No one has been able to miss the fact that mobile development is booming on every front, be it iPhone, Windows Phone 7, Android or some other platform. Some prophets are even going as far as to say that the PC era is ending, and the new mobile and tablet era is the next step of the computing evolution. Don’t be left behind! Attend the Mobile track sessions to find out at a high level what is happening in the mobile space (with new releases like IOS 5 and Mango), or at a detailed level how to get started developing on each platform, as well as how to test your applications. If you are already into mobile development, there are some deep dive sessions for you as well. Also, some mobile content is found in the Cloud track as well. Mobile is organized by Falafel Software Inc.

Microsoft just released the Developer Preview of Windows 8 that includes the all new Metro interface. Not only is the interface a major facelift from previous versions of Windows, but the way you design and build applications has some very significant changes. A new programming library called WinRT has replaced the existing .Net Win32 libraries, and Microsoft has also made some major changes to Blend, the design tool. Blend now creates HTML5 code! This four session track includes two sessions directly from Harry Pierson, a Microsoft architect from Redmond as well as two sessions on Metro Design and more from Guido Rosso, Danny Riddell and Michael Lucaccini, three of the founders at Archetype.
