Description

Join us to discuss the future of mobile tech platforms

In a world where consumer demand changes as fast as the direction of the wind, building native applications for proprietary platforms is now too expensive and too slow to deliver a great customer experience.

With the UK reaching 80% of smartphone penetration, m-commerce in the UK is expected to be worth £58.50 billion and account for 51.7% of the country’s retail e-commerce sales by 2021.

React Native, initially developed by Facebook, increasingly is being adopted by a number of businesses. We've invited a few of the leaders to share their experience and insights.

What you will learn?

  • Strategic considerations when selecting the right tech for the job

  • Benefits and downsides of using React Native

  • What the future holds for mobile product development



This is an exclusive event for business leaders of large enterprise businesses and pioneers in the tech space.
