The mobile landscape today is in a crazy state of flux! Currently (depending on your favorite analyst agency), Android has approximately 80% of the mobile market share and iOS has about 13%, when just two years ago iOS accounted for nearly 30% and Android just 52%. Microsoft and Nokia have finally tied the knot, and after solidly securing third place in the mobile platform wars, Windows Phone may be ready to make a run. Meanwhile, in many parts of the world, BlackBerry market share is on the decline.
If you are a software developer, this change can be hard to manage. How do you plan for mobile projects when the platforms are constantly changing? The days of coding against only one platform (Windows) are quickly going away, forcing everyone to figure-out how to tackle mobile while minimizing developer pain.
And that’s what the next Telerik Icenium release is about! We are going to MAXIMIZE the reusability of .NET developer's skills and tools with some cool new updates to our cross-platform hybrid mobile development platform.
Unfortunately, I can’t tell you exactly what we're releasing today, but I can tell you that if you're a .NET developer you DEFINITELY want to join us for the release keynote webcast. Register for the Icenium Release Keynote - Thursday, September 26th, 11 AM EDT right now!
Gartner recently noted that, “The pace of innovation in the mobile space will continue to increase. Cross-device development continues to be important for any company's ability to scale mobile capability. As mobile requirements grow, companies will require large numbers of mobile apps going forward.” At Telerik, we couldn’t agree more.
The next Telerik Icenium release addresses specific challenges mobile app and .NET developers face every day, making it possible to tackle the crazy, constantly changing mobile world. And because we love .NET developers, this next release is all about making cross-platform hybrid mobile development easier than ever…just for YOU. We’re unveiling it all at our release keynote.
