Mobile Monday & Girl Develop It Present: Summer Conference Panel Discussion

The group Girl Develop It Ann Arbor launched with a bang this summer with a hugely successful  launch party which was then followed by first post-launch event featuring a talk on Mobile Development Technologies. The talk was very well received and sparked a lot of interest in mobile technologies  from its predominantly techie female members. 

The Mobile Mobile Ann Arbor group has been a central resource for supporting mobile business community in Ann Arbor and its events seek to facilitate idea sharing, concepts, technologies and best practices in the Mobile space. Engaging with other local groups with similar interests has been instrumental in promoting the vision.

To that end, Mobile Monday Ann Arbor and Girl Develop It Ann Arbor are excited to co-host the August meeting where we will have a panel discussion of  this year’s two biggest developers conferences in the Mobile space. 

By August 4th, both major mobile platforms will have had their big annual development conferences for the year, and we will have had some time to look into the new developments, how they will impact our work, and more fully digest how our worlds have changed once again.  Both Apple and Google came out strong at their respective events.   This should be a great year for both platforms!

This event will recap the big announcements at both events and how it impacts the mobile world from a variety of perspectives!
