The truth about SDK integrations and their impact on developers

Ken Harlan Contributor Ken Harlan is the founder and CEO of MobileFuse, a U.S.-based. in-app advertising and DOOH platform that serves leading organizations across retail, food and beverage, restaurant, tourism, government, and healthcare.
