10 Conferences for Mobile App Enthusiasts

posted in: Ecosystem | 0

If you are a developer, designer or app entrepreneur, you will find that one of the best ways to become integrated into the mobile app development ecosystem is to attend or view any of the major developer events held each year. You will get a first hand look into new developments in mobile development technology. The major platform providers such as Google, Apple and Microsoft all have their own developers conferences every year. If you are into game development there are conferences like GDC (Game Developers Conference). If you are outside of the United States, there are other major events around the globe.

 

Meet Other App Enthusiasts !

So get involved, and join the community! Attend an event in person, or if that isn’t an option for you, consider joining a group event to watch a live video stream of the event (if that option exists). Major events like Google I/O have extended events to watch the keynote and select event sessions in real time from various locations around the world. Similarly with Apple’s WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) you can watch live video streams of the event on your Apple device.

 

Here is a table of some of the major mobile development events being held this year –
