TALK OVERVIEW

Advocacy for native mobile platforms

Mobile has gotten plenty of buzz over the past five years as more and more people purchase smartphones and as the app marketplace has exploded in size (3.1 million apps as of July 2015!). But if you look for mobile conferences, you'll see far more results for marketing, growth, and strategy for native apps than for developer tools or tech. So where are all the developers?

In this session, Bear will cover what's different and what's the same when you approach developer advocacy for native mobile platforms; what's been effective, and what hasn't; and how the Twitter team thinks about growing the platform.
