Come piece together the future of mobile development

Fragments, our new conference on mobile development in modern teams, is in two weeks (12–13 Sept).

We are now bang in the middle of the convergence of mobile apps — Android, iOS, and mobile web — with Progressive Web Apps making the lines between all of them blurry. Users expect apps to look and behave the same on all platforms and features to be rolled out simultaneously.
