Build scalable technology for a post-PC world
Date and Venue: October 9th 6:30 PM @ One Broadway, 16th Floor Cambridge,MA.
Post-PC devices such as smartphones and tablets are generating enormous volumes & new kinds of data. In addition, the migration of users' content to the cloud is creating a wave of rich applications.
However, building web and mobile applications that address these opportunities is challenging. Some of the key questions that web & mobile application developers face are: How to build applications that scale effectively? How to deal with proliferation of data sources & APIs? etc.
The purpose of this meetup is to discuss these topics and hear from some of leading startups that are addressing them. Join us for an evening of conversation, fun and meeting new people
