Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

RSVP Required - Over half of TV consumers today use their mobile devices while watching TV (Pew Research, http://goo.gl/dkbXf). With the attention shifting away from the big screen, new ways to keep TV viewers engaged are necessary.
In this workshop we will teach you the skills to save the TV and the couch potatoes. We will cover software techniques required to build amazing mobile + TV experiences, relevant standards, and platforms that enable these experiences in a cost-effective, scalable and profitable way.
In our workshop, you will learn to build mobile and TV presence for a fictitious content network from the ground up in one day. You will start your day by creating fun video content, then syndicate it to YouTube, build a mobile and Google TV experience around it, and integrate analytics as well as monetization support. By the end of the day, you’ll feel like the media mogul you deserve to be.
