This will be followed by our original presentation: "Going Mobile: Lessons in transitioning from the enterprise".
After 11 years as an enterprise software developer, I decided to take the plunge into mobile development. Over the past 2 years I have worked on 5 apps on multiple platforms iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Several have been featured on the app store, with one breaking into the top 10 free apps.
I will share what I learned in my transition to mobile development. Essentially there are 5 main areas where developing for mobile is significantly different than developing enterprise apps:
I will explain the issues that come up in each of these areas and provide some guidance on how to deal with them.
