Conclusion
Hi, this is Roland Guijt again. This module wraps up the course. This course is about making a choice and what technique to use to build your mobile app. So what is the best technique? The answer, as always is, it depends. This module is a comparison by criteria picked by me. You should be aware there are some more personal opinions in here than in the rest of the course. Feel free to disagree, of course, the opinions are just meant to provoke a line of thinking. Here's the overview. First, I'll illustrate how this module can help you make a choice. Then, we compare the three choices to each other, using different criteria. You see the criteria listed here. At the end of the module, I'll assume you have made a choice, so you're ready for the next steps. In the final part of the module, I will give you some hints on how you could proceed.
