Are you involved with mobile application development or will you be in the future? This session will include: an overview of Mobile Application Best Practices, an MTA Project Spotlight and mobile project examples. Mobile development topics such as platform and design considerations, trends in test automation, technology stack architecture and optimizing the user experience will be addressed.

Sam Cheung, Mobile Development Lead with NYC DoITT, will provide an overview of the mobile development resources available to NYC government staff. These resources include Mobile Application Development Standards, Hybrid Mobile Platforms, Native Mobile Application Decision Guide and Native Mobile Application Development Frameworks.

The MTA Enterprise Mobility Journey Spotlight will focus on a proof of concept for migrating an existing hybrid mobile application to a native application utilizing a Mobile Application Development Platform. The MTA team expects to achieve higher productivity and shortened development time with an integrated mobile app lifecycle management in the cloud.

This is your opportunity to hear, first-hand, the mobile government experience. Come ready with your questions for those in the forefront of this developing field.
