On January 20th, the attorneys of Marcus Stephen Harris attended the midVentures Design+Develop Series intro to iPhone and Android App development. The discussion was geared to designers, developers and product managers. Uki D. Lucas of ChicagoAndroid and Chris Grove, CTO of KeyLimeTie talked about the differences in developing apps for each platform. The comments were insightful and offered a number of strategic reasons for choosing between one platform over the other. Some of these concerns dealt with control of user experience, coding differences and the relative openness of the different operating systems. Marketing and promotion techniques were discussed as well as performance metrics. Chris Grove discussed project management issues and the importance of keeping control of your application development project via solidly drafted statements or work.
The series is informative and a great networking opportunity for local developers and this iteration was no exception. We look forward to the next one.
