Travis Smith presents the challenges – inconsistent feature support - and advantages – code reuse - of developing cross platform mobile applications with Mono, focusing on data access patterns.
Travis Smith focuses on .NET technologies in his day job, helping to keep enterprises truly interconnected in close to real time both on the desktop and on mobile devices. Travis also contributes to and maintains a number of open source projects, primarily on the .NET platform. You can find out what Travis is currently working on in the open source world at his blog: http://legomaster.net/.
Monospace provides developers a unique look at running their applications across all the platforms using Microsoft's .NET Framework by focusing on the Mono framework and open source .NET technologies. We will start with 2 days of talks and sessions, aiming to teach the attendees about the various technologies and innovations that currently exists. We will then end with a one day open space unconference where dialogs and conversations will help kick start the next wave of open source projects that will help the community remain competitive.
