What we’re about
We're a bunch of Mobile Apps enthusiasts — that includes Developers, Designers, Product Owners, Startupers, and anyone interested in the topic.
We like to exchange informally on the latest news, UX/UI trends, and tech best practices of iOS and Android.
We get together each month for a beer in Lausanne, Switzerland.
We usually all speak English, so you are welcome too if you do not speak French.
PS: if you'd like to hold a more formal speech, get in touch with the group admin and we'll surely arrange something together!
Liip supports this event with location and apero. Liip invests their know-how and experience in innovative projects for the Swiss market. Liip is a self-organized (and lean!) company with pared-down processes and transparent communication that enable swift market access, reduce project-related risks and offer safer investments.
To calculate snacks and drinks correctly, please unsubscribe four days before, if you can't come.

- The challenges and joys of successful independent app development (MRB #51)Liip SA, Lausanne, VD
We’ve all dreamed of building a successful mobile app, but what does it take to actually do it?
What does it take to help people find out about your app, and what happens when a publication like The Verge writes about your app on launch day? (spoiler: it’s not all upside) How do you price it? How do you deal with polite but very direct letters from lawyers? What do you need to start thinking about before you even start coding?
In this talk Damian Mehers will share his experience building several successful software products and apps. There is no secret formula to success, but you can certainly increase your chances.
He’ll also share the technical journey for one of his apps, which was originally based on .NET and Xamarin, and then moved to Swift and SwiftUI: how do you change the engine of that car while driving at 120kmh down the motorway?
Damian Mehers started programming on 8 bit microcomputers in the early eighties, and still loves it: Imagining something and then making it real is magic.
He has built and sold several software product businesses, worked for startups such as Evernote (back when it was a startup), as well as working as consultant at large multinationals such as Nestle. He currently has several apps in the app store, one of which is almost always in the top 50 apps for its category and sometimes in the top 200 apps overall.
