Level: Everyone

Billy Hollis

Developer. Designer. Speaker. Author.

Every major platform shift in the past has turned software development upside down. The cloud is in the process of doing it too, right now. Current platforms will probably go obsolete faster than you imagine. New platforms, such as Google Flutter, the Uno Platform, and Blazor, are challenging the monolithic way we produce apps now. New cloud-based capabilities promise to transform the architecture of your apps, and allow capabilities in them that would have been impossible just a few years ago, without learning umpteen APIs to use them. In this session, Billy Hollis will ask you to question just about everything you do in developing apps, and help you see some of the ways you can prepare for the inevitable changes coming in software development. And he'll do it with his trademark humor, so that you'll have fun along the way.
