About

About Fragments:

Fragments is a conference on the state of engineering, design and product development in the mobile ecosystem – in India and abroad. Fragments will be held on 1 and 2 March 2019, in parallel with ReactFoo Bangalore.
The 2017 edition was held on 12-13 Sept, 2017. You can view videos from the conference to understand the nature of talks presented in the previous edition.

Format:

Fragments 2019 will feature talks – full length (40 mins), crisp (20 mins), demos (10 mins) and Birds Of Feather (BOF) sessions (60 mins).
You can also propose hands-on workshops of 3-6 hour durations. Workshops will be held a week before or on the days after the conference.

The 2019 edition will be held on 1 and 2 March, 2019.

The mobile development landscape has changed tremendously over the last few years. With the maturing of the mobile ecosystem, we are now seeing a convergence of platforms. Android, iOS, and mobile web are the only ones left, and with Progressive Web Apps, the lines between them are also getting blurry. It is now more important than ever to have your app look and behave the same on all platforms, and features need to roll out simultaneously.

Fragments wil provide a platform for those who have dealt with these issues at scale, to share their approaches, tools, and lessons learned.

You should attend Fragments if you are:

  • Sitting on a 2-3 year old platform-specific codebase, and would like to know whether to refactor or rewrite, and how to do so in a future proof way.
  • A product manager, team lead, engineering head or developer who is considering cross platform development frameworks like React Native more seriously and wondering which to choose.
  • A designer or developer who want to learn from peers on streamlining the processes and workflows to make a more efficient mobile development team.
  • A native Android or iOS developer who wants to stay ahead of the curve and understand cross-platform frameworks they should invest time into
