The team behind the mobile communication app textPlus welcomes the LA community to come join us for an evening of presentations on our insights from our experiences in the mobile world, followed by the opportunity to socialize with the textPlus team over refreshments and video games!
This is a great opportunity for developers looking for the inside scoop on working in mobile to ask questions and network. The backend of textPlus is primarily written in Java, and we'd be particularly interested to talk with members of SMJUG!

Bring it to your users and they will use it. This talk will discuss how to avoid the type of thinking that dooms many companies from the giddyup. Build empathy for the needs of your users and serve them first, with your needs second. A convenient path to success may come at the cost of VALUE.
Zack Norman, textPlus Chief Creative Officer and Founder
Why are Birds so Angry? What is happening between the App and the Server? How many services does it take to make birds fly? We will be using network analysis tools like Charles to get under the hood of some popular apps and see what is really going on.
