Held at Cardiff City Hall at the end of November, the AGI Cymru winter conference was attended by around 80 people and had a fair mix of managers and developers from different organizations around Wales. The mobile stream proved to be quite interesting with three presentations from ESDM, Cardiff Uni and MapAction.
Laine Skinner from ESDM presented a paper about a mobile application we have written for our HBSMR product, which is used by Historic Environment Records to manage heritage inventories and to support casework.
The presentation described how we created a mobile application over a short-targeted project in January 2011. The project itself was completed in a RAD/agile manner and highlights a successful way of working with a technology which itself is also undergoing huge change every few months.
The presentation is available online here.
