Abstract: In this no-code tech talk, Scott will talk game theory and game development. We’ll talk about how game principles are applied to business such as banking, healthcare and retail. We’ll talk mobile and the challenges of building native apps on iPhone, Windows Phone, and Android platforms. We’ll cover any questions anyone has on starting their own business. Patents, marketing, equity, investors, etc. This grab bag of topics will pull from many different presentations Scott has given in the past to fit the audience needs.
