**Creating a Hybrid Mobile App for iOS and Android BuilderTREND will walk you through creating a native mobile app for iOS and Android devices without writing separate code in Java and XCode.  The main focus is on using Visual Studio, ASP.NET, WCF, jQuery, JSON and HTML5 to quickly get an application out on the App Store and Google Play.  This demonstration will cover how to display your mobile website in a native mobile app along with utilizing the device’s camera to take and upload photos to a WCF service.  We will also demonstrate how to call WCF services to get data in your native application from an ASP.NET application. **Presenter:
