Programming Mobile Devices

Instructor: David Keathly, Senior Lecturer, University of North Texas
Instructor: Elizabeth Pannell, Professor, Collin College

In this track we will explore the rapidly expanding and changing world of mobile devices and applications. Participants will explore basic concepts and techniques for mobile application development for Android and iPhone platforms as well as some platform independent tools and techniques. We will also discuss integrating mobile device use and development into your classroom activities. Some basic programming knowledge is required but language-specific or advanced skills are not required.
