Keynote: There and Back Again: Where Mobile Has Been, and Where It Is Going
Austin Zellner has been observing how technology has been changing our lives since he was a young lad playing around in Compuserve MUDs. Currently working as a Sales Engineer for Kony Solutions (a mobile platform company), his career has spanned a range of industries, from Call Center, to Insurance, to Manufacturing, to POS Retail, and now specifically Enterprise Mobile Development. Through that career, he has seen mobile technology move from the earliest days of Windows CE, to practical B2E mobile systems, and now to the changing of the guard from targeting development to specific platforms, to adopting an approach that supports Bring Your Own Device ( BYOD ) strategy. Now he brings this insight to the table to explain why mobility matters, where it is going, and what will be coming next.
