Timisoara Mobile Development Group Meetup #16

The April edition of TiMo monthly events will definitely be a special one!

 

 

We'll enter the TiMo mood by listening to and talking with the people of RomBots Team. Our fellow group members, Valentin Iftime, Stefan Juglea and Alin Adnan Vasile, will talk about Alien Rescue, their Android app adventure. The game counts at this stage for about 150k installs, lots of feedback, massive hard-way learning and interesting future plans. Extremely opened, the RomBots team will share a huge deal about what went right and what went wrong. You'll be amazed how much important each piece of input (big or small, existing or missing) is in the overall success of a mobile gaming app.

 

We'll have the honor to host (well, still via an Internet mediated connection) Horace Dediu, a Romanian-born, US citizen mobile industry analyst living in Finland.

Horace is a globally respected and frequently cited expert in the Apple phenomenon. He' s the founder and CEO of asymco, a source of reliable and first-hand documented mobile industry analysis and just successfully lunched 10 days ago, Asymconf, an extremely interesting and excellent participants-rated conference focusing on modern market analysis. Horace writes for the Harvard Business Review, and co-hosts, with Dan Benjamin, the Internet-television program The Critical Path on 5by5.com.

Horace will talk at TiMo #16 about how mobile developers and entrepreneurs will be affected by disruptions in the global mobile industry.

A Q&A session with TiMo participants will follow the presentation.

 


After Horace's talk, we'll hopefully have another entry from one of the newer TiMo members. Starting from his experience in developing for major mobile operators, Madalin Gageanu will have a rather technical presentation on embedding mobile web components in/with native apps. Unfortunately, due to a minor but annoying health issue, Madalin's availability to deliver the presentation is not 100% sure, yet.

 

However, we'll save a longer-then-usual time slot for networking and discussions on the TiMo future events and community's activities.

    Although the content was great, I think it was a bit too long. IMHO, 2 presentations per meetup should be enough.

    As an addition to the program we had the privilege to host George Lemnaru, co-founder of eRepublik, probably the best online game developed in Romania, with a global success. George presented his plans to establish a new startup in this gaming field, with a focus on mobile.

    A great game-development team. Great to hear that some apps I use are developed here in Timisoara.

    Really good meetup. Excellent to have a balanced mix of presentations on highly valuable, shareable and usable lessons learned from the development of own projects (RomBots Team and Madalin Gageanu) the high level integrative thinking of Horace Dediu covering such a wide area of information from various fields connected to the mobile industry and the appealing vision of George Lemnaru pitching his new project to Timisoara developers, after stepping down executive positions in eRepublik.

    Some problems with the internet access but in the end solved with the kind support of Madalin Gageanu and Arthur Csertus. Thanks!

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.
