Fridays @ the Corridor - Top Ten Tips for Mobile App Development

Businesses are moving toward mobile first strategies. Mobile application development is hard because, in most cases, this translates to native iOS and Android applications as well as mobile browser support. Just because you are mobile first, your software still has to run on a myriad of other platforms including laptops and desktops. As you transition to mobile first, here are the top ten techniques for making your mobile application development a little less hard.

At the March Fridays @ the Corridor, David Elam, Founder of PayNearMe, will show us how his company was able to plan, design, and implement the latest products using the best native technologies combined with Cordova, PhoneGap and AngularJS. The result is a hybrid mobile app that can run natively on iOS and Andriod as well as adaptively respond to touch enabled or desktop browsers. Register to attend this event HERE.

  • Fridays @ the Corridor - CODEtalk- Monolithic vs. Microservices Applications

    Traditionally, the monolithic architectural style has dominated application development. This server-side approach method puts all of its functionality into a single process and scales by replicating the monolith on multiple servers. Issues arise, however, with scalability and as more applications are being deployed to the cloud, the monolithic style has given way to a new approach- a microservice architecture style- where services are independently deployed and scalable.

    At the April Fridays @ the Corridor, we examine these two architectural styles and discuss the trend towards the microservices architecture style. Tom Wilson from Jack Russell Software and BoomTown's, Jason Finneyfrock, will share their insights on what one style will dominate the future of app development – or perhaps another approach is on the horizon? Register HERE
