Learning From Experience: Reliably Building Mobile and Web Apps FILLING

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

Hear from the leaders of two seasoned design and development companies about lessons learned from dozens of projects over the past several years. Dan and Scott will describe their strategy for predictably creating successful web and mobile applications, and how you can apply these lessons. This won’t just be conceptual: they will explain these concepts by showing the materials for an active project — a mobile app for a new startup. Half of the time will be reserved for a Q&A session so that you can address specific questions about your own apps and ideas.
