Our Second Keynote–Chad Jones on the Future of Mobile!

We announced a while back that Miguel Carrasco would be our first conference keynote, talking about “The Evolution of User Interfaces”. We’re thrilled to announce that Chad Jones will deliver our second keynote on The Future of Mobile!

Chad is a former Apple Engineer who worked at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, California. While there Chad was involved in integral development of Apple's Mac OS X operating system. Upon his return to Canada, Chad taught Canada's first university accredited course on iPhone programming at the University of Saskatchewan. Chad was also an integral part of the team responsible for developing iUsask, Canada's first iPhone application for university students.

After the success of iUsask, Chad received requests from educational institutions across Canada, US, Europe, and Australia prompting him to found CollegeMobile in 2009. The company was established to fulfill the growing opportunities for mobile application development within both education and business markets.

He continues to instruct the mobile development course at the University of Saskatchewan and is currently developing a text book on the subject. More recently Chad’s team created FaceMobile, a FaceBook client for iPad that was featured in Apple’s New & Noteworthy section on the App Store.
