Mobile business applications have been growing dramatically over the last few years and have now reached a point of inflection where mobile application development will outstrip any other kind of application development by a 5 to 1 factor.
To be competitive in this environment, you and your company must become adept at mobile application development immediately -- That is why we have designed DevCon 2018 to be "Alpha Mobile Bootcamp."
The combination of Alpha’s extraordinarily capable platform for mobile app development and deployment, plus the intense learning focus of this event will allow you to materially boost your mobile app development skills and knowledge.
Join us in Orlando, Florida this October and you will walk away confident in your ability to quickly and efficiently address your company’s or client’s mobile app requirements.
Build enterprise-class mobile apps in much less time than your competitors and learn to:
• deliver outstanding mobile-optimized user experiences
• quickly interconnect your mobile apps with any system of record or popular database
• deploy and scale mobile and web apps quickly and easily
• build-out existing desktop web solutions to support mobile apps.
Here’s the type of content we’ve assembled for Alpha DevCon 2018 to significantly enhance your mobile app development skills:
