FREE (buy your own food and drink – it’s cheap)
It’s only fitting therefore that next week’s Geek Dinner will be doubling as the book’s launch party!
On Wednesday Jonathan will be giving an overview of the book, with a focus on the important question of choosing whether to development a “native app” or a “web app” when targeting the exploding smart phone market (iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Palm, etc.). Jonathan, who has quickly become one of the foremost experts on this topic, will examine the pros and cons of the different approaches, complete with live demos. This short session will be packed with invaluable information for anyone considering expanding their business to the mobile world.
Update: Jonathan has written a blog post about the Mobile Web at RINexus.com.
Please RSVP at Facebook (In the interest of making it more “viral”, we’re experimenting with doing our RSVPs on Facebook – and while you’re there please join our Facebook group. And if you want to join our very-low-volume email announcement send an email to Jack Templin, firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and affiliation.)
As always, for first-timers here are the details on the Geek Dinners:
- The event itself is FREE! Beverages and food are for sale at AS220’s bar and new restaurant.
- It’s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whoever, arrive and take off whenever! And don’t worry about eating or not – come famished or full – eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (that’s not say the food isn’t good – it’s actually great)
- Topics of conversation will vary as they will at any gathering of geeks, but many of us will be talking about AJAX, mash-ups, start-ups, new devices, innovative business models, interaction design, social computing, digital art, web services, etc. etc. etc.
- There is Wi-Fi so bring your connected device of choice.
