Mobile Engineers with Nathan Esquenazi

We have reported on web development far more than mobile on Software Engineering Daily, and, I wanted to get a holistic view of the mobile ecosystem. Nathan Esquenazi is a co-founder of CodePath, which is a continuing education program for professional engineers and designers.

There was much to explore–from the economics of mobile, to the state of cross platform, to the increasingly blurry line between mobile and IoT.
