iMug Gala Event at Our New Location

iMUG is Moving!

Beginning 26 August, iMUG is moving to a fabulous new location at The Library at The Dock, the new Melbourne city library in The Docklands.

For several months iMUG has been experimenting with providing online access to our meetings for members who cannot come to the CBD. We have live streamed several presentations, but the quality was quite limited by the upload speed available at Ross House. This new facility has a state-of-the-art presentation room with full AV capabilities and a robust Internet connection providing NBN speeds.

For our initial meeting we are planning an exciting program of guest speakers, and we will be streaming the meeting and getting feedback from our remote members. We hope you can join us for the evening as we begin this new phase in iMUG. 

The evening will begin at 6:30 with an informal reception, followed by the formal meeting at 7 pm. Street parking is readily available, and tram lines 11 and 48 have a stop 50 meters from the door. Note that space in the presentation room is limited, so if you plan to come please RSVP here right away so we can save a spot. We do not want to disappoint you on this big event.

    There is still time to register for our gala iMug event on 26 August at The Library at The Dock, our new meeting location. Our featured speakers will be Josiah Humphrey, co-founder of Appster, and Josh Guest, managing director of b2cloud. Come learn the latest in the mobile world as well as a behind the scenes look at the founding of a successful startup.

    Be careful with directions to The Library at The Dock. Both Google and Apple Maps do not have the locations exactly right. The map link here in Meetup is correct, but the easiest way to come is to take Tram 11 or 48 to the end of the line, then walk straight ahead for 50 meters to the Library door.

    See you next Tuesday!

    We are pleased to announce the second speaker for our special 26 August meeting: Josiah Humphrey

    Three years ago when they were both 19, Josiah Humphrey and Mark McDonald co-founded Appster with $3000. Today Appster is the fastest growing mobile app developer in Australia, employing more than 100 people and approaching 200 apps and prototypes developed. They have developed apps in wide-ranging fields including healthcare and monitoring, surfing, promotional games, stock trading, personal assessment, jewellery cost estimation, and playing the guitar.

    Josiah will be interviewed by Garry Barker, technology columnist at The Age newspaper, and they will talk about developing apps and the need, or not, for apps in the corporate world. Josiah and Garry will also cover the story of Appster and the challenges of a fast-growing company in the online world.

    Make sure you RSVP now for this exceptional event.

The introduction of Google Glass and the recent launch of Android Wear and other wearable devices are only example of what is coming very soon.

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.
