The IEEE Central Texas Section ComSoc/SP Chapter invites you for a talk on "Future of Mobile Debate".
The Future of Mobile Debate: Native Apps vs. Web Apps
Andrew Donoho, Donoho Design Group
C. Enrique Ortiz, About Mobility
speakers have had plenty of discussions with colleagues and friends
about native apps, written to run directly on the operating system,
versus mobile web app, written to run in a mobile browser. There is no
right answer -- only questions and positions. This debate, in public and
on stage, will refine your view of the choice. There will be many
breaks in the debate for you, the judges, to ask refining questions of
the participants. This will be fun.
