Sure, you could stay at the office and simply read about new mobile opportunities, but here are three sessions you just can’t get anywhere else:

  • Tom Conrad, CTO and EVP of Product, Pandora
    Pandora is Mostly on the Move:
    Pandora is the poster for success in the mobile world. This 100% browser experience-based company has seen 70% of its traffic shift onto mobile platforms and devices. CTO Tom Conrad will share technical and business challenges that Pandora overcame to get a foothold in mobile, and reveal the company’s next mobile target – automobiles.
  • Erick Tseng, Head of Mobile Products, Facebook
    Making Mobile More Social: As Facebook looks to provide a full-featured user experience in an increasingly mobile world, it must overcome a fragmented landscape of operating systems, devices, geographies and networks. Erick Tseng, head of mobile, will reveal how the company is leveraging the web to build its own products and how a recent acquisition is helping deploy a unified Facebook experience on a very big scale.
  • Olof Schybergson, CEO, Fjord
    Can Invisible Also Be Amazing?:
    As the bond between mobility and cloud increases, we will need to design invisible and seductive service experiences. Device-to-cloud interactions will yield new products that adapt to device capabilities and context. Among the considerations: Who will own user data, and will push advertising will ruin user experience?
