Tech Nottingham: Android V iOS- Fight!

This month we’ve taken a little break from the blog to prepare and present an actual talk. Steve and Dave did an excellent job presenting the pros and cons of the iOS and Android development platforms.

They first presented some of the main features of both platforms and debunked a few myths along the way. They then ran a practical session giving the audience the opportunity to make their own app.

After a little wrangling with Eclipse, one of the Android development programs, two teams presented their prototypes and a winner was announced.

Since I (Annie) was probably the only non-programming mind in the room I thought I would occupy myself coming up with a design for the prototype app.
