Mobile Midwest Conference to Discuss Trending Mobility

Mobile MidWestWhen people typically think about XDA they think custom ROMs, kernels, and themes–and these three bring a lot to XDA. What people sometimes forget is that mobile applications also contribute to XDA, with Android Apps and Games being one of our largest sections. Last year, we created the App Development Forums so that those interested in learning about, discussing, and collaborating on app development would have a central place.

One of the ways we also look to encourage mobile development is through our support of developer resources. We even went so far as to create our own xda:devcon last year. It is to that end that we are announcing our support for the Mobile Midwest Conference coming to Kansas City, MO on April 23, 2014.

Mobile Midwest: Connecting the Future will discuss how mobile is creating new opportunities in the economy and altering every facet of life. It will also explore how developers and companies can leverage “Mobile First” to create new opportunities for themselves and their company. Attendees will hear about the latest trends and discover insights from innovators who are all solving different types of problems in the industry (mobile security, mobile health, mobile payments, mobile AI, etc).

The lineup of speakers includes Silicon Valley founders & executives recognized by Time, Forbes & Inc:

  • Christy Wyatt – CEO, Good Technology
  • Steve Huffman – Co-Founder, Hipmunk / Co-Founder, Reddit
  • Matt Galligan – Co-Founder & CEO – Circa
  • Ben Milne – CEO & Co-Founder, Dwolla
  • Raj Singh – CEO & Founder, TempoAI
  • Suneet Singh Tuli – CEO & Founder, Datawind
  • Dr. David Albert – Co-Founder & Chief Scientist, AliveCor

Join 400+ developers in Kansas City with a full day pass for only $299. Be one of the first 5 registrants to use promo code xdadev to save 30%!

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
