Talk night #5: Server-less mobile apps (Bath)

Server-less mobile apps with MBaaS - e.g parse.com, netmera, kii, kinvey.

Mobile backend as a service (MBaaS) is a newish thing that as an mobile app developer focus on the app and let someone else auto gen APIs, libraries, handle scaling and maintenance.

Too go to be true? let's find out.

#Overview/What is MBaaS? - James Frost

#Kinvey -brief overview and poke around kinvey dev console - Scott Alexander-Bown

    Good job guys! Like others have said, really nice pace today. I think 1 hour of speakers is optimal! Thanks to both the organisers and speakers!

    Very sorry, but have been struggling with man flu all week. Was hoping to win the war with Lemsip but have to admit defeat. Please let me know if they are any PPTs or similar as I would like to read them later.

    Does anybody have a rough idea of when the event is scheduled to finish? I'm sorting out my travel plans. Thanks!

      Hi Kiran, the talks will be starting at 7.30pm and will probably last 60-90 mins so we should be done by 9pm, then onwards to a pub to continue the discussion.

    Here's a link to map for those (like me) who haven't been to the Innovation Centre before: http://www.bath.ac.uk/bathventures/forbusiness/The_Innovation_Centre_-_Bath.pdf

    Looks like I'm pretty busy that night (I'm seeing Richard Stallman up at the university first) so I may arrive late. If the event fills up before the night then I'll happily cancel my spot as it's not fair to deprive someone who can definitely make it to the whole thing :-)

    I'd love to be there, but I am afraid that is going to be a busy week for me. Have a great evening!

    This sounds right up my street - I'd love to attend if I may?

    Thanks,
