Sydney | Microsoft & Readify present: Modern Apps, Modern Processes
Wednesday, November 14, 2012 from 8:15 AM to 10:30 AM
Sydney, New South Wales
The IT world is in the throes of yet another seismic shift, this time very much led by the consumer. It has led to the rise of mobile and tablet computing, cloud based applications, corporations adopting the ‘bring your own hardware’ approach, touch based interfaces and the demand by users for rapid, if not continual updates to the applications and services they consume.
This consumer led revolution isn’t just impacting developers writing software for the consumer market, it is also affecting the expectations and attitudes of the corporate market and raising the bar for what people are expecting from their internal systems.
In such a world the tools and approaches needed to develop modern applications also need to change.
With the launch of Visual Studio 2012, Microsoft is providing tooling that targets the new Windows 8 platform and HTML5 based web applications in addition to providing support for existing development platforms.
Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 also delivers comprehensive tooling for a modern agile application lifecycle, supporting continual delivery and improvement.
This session will take you through the steps of just how this can be done, and how a development team can build modern applications with great user experiences targeting the latest technology platforms.
