Last night we had Kieran and myself present to an audience at Bristol College, as part of a series of lectures on mobile app development. Amongst those listening were developers, business owners and founders, as well as coders from various disciplines looking to get some more views on the world of application development.
We split the presentation into two parts, and in sharing our experiences we talked about the key things that should be considered commercially ahead of investing in the tools, SDKs, equipment and necessary paraphernalia required for app development. A review of the economics of application development sparked a lot of debate in the formal and informal sessions, which was really valuable.
In talking about the nitty-gritty of the technology, Kieran delivered a broad summary of the available platforms, their pros and cons, and re-capped some of the ‘gotchas’ associated with each of the target platforms. This was also well received, with Kieran approached after the event to discuss these topics further.
This event was really good – we enjoyed the interactions from a really interested and diverse audience. With two more interesting events in the series it’s worth going if you can be in Bristol over the coming days.
