Come hear Garrett Miller of MapBox share his experiences in building a mobile app for the upcoming South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference. This presentation will focus on a higher-level approach to fast mobile development using Apache Cordova and Backbone.js. Garrett will touch on product goals, design, and implementation, along with showing the code and work as it progressed.
The app, which will allow users to quickly and playfully share their location, will be out in time for the presentation, definitely on iPhone and very likely on Android too.
