I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today - presentation given by Kristina Podnar at the J. Boye Philadelphia 13 conference.

Come and share in the discussion of lessons learned from developing mobile sites and applications for major TV networks and publishing houses.
This presentation will focus heavily on how you, as a non-technical lead, can succeed in leading a technical development project.
