In our ninth show, the CHAOS team and our special guest, Sheldon Borkin, Chief Scientist and Vice President; Progress Software discusses on how to develop and manage mobile app projects. We consider the needs for projects that develop applications specifically designed to work on smart phones and mobile devices such as an iPad.  In this program we explore how mobile projects are different from other types projects and what people should be aware of when executing these types of projects. In this session we consider:

  • Unique distinctions of mobile app projects
