Mobile app development has really exploded over the past few years. And with that, so have the number of options available to developers. Developers are looking for ways to maximize code reuse while being able to deploy to multiple platforms. In this session, David Totzke and Lori Lalonde talk about cross platform development, and the options available to developers - PhoneGap, Appcelerator's Titanium, Telerik's AppBuilder, Sencha Touch, and Xamarin, to name a few.
The new release of Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 dramatically expands the ways in which developers can build applications and games, by adding several new programming models, and also expanding the application model to support a broader set of developer scenarios. We explore these in depth and give you the information you need to get started building applications that leverage these features today.
