The Austin Web Developer Lunch Message Board › Developer Patent Event June 6th
|A former member||
The Application Developers Alliance is hosting a Developer Patent Summit, making its way to Austin on June 6th. This event is part of our summer-long Developer Patent Summit intended for developers to learn about patents and share stories of Lodsys letters, legal strategies and litigation costs, and their ideas about software patent reform. Each event will feature an expert presentation/overview, followed by a panel discussion between policymakers, app developers, attorneys, and other stakeholders.
I would like to invite anyone interested to this event. We've had a great response in previous cities, and it is a welcoming environment to have your questions answered. I've included additional info re: the event below. Hope to see you there!
The software patent system poses a significant challenge for developers. Patent trolls, product life cycles shorter than the patent process, and general uncertainty threatens to stifle innovation and growth in the app industry. The Application Developers Alliance is connecting experts with developers to discuss this critical issue. Join us along with industry leaders at this free event to enjoy a great conversation, food, beverages, and networking.
