Our staff has had many a great conversation with RJ on Twitter and the relationship is yet another example of how powerful social media can be for connecting like-minded professionals within their fields. Be sure to follow RJ on Twitter and tune in at 3 pm on Thursday as he will post three articles and topics on Mobile Web Apps, the move to HTML5-based apps over native, and the rise of enterprise BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs for us to discuss.
