The web has won. Or has it? Come join Billy, Damian, Deborah, Esteban, Jeremy and your host Brian as we discuss where we’re at today when it comes to building, deploying, and managing “modern” applications. We’ll look at how the web seems to be the “go to” app model, yet native apps (on computers and devices) continue to be developed and pushed by vendors, including Microsoft. Is JavaScript all you need, or is there still a place for languages like C# and C++? Does any of this matter in the era of the cloud and DevOps? If you’re a developer, you’ve got your opinion as well, so come to this interactive panel where you can put your two cents in and hear honest feedback from our group of speakers.
