Building Mobile Apps – 16, 18, 24 Aug

Developer Experience From The Trenches


YOW! and Swipe Conference in cooperation with the Australian mobile user community are pleased to present three experience reports by seasoned mobile developers. Our speakers share their stories about what does and doesn’t work. The experiences cover the spectrum from UI to communicating with the corporate backend systems. This is a unique opportunity to learn, validate your own experience or share your mobile experience with others. Come early for light food and drinks, meet new people, catch up with old friends… Find out what’s happening in your local developer community.
