Building Business Apps for Mobile Devices

2:45 PM Sunday
Room:

Speakers: Beth Massi

“Consumerization of IT” is a growing trend whereby employees are bringing their personal devices to the workplace for work-related activities. The appeal of tablet devices for both consumer- and business-oriented scenarios has been a key catalyst for this trend; the growing expectation that enterprise apps should run on “my” device and take advantage of the tablet’s form factor and device capabilities has particularly opened up new challenges for custom business app development. In this demo-heavy presentation, we’ll show how LightSwitch in Visual Studio 2012 makes it easy for developers of all skill levels to build HTML5/JavaScript business apps that can be deployed to Azure and run on Windows 8, iOS, and Android devices.
