If an app is not primarily directed at children, does the Federal Child Online Protection Policy apply? What is the Apps Act of 2013 and how does it impact developers? How severe are the penalties for deficient privacy policies? All these and more will be answered when you attend at Adam Grant’s presentation.


Mobile Analytics Tools of trade to predict the future

Speaker: Lenin Gali

Multi TB mobile game and app data is challenging to process. Its a daunting task when you run into data quality issues and incorrect implementation. It is utterly difficult to do anything when you choose a wrong tool for the trade. In this session we delve into several tools, processes and importance of data quality and automation of testing.


Thinking Mobile First

Speaker: Chris Matthieu

Mobile First means designing an online experience for mobile before designing it for the desktop Web—or any other device. In the past, when users’ focus was on the desktop Web, mobile design was an afterthought. But today, more people are using their mobile devices for online shopping and social networking than ever before, and most companies are designing for mobile. Mobile first requires a new approach to planning, UX design, and development that puts handheld devices at the forefront of both strategy and implementation. The digital landscape has changed, and companies have realized that consumers are now accessing more content on their mobile devices than anywhere else.

We’ll cover the following points of interest:

1. Mobile design principles
2. Shift to DevOps
3. Mobile speed
4. Turning users into believers
5. Free the data
6. Mobilize every developer
7. WYSIWYG development

Join the mobile app revolution!

    Wasabi Sync for iOS: Core Data Cloud Syncing Done Right

    Speaker: Jiva DeVoe

    Wasabi Sync delivers on the promise of record-based synchronization of Core Data based applications. Using the Wasabi Sync SDK, your users’ Core Data persistent stores will silently and transparently be kept in sync across multiple devices and even across multiple platforms.

    Wasabi Sync monitors your existing Core Data persistent store and watches for when your application makes changes to it. When changes occur, Wasabi Sync serializes the changes and sends them securely over the cloud to the Wasabi Sync servers. Those changes are then propagated to the user’s other devices and written to their respective persistent stores. Wasabi Sync requires almost no code changes to integrate with your app.


    Oracle’s Mobility Architecture and Development Framework

    Speaker: Mustafa Rahimi

    Oracle ADF Mobile is a Java and HTML5-based mobile development framework that enables developers to build and extend enterprise applications for iOS and Android from a single code base. Based on a hybrid mobile architecture, ADF Mobile supports access to native device services, enables offline applications and protects enterprise investments from future technology shifts. Please join us for an interactive presentation and demonstration of ADF Mobile!
