Tech in Motion: DC will be hosting Mobile Madness: a debate on mobile development. Whether you are an iOS enthusiast, a fan of Android, or you prefer a responsive system, join us at UberOffices in Rosslyn to see App vs. Web go head to head. The mobile environment is constantly changing and our goal is to have an interactive debate and conversation that will cover all of the hot topics.
Sponsored in part by FiddleFly, the night will kick off on the private, outdoor patio with games, light food and free beer where we will then head inside for Mobile Madness and start the discussion. Speak up and join the debate or simply sit back, listen and enjoy the discussion!
