NOVEMBER MEETUP- Mobile Web & PhoneGap
First of all, I just wanted to say that I am really getting into the groove of posting again. I definitely will be posting quite regularly now, and soon will be posting video content once I get a Canon or Sony camera! Now to business, I want to talk a little bit about Mobile Development and my first experience with Dallas Mobile [ DalMob ]. I honestly did not know that a resource like this group existed. The reason that I found out about the group was from a tweet posted by BottleRocket [ @_BottleRocket ]. This gave me some interest and the topic was on Mobile Web and PhoneGap, two topics I love!! So I headed downtown to TechWildcatters [ @techwildcatters ] to learn more about what this group was about and what I could learn.
I arrived at 6:48 and needless to say, I was late but the event was in full networking and discussion as the set-up was being polished. I will say that the Asian cuisine and beer was quite awesome while I waited to view the information. I gazed the room and found a few familiar faces from the AT&T Hack-a-thon event from the previous weekend. As I sat down to enjoy the refreshments we chatted about the experiences from the hack-a-thon and exchanged information learning more about careers, self interests, and the reason we were there for DalMob. I really found out a great deal from just talking with a few developers that were in attendance, and gained a new perspective on their ideas for mobile development.
The organizer of the event, Justin Leger, started the event by greeting everyone and letting us know what was going to be discussed for the night. He also stated that he was looking for volunteers to help with the group. He then proceeded to introduce Ean Schuessler, a co-founder of Dallas-based digital media consultancy, Brainfood. Ean started off the presentation talking about Mobile Web and presented us with the URL – http://dalmobdemo.clients.brainfood.com
