      Consumers are already becoming familiar with in-car apps, such as navigation and streaming audio. But what will the future look like? What are the areas in which the auto industry sees the biggest potential? Our Autotech leaders will share their expertise with our developers so they can benefit from insight into the automotive technology landscape, and knowledge of consumers, drivers and fleet managers.  This session will explore the app opportunities in the auto industry to get developers’ creative minds going in order to create the best possible apps and services and produce the wins for the industry, developers and consumers.
