You have come to the best place in the world to be and become an App Maker.

If you want to make movies, go to Hollywood.
If you want to make musicals, go to Broadway.
If you want to make apps, go to Appsterdam.

— Mike Lee, Mayor and founder of Appsterdam

Our goal is to bring app makers together, and our mission is to support their interests worldwide. We established Amsterdam as the capital of Appsterdam - the world capital of apps - to establish a centre of gravity for our industry, to provide a place where all app makers can gather, and to create a framework for people to give back and support the community.

Read One year of Appsterdam

 

Appsterdam has its roots in the Appsterdam Mobile Party during ICE Amsterdam, March 2011. Since 2010, Mike Lee has been traveling around the world, looking for the best place to live, work and establish a community of App makers. This great city and the ICE Amsterdam event convinced Mike that Amsterdam was the place to be. iCE Amsterdam and Appsterdam have agreed that this movement from now on should move forward as ‘Appsterdam'.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
