Eventually the day will come when you’ll have to deliver some sort of mobile application. On that day (and during the months that follow) you could end up swearing a lot while you deal with whole new IDEs, APIs, programming languages, known issues and a myriad of other annoying things related to mobile development.

The practice of alchemy has captured the imagination of people for thousands of years. Even though most of its practitioners were interested in the transformation of lead into gold, the real transformation at the foundation of alchemy was a spiritual one.

How Pacific Cross Delivered Its Mobile App in 30 Days

Based in Hong Kong, Pacific Cross provides health insurance and health care services across Asia. The company has been growing for more than 25 years, and today it offers worldwide coverage for medical, life, dental, personal accident, and travel insurance, among other areas.haelthtech quote
