This morning on #c9d9 we were joined by Patrick Debois, Nassim Kammah from Etsy and Trent Peterson from AWS, who are gearing up for a brand new DevOpsDays-styled event they are putting together — called Mobile Delivery Days.
As a preview to the conference, happening March 21-22 in SF, we discussed the challenges that they were seeing in the mobile delivery space and the reason they got together to bring us this event. We talked about the tools and patterns in the mobile app ecosystem and how there’s a lack of clarity around what to use and how to use it, which is what they hope to solve for by bringing practitioners to attend the event, share their experiences and learn from each other.
