In a very short period of time, personal computing has progressed from your desk, to your lap, to your pocket, to your wrist. As the iOS SDK (born iPhone SDK) and App Store near their tenth birthday, join us for a retrospective on what mobile and desktop software development were like before iPhone, how it changed, and how it will continue to change, with people who were there from the beginning.
Matt Drance is a developer, consultant, author, and part-time stay at home dad living in Northern California.
