Catalyzing Convergence

by Eric Knipp  |  July 26, 2013  |  Comments Off on Catalyzing Convergence

I’ll be in San Diego next week at the annual Gartner Catalyst conference. “Convergence” is the theme this year.┬áSpecifically, the convergence of mobile, social, and information – all backed by cloud – to bring about new opportunities and challenges for enterprises and IT professionals alike. My team is presenting a “virtual track” of application architecture and development goodness. Our presentations explore:

  • How to develop applications for delivery to mobile devices and the desktop
  • How to select the optimal development frameworks
  • How to improve your development methodology in the face of a volatile technology climate
  • New approaches to software architecture
  • How to leverage the cloud in your custom-built applications

I hope you’ll join us. If you can’t, I’ll be tweeting as often as I’m able.
