David Carver and Tom Davis will take a look at the role and creation of a Mobile application for iOS and Android and how it helped in the awareness and outreach for a social cause. One that led to the successful saving of a team. One that helped #SaveTheCrew. David did go against Goliath... and Won!

In the talk we'll discuss how the #SaveTheCrew movement came to be, how the idea for the app came about, what items the Organization wanted from the app, as well as the quick turn around and development time frame. We will also look at the role of Social Media and the integration opportunities that were provided and leveraged. The talk will briefly address the various technologies used.

So if you want to see how a group of fans beat the odds, and how mobile applications helped bring the message to those that needed to hear it, then this is the talk for you.
