iTalk - Modern Mobile Development

Thursday, January 27, 2011 | 6:00pm
C180, UBC Robson Square

Developing for modern mobile platforms such as the iPhone, Android, and Mobile Web has become a profitable industry for the specialists and early adopters that currently dominate the mobile development scene. However, outside of that core, there is often a lot of confusion and misconception about the tools, process, and best practices around mobile development. This talk aims to break down the barriers, explaining the methodologies, similarities, and unique challenges of mobile development compared to more established development platforms. We will do a brief survey of development across iPhone, Android, and Mobile Web coupled with the perspective of an entrepreneur staking a claim in that space. Prospective mobile developers, and people trying to understand how to manage and integrate mobile technology with their existing products and services should all find something of interest, and come away with a better understanding of the actual process involved in building mobile software.
