Ever ponder how mobile computer applications are changing our lives and where these electronic guides are taking us?
You may find answers at the final free event of the "Leading Edge of Technology" Speakers Series March 22 at 7 p.m. at Columbia Center for the Arts.
The event is organized by the Gorge Technology Alliance (GTA), a membership group open to Gorge residents involved with technology businesses.
Four nationally known Portland-based computer application (app) developers will provide an insider's view of mobile app development and trends.
"Local connections with the Portland tech community helped us identify who's really leading the pack in mobile app development," said Jessica Metta, executive director of GTA, on how the presenters were selected.
Featured speakers include Raven Zachary with Small Society; Jason Grigsby with Cloud Four; Dave Howell with Avatron and Marcelino Alvarez with Uncorked Studios.
These successful industry designers have developed mobile apps for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
All four speakers regularly work with businesses and other organizations to change the way people connect with each other and experience the world around them.
The presentation is designed to interest anyone who uses apps, as well as businesses thinking about mobile or web application strategies.
As a result of a grant from Google sponsoring the series, the presentation is free to the public
Columbia River Gorge Tech Alliance seeks to promote the technology business sector of the Gorge by helping start, grow, expand and sustain high-tech companies.
GTA meets regularly and provides networking opportunities with education-based or speaker events focused on technology business resources in the area.
"The tech-networking community is very active in the Gorge and always welcoming new people to get involved. GTA has two events every month for people to connect through," noted Metta.
