Innosphere Joins Panel Discussion on Multi-Platform Development

October 17, 2013 News & Updates

The three local mobile developer groups, KW Android Developers, iOSKW and KW-BBDev, have teamed up to present an event on multi-platform development. A panel of experts will address common challenges in developing for more than one mobile platform; Apple iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone. The panel, listed below, is comprised of experienced developers including one of our own.

This is a discussion driven event and attendees are encouraged to bring questions surrounding each phase of the development cycle, see the examples below:

  • Requirements: Which platform(s) should I target (first)?
  • Design: How do I design for interface, display and feature differences?
  • Implementation: Should I use a cross-platform tool, e.g., PhoneGap?
  • Testing: Can I re-use and compare tests across platforms?
  • Release: How do I manage multiple distribution channels?
  • Support: Can I push new features and updates simultaneously?

This event will also feature a 20-minute demo by Tom Walker on Xamarin – Native apps in C# on iOS, Android, Windows and Mac.
