I’m really excited to be a presenter at the upcoming ConvergeSouth Tech conference in Greensboro, NC. ConvergeSouth’s call to arms is Creativity Online For Everyone. When you talk about bringing technology and creativity together you have my attention.The conference will take place on October 1st and 2nd, 2010, on the campus of North Carolina A&T State University and will feature three tracks: Personal Branding, Internet Strategy for Small Business, and Developing Outside the Box. My session will be in the development track. I will be co-presenting with Brian Hitney from Microsoft about mobile application development and marketing.
We live in a time where the functionality of mobile devices has made them incredibly useful and interactive. And now these smart phones are being adopted by the masses. All of this is creating tremendous opportunity for marketers and developers to create smart phone apps that harness the innovative functions of these devices. We will take a look at the development and marketing paths of three different mobile platforms, including: Google Android, Windows Mobile and Apple iPhone, (and iPad). Specifically, my part of the presentation will focus on application development for the iPhone and the iPad. My company Connect Marketing & Design is currently finishing an original iPad application for a new restaurant opening in downtown Greensboro, called Bin 33. The app is an interactive wine list, and we took a unique approach in developing it by going outside of Apple’s Standard Development Kit (SDK). I’ll write more about that app in another post. So if you are in the Southeastern U.S. and interested in technology, online marketing, social media or web development you must to join us for this exciting conference!
