Building Cloud-based Cross-Platform NATIVE Mobile Apps

With the explosive growth in mobility, many enterprises are looking to connect their cloud services to their customers’ and employees’ mobile devices. This requires solving the fragmentation that exists in several areas – multiple user experiences on various devices, integrating public and private clouds, and various skill sets required for various mobile platforms. In this session, Appcelerator will discuss how developers can solve the fragmentation problem by utilizing an integrated mobile architecture to deliver cloud-connected mobile apps.

    Excellent presentation by Tony from Appcelerator demonstrating his knowledge about company background and technical overview. Box (dot Net) presentation by Jeremy great info on platforms, libraries, and security. Nothing to kvetch about here.

    The presentations were informative and intriguing. There were also many interesting questions/suggestions from participants.

    Tony's presentation provided a well rounded perspective and demo of the Appcelerator approach to the mobile development paradigm and new cycle of 'write once run anywhere' for mobile that java targeted a decade ago for computer platforms. I came to find out all about what their platform, tools and approach provides, and left fully satiated. Jeremy's presentation was also informative with good perspective and information. Keep these meetups coming...perhaps PhoneGap next?

    While the presenter Tony made a pretty big deal of suggesting that this would be a technical session and NO marketing at all, it felt as though there was a lot of marketing in there and less hands on overall. That being said, it was very informative nonetheless and helped us all get a basic understanding of the product line.
