MobiDevDay 2011

This weekend I got the opportunity to attend MobiDevDay in Downtown Detroit at the Compuware building. This event is a gathering of mobile developers and enthusiasts in the area. We network and learn from each other through a series of lectures and presentations.

At the event this time, there were presentation on Android, iOS, Windows Phone 7, Kinect, and a few other development technologies.

Going into the event, I was excited at the prospect of getting an introduction to more platforms, as well as possibly learning more about iOS and Android. I was certainly not disappointed!

I attended sessions on XCode, iOS Programming with Blocks, Intro to Android 2.x, Intro to Windows Phone 7, and Connect with Kinect. Each of these sessions served as an introduction, or overview, but the presenters each gave their own contact information, as well as links to resources for the topics which they presented.

Definitely looking forward to networking with the people I met at this event, and becoming more involved in the local developer's communities in and around Detroit!
