New! Demo Mobile Application

Alpha CTO Dan Bricklin at AnDevCon
May 27-30, 2014 Boston, MA

Dan will be speaking on the topic of "The Use of Mobile Devices in the Enterprise."

Businesses will soon be able to re-engineer to take advantage of mobile technologies. There are a myriad of internal, business-critical apps to be built. The wide range of different devices that run Android add more possibilities. This session, led by industry pioneer Dan Bricklin, will discuss the challenge of thinking about the complete apps (front-end and back-end) with non-resident data that are needed by the enterprise. He will also discuss the user interface strategy he used for addressing a variety of screen sizes in designing a particular real-world mobile business application for reading reference documentation.
