The February meeting of Mobile Twin Cities is set for Monday, February 9th at CoCo, Downtown Minneapolis
This month’s presentation…
Mobile Applications at Scale! with Brent Kastner and Abby Allen from Homespotter (Formerly Mobile Realty Apps.)
Building, testing and deploying a mobile application for both iOS and Android platforms can be a challenging prospect for many companies to tackle. Imagine a world in which not one app, but 50, 100 or even 200 mobile applications are being developed, tested, and deployed on a regular release cycle. That level of production focus is the reality for the team at HomeSpotter. Brent and Abby’s discussion will focus around our strategy to tackle these technical and process challenges using concepts “borrowed” from the lean manufacturing process, lean startups, development culture and the tooling/automation required to support our business.
Brent Kastner, VP of Engineering at HomeSpotter and former CTO of GovDelivery, Inc. is a software as a service (SaaS) technology veteran focused on startups and early growth stage companies. Brent is passionate about mobile technologies and brings an intense focus on building quality and scale into engineering teams to speed business growth.
Abby Allen, Director of Product Implementation at HomeSpotter, is passionate about the nexus of process and technology. As the former Support Automation Specialist for Google Adsense, Abby helped automate 89% of incoming publisher support volumes. At HomeSpotter, she focuses on product documentation, internal tooling, and process automation to enable scalable white-label mobile solutions.
In the meantime….
We are thrilled to announce the keynote speakers for the 6th Annual Mobile March conference to be held March 26th, 2015 at the Earle Brown Heritage Center in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Park. This year’s edition of Minnesota’s longest running mobile conference includes Keynotes from:
Mark Wilkie, CTO of social sharing and entertainment company BuzzFeed, on app strategy and the role it plays in this fast growing company.
Also scheduled to speak is Billy Jurewicz, founder and CEO of Twin Cities digital agency Space150. He’ll offer a peek into the future and recap the state of digital to physical technology with insights on what’s to come, what’s a fad, and how businesses can navigate these choppy waters.
This year’s keynotes represent what Mobile March is all about; sharing information and educating across multiple topics on mobile development, business and use. Keynotes of this stature are really icing on the cake of the full day of sessions covering all kinds of mobile insight.
