Organizers of APPCON, a mobile App-centric forum, recently released the lineup for their August event featuring more than 40 educational sessions covering all aspects of the mobile App market.
Organized into three tracks-App development, IT integration and the business of Apps-the APPCON educational program covers Apps for all vendors and platforms, providing a more holistic approach to technical proficiency and market opportunities than other platform-specific events offer.
“Most of the sessions are cross-platform to provide a broad overview of the development and business environment surrounding each,” said Jeff Pressman, COO of ConvExx, a full-service show and event production company based in Las Vegas that is co-producing the event. “But, there will also be specific sessions on timely topics, like beginner and advanced development for the iPad, that offer a deeper dive into the technical aspects for the specific platform.”
A Hackathon contest is also part of the program, pitting developer teams against one another in a battle for App supremacy. Through a partnership with one of the world's most innovative robotics companies, APPCON participants will be able to get their hands on the latest robotic gear and have a chance to win prizes for their App coding prowess.
