Join us for a technical how-to session on how to develop iPhone and
Android apps with MongoDB backends for the cloud. Let's skip having to
learn three different languages and jumpstart the development process
using what you already know. We'll utilize Appcelerator's Titanium IDE
to create a native mobile application targeting multiple mobile
platforms. Next, we'll deploy our app to the cloud and explore a few
tips and tricks for managing the MongoDB backend. Finally we'll pull out
our smartphones and bask in the awesomeness of our apps! Nothing
complicated, nothing convoluted. Just straight ahead mobile development
goodness with MongoDB, Red Hat Linux, and a PaaS.
