Details

Dan Bricklin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Bricklin) was the co-creator of VisiCalc and is known as the "Father of the Spreadsheet".

Dan will share his story from the VisiCalc days, when software was at a nascent stage and work such as his went on to influence the software industry in general. We will hear about the projects he has been working on since then and the things he has learned along the way about innovation, software, mobile and the associated technologies.

Dan will also talk about his foray into the mobile world, with the popular iOs app Note Taker HD and the most recently the HTML5 app AlphaRefReader. Expect a close look into how he is shaping the Enterprise Mobility space with his work as CTO of Alpha Software, the company behind Alpha Anywhere which is a complete environment for building brilliant HTML5 business applications.
