Navigating the Cross-Platform Mobile Development Minefield

Until recently, Cordova and Xamarin were the de facto options when it came to cross-platform mobile development. However, the rise of React Native has led to renewed competition and innovation in the space, with the fresh ideas from React Native challenging the incumbent technologies to respond. Come to this session to explore what this could mean for your business or next app!

The presentation will focus on these 3 leading but unique technologies: Cordova, Xamarin and React Native. It will cover their architectural differences, how each interacts with the device and how "native" it is, what the developer experience looks like, and the sweet spots to set your project up for success.
