australia to formalize our commitment and take meaningful action to advance reconciliation. We invite you to review our Reconciliation Action Plan.
