There is no app!

There is no app!

Mobile platforms are evolving and getting richer and richer in features with every new release. The OS itself is becoming the primary interface for users to interact with, as are a new category of (wearable) devices. What does this mean for us as app developers? Are the days of the traditional “mobile app” numbered? How do we serve our end users and optimize their mobile moment as much as possible?

Join Roy in exploring how we can create compelling mobile experiences, leveraging platform features in iOS and Android as much as possible, and utilising new possibilities with wearable devices. We’ll look at how we can do this in a cross platform, yet native manner using the Xamarin technology stack and the power of the Cloud!
