Event Details

#TechInMotion Presents: Battle of the Decade, iOS vs. Android
Wednesday, December 12th from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Join us at General Assembly on November 7th for a technical debate on a HOT topic in the tech community: iOS or Android? We will kick of the evening with a networking session where tech lovers of all kinds are encouraged to mix and mingle with others in the NYC tech community, while enjoying some delicious grub.

After an hour or so, the battle will begin!

Two credible leaders in the mobile engineering space will present their reasons for choosing their particular platform to develop their mobile applications. The debate will be moderated by a platform agnostic engineer who has built apps on both platforms. This conversation will cover the pros and cons from an engineering, scalability, marketability, and of course profitability standpoint of each platform.

Food and beverages will be provided.
