  Title: Mobile Application Development Strategies 
  Presenter: Brian Sherwin has been consulting with Microsoft technologies for 17 years. He has developed web based solutions for large retail banking and energy clients as well as service oriented solutions in Healthcare and Marketing. Recently, he joined Microsoft as a Technical Evangelist to help companies and individuals successfully develop applications on the Microsoft platform. When he’s not working to learn the latest code named project at Microsoft, you can find him backpacking with the Boy Scouts, working on robots or sampling some single source coffee (or drinking enough to keep up with his five kids).
  Abstract: With the proliferation of mobile devices, it seems like there are just as many options for developing solutions for them. From mobile web to native apps (and hybrids in between), a developer is forced to make choices that will definitely determine his future. So what approaches make sense? Where do you get started? And what are the tradeoffs? In this talk, we will explore XCode to C#, Xamarin to Phone Gap, Native to Hybrid. We’ll engage in a conversation about what the future looks like for a world filled with devices, even ones we haven’t thought of yet.
  Cost: Free to AITP professional and student members.
$10 for non-members.
