uMobile Panel Discussion: Why do we even need this mobile stuff and where is it headed?

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

9:00am to 9:45am (PST)

This will be a panel discussion about uMobile and what has happened since the last conference, where we are today, and where do we want to go in the future. If you have any interest in uMobile or mobilizing your portal, then this discussion is for you.
We would like to engage in a meaningful discussion on how uMobile might be used throughout the Apero portfolio of applications as well and how can we support that effort moving forward.
