Abstract:

In this presentation, you’ll learn about MEF, Microsoft’s answer to the runtime extensibility problem of today’s applications, and how to implement it into your existing applications. What is MEF?

Next in Mobile: Strategy Best Practices @ BLANKSPACES Santa Monica
Nov 19 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The recent explosion of mobile applications has built a new industry that is rapidly changing and maturing at the same time.  Businesses are being founded based on mobile applications, divisions are formed focusing on supporting mobile users.  As you and/or your company venture into this new opportunity, you want to build upon best practices – why re-invent the wheel?

We invite you to join us for a discussion on Mobile Strategy Best Practices at BLANKSPACES.   A panel of CTOs, who are experienced in mobile development, will share their take on mobile and some of the best practices they established to ensure their mobile strategy is a success.  Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • What is the compelling reason for using this feature on a mobile device?
  • How often will your target customer need to access this feature?  Daily/Monthly?
  • Will this feature be easy to use on a small screen?
  • Can that feature perform well?
  • Is there enough data to transmit to make this feature work? Will it require high bandwidth.

We have a diverse group of CTOs with a broad set of perspectives.
