The State of Mobile App Development: Past, Present, and Future

The mobile app development landscape is filled with a mixture of platforms, tools, frameworks, libraries, development strategies, and runtime environments. Sorting through it all is a daunting task. Picking the wrong platform, technology, and/or strategy can spell disaster for your mobile app projects.

Having a solid understanding of what’s required for mobile app development helps. However, knowing what the rest of the industry is using – now and in the near future – enabled you to make an informed decision when it comes to tackling your next mobile app project.

This session will examine the state of mobile app development: past, present, and future. We'll explore what developers are targeting today and forecast what they’ll be targeting in the next 12-18 months. We'll examine industry trends and provide a detailed analysis of the options available: the good, the bad, and the ugly. We'll look at tools and runtime environments. We'll even get our hands a little dirty with some code. You'll walk away with a clear understanding of where we're at and where we're headed.
