The purpose of MobCon is to network and deliver tech talks for mobile developers, designers and startups. Talks that can truly help them to shape their products and services.
MobCon is divided into four main parts. Design, Development, Business and Venture. We aim to bring people coming out of all these segments together to share ideas, experiences and opinions to help each other.
We all like to play. That is why we combined education with entertainment. MobCon is boosted with lightning talks, coding challenges, live band performance, and networking afterparty. It will tune everyone for the extra dose of information.
Superstar designers will talk about standards, principles and recommendations to a stunning design. Their knowledge will come out of a real-world experience backed by the companies they have worked for.
From coders to coders. Tech talks from experts in the field of iOS, Android and Windows Phone. They will share insights about coding and tools that can simplify every developers work.
Companies that have mobile apps as a source of their revenue or a tool that helps to communicate their services better. Talks by businessman that share opportunities and possible benefits that arise from mobile apps. They will discuss what to prepare for a client, how to get hired for a project or how to aim for an added value.
How to get funded. Presentations of investors and their portfolios. They will share valuable advice how to prepare a project for funding, who to come to or what to be very cautious about.
Small but very interesting part of the conference. Presenters have very limited time to present their startup ideas, projects or inspirations in rather entertaining way.
