1. Designing a mobile app from idea to implementation (1.5 hours)
1.1 Mobile Landscape (45 Mins)
A look into the mobile landscape.
Mobile development, just like engineering is a catch all term that doesn’t quite capture the complexity involved. In this session, we will be exploring what it takes to create a mobile application for your business and what you as an entrepreneur needs to be aware of when deciding when to start.
Although this is a technical session, there will no technical requirements required from the attendees – just an enthusiasm and determination.
This session will involve a walk through of how to build a cross-platform mobile application (Don’t worry, by this stage you will know what cross-platform means), including some live coding!
This is a must attend for those who are interested in mobile app’s at all levels. You will be able to discuss your ideas, get free advice and a basic consultation.
