An Evening with MongoDB - Toronto 2012: Mobilize MongoDB with Titanium and OpenShift

Grant Shipley, Red Hat
Join us for a technical how-to session on how to develop iPhone and Android apps with MongoDB backends for the cloud. Let's skip having to learn three different languages and jumpstart the development process using what you already know. We'll utilize Appcelerator's Titanium IDE to create a native mobile application targeting multiple mobile platforms. Next, we'll deploy our app to the cloud and explore a few tips and tricks for managing the MongoDB backend. Finally we'll pull out our smartphones and bask in the awesomeness of our apps! Nothing complicated, nothing convoluted. Just straight ahead mobile development goodness with MongoDB.
