What a great group of experts, and they all have a mind-blowing session prepared for you! Yes, the first group of Geekend speakers are unveiled -- an incredibly diverse group with top-level content from hundreds of miles away and down the street. Meet them October 15-17 at Geekend! We don’t catch you up, we move you forward!
Mobile App UI/UX Design and implementation is a rapidly evolving ‘art’ that is viewed as a black box by others in the design/development community.
Yvonne Jouffrault (@yjouffrault), tech entrepreneur, and founder of Tour Buddy Apps will moderate a panel at Geekend on building mobile app products: from concept to design to development. Her goal is to shed light on that process with stories and examples from those who do it every day.
Now you have a clear view on how to create a mobile app -- why not start your own company? Good idea, but the problem is that 90% of them never get off of the ground. Why?
Because the founders (and their investors) spend too much time investing in the infrastructure to get to their first 1,000 customers before they get the first 10.
Emerging management frameworks like Lean Startup can help mitigate the risk of failure but they are no guarantee of success. Kevin Dewalt, (@kevindewalt) entrepreneur, angel investor, founder of SoHelpful.io is going to show you how to get your first 100 customers by being unscalable.
