Vote for Me for SXSW!

Voting opens today for presentations for South by Southwest Interactive 2014. I’ve submitted a proposal entitled “Surviving as a Developer in a BYOD World” and I would love your support for presenting at SXSW Interactive in 2014! Vote here:! The full presentation abstract is below:

It’s enough to make a developer want to throw in the towel. The days of creating a specific application for a specific user on a specific device are gone. Today, people are accessing apps from multiple devices with the expectation that they will perform the same on each. Not to mention, their expectations are increasingly high. As developers, how do we manage this demand and keep the code bases contained from an architectural standpoint so that we don’t completely lose our minds? This talk will cover architectural patterns that can help with sharing code in multiple places, as well as how to take the best of all the buzzword processes (Agile, waterfall, TDD, etc.) and create one process that will help ensure success. We’ll talk about which technologies to follow and how you can expand your repertoire to be able to make good recommendations for technology solutions to get the best results on multiple platforms. - See more at:
