    That was a very informative meeting. I really liked the format Sapient chose - an interactive and open discussion. I wish I could have stayed to hear more. I look forward to attending more of these meetings in the near future. Cheers!

    It would be great if someone(anyone) could give an outline or the key points of this meetup (for the people who couldn't make it) : (
    -What's are developers using for 2013 (PhoneGap,, native, etc. )
    -What's platforms are developers looking to develop for in 2013 ex: iOS, Windows, etc.
    -What's new on the business side of mobile development ex: hiring, NDA, app stores, etc.
    -What's working for companies(developers) and what's not

    any information about this meetup would be great

    Many of us are going to be at tonight's Meetup, but if you're near a TV beforehand at 5pm, tune into NBC4's newscast tonight.

    I'll be on in a segment about photo apps and talking about prints, user experience, and whatever else they didn't edit out.

    Thanks for everyone's support during our app premier and afterwards.
