Objectives of the course

The course intends to provide both theoretical and practical knowledge required to design and implement distributed multimedia applications that may be accessed from personal mobile devices.
Starting from recalling basic concepts about object oriented and distributed programming, major mobile operating systems and programming frameworks will be presented and analyzed in depth, in order to understand their functionalities and limitations. In order to validate and strengthen the acquired competences, real world scenarios will be analyzed, developing working prototypes.
