Mobile and IoT Win! Now What?

Smartphones now outnumber tablets and PCs combined. Mobile developers and testers make more money than their old-school counterparts. Now that mobile has won the race, a new set of questions arises. How has mobile changed—and how does it continue to change—software technology and the economy? What does this mean to you personally? How does mobile affect technology choices, company strategies, and your career? Jason Arbon shares how to capitalize on the mobile win. Mobile forced a reinvention of how we design, build, and test software. How can these lessons from mobile be applied to web and legacy apps? How about to new IoT apps? And to new apps-as-services? Join Jason for a peek into the future—to the day when an app is just an app, on all platforms, and no one cares about mobile-specific issues anymore. Although mobile will be the dominant force and primary software hub, it will live in a context spanning desktop, web, IoT, and services. Discover how you can leverage the mobile win and your mobile technology experiences to accelerate your career, improve software, and be ready for the next “mobile-style” revolution.
