The Mashed Up Mobile Revolution

The ISDN Hosts....Mashable's Let's Talk the TCube!


On the evening of Wednesday 22nd February, the Irish Software Developers' Network opened TCube, a brand new venue for software professionals to learn and socialise. To mark the occasion, we hosted Mashable's Let's Talk Tech, and almost sixty mobile app developers came down.

In the beginning there was the iPhone and life was good (or at least it was once you got your head around xCode).  Then along came Android with it's multitude of smartphones & tablets to spice things up.  Now Microsoft have weighed in, getting great reviews with their latest Windows Phone. This has all the ingredients to become a classic battle royale as the big three compete for the consumer's eyeballs & designers/developers try to crank out cross platform solutions.  Is HTML5 the one size fits all answer? Or do you need to go native to take advantage of each platform's hardware & unique UI attributes.



It's enough to make you scream, “Help! I'm a developer, get me outta here!”.


JamPot Technologies' VP of Engineering, Michael Barr made sense of the Mobile Revolution & what you need to do to get the best results for you company, clients or just your own mobile project.  Michael's tech career to date has spanned 15 years and covered all the major aspects of software and web development, including lecturing on the subject. In recent years he has focussed on leading edge mobile app development for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone, exploring advanced features such as augmented reality, HTML5 and other cross platform technologies.


During the second part of the night Michael shared some of the techniques to
creating cross platform apps in a hands-on workshop and everyone got a chance to win one of two Sony Ericsson Xperia ray handsets!


Mikey also opened up a competition to attendees. The prize a brand spanking new Nokia Lumia 800 (sitting in front of me here - I'm eyeing it very jealously) provided by Microsoft Ireland, is up for grabs for the best app built using TheAppBuilder at (Closing date is Sunday 26th February at 23.59).


To qualify the term ‘Mashable' must be used in the app description.
A subscription to TheAppBuilder does not need to be purchased. It is free to build and preview an app with TheAppBuilder. However everyone who attended the Let's Talk Tech Event was provided with a discount code to publish their app for $1 (Month 1 discount - usually $29 per month. There is no contract with TheAppBuilder and the subscription can be cancelled at any time).




Free Beer and Pizza - Yay!

And that's not all.....courtesy of the world's leading anti-virus and threat protection company, ESET, and Ireland's newest recruitment agency for software professionals, A People Recruitment, there was plenty of beers and pizza to keep people nourished.
