Smaller Not Taller: Defeating the Mobile Application Architecture giant
Making the right decisions for a mobile project can be a very involved process of trial and error before you find a good fit. Wouldn't it be nice if you had a map? In this session we will compare frameworks and approaches based on the kind of mobile project you are doing, and walk through what the actual code looks like to accomplish basic tasks for each one. We will cover native, hybrid and mobile web approaches for enterprise-level solutions.

Cooking with GAAS, Globalization as a Service
What would a non-English-speaking user say about your product? What are the challenges that present themselves when you want to take your product global? Product team members need to be armed with the knowledge and awareness of what it takes to build a product in the appropriate locale or culture. With the drive to microservice architecture and continuous deployment product strategies, how does a monumental task like globalization fit in?

The talk will not only provide a case study of how Hudl tackled the globalization challenge across our platforms (iOS, Android, Web), but will also provide tips and tricks on testing, reliability, and the translation process. In this talk I will cover the following:
- How to start with an MVP (minimum viable product) on globalization
- How globalization fits in a microservice architecture
- How to make globalization scalable inside your organization when there are many parties involved.
If you are a software engineer, quality engineer, quality analyst, or product manager this session will be helpful if you are thinking about internationalizing. In addition, if you are already working with an internationalized product we invite you to attend as this will provide a different engineering, process, and testing angle.

Building Apps with the Universal Windows Platform
These days, Windows runs on such a wide variety of devices that designing an app that looks good can be a big challenge. With all the different screen sizes and input methods how do you design an app that provides a great user experience? The Universal Windows Platform (UWP) provides the tools and building blocks that you need to do just that. Come learn how you can leverage UWP to build apps that will run on your tablet, phone, PC, IoT device or Xbox. We will look at how you can build a responsive UI that will adapt to the screen size and how you can leverage the different features of each system in your app.
