In Jacksonville, we are extremely lucky to have residents who have authored books on three major mobile application development platforms–iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7. During this roundtable discussion, these authors will discuss what they view as strengths of each platform, the architectural approach and tools needed to build solutions on each platform, and make predictions on what they think the mobile marketplace will look like in 2015. Then, we will open the floor for an open discussion with attendees. Two dozen t-shirts
are being have been printed (see photo below) specifically for this event and will be given away on a first-register basis, so hurry up and register at the link below!
