And now the slides from this years talks

First up we had Otto Virta who had bravely risen from his sick bed to come and tell us all about how to use the power of HTML 5 to be able to build apps quickly. Slides are online here Next up was Elias Pietila, who could not quite manage to drop Wooden Labyrinth 3D […]

A big thank you to all the speakers and attendees of MDC2012

So, that’s us over for another year. This time there was only around 30 of us, but we got to listen to some really good talks. I think I got most of it captured on an N8, and all the speakers have agreed to share their slides. If you have not already, like us on […]

Good news everyone…

Once again, Qvik has stepped up and taken action to help the community to not be hungry on the day by sponsoring the event. If you or your company would like to help out and expand the budget to allow for extra luxuries like soda or maybe even as much as some crisps, then please […]

Rough agenda for the day

We have secured the first speaker, Otto Virta from Both of the active mobile developer communities have volunteered to put on a “mini-hack-a-thon” during the afternoon. So you have an opportunity to meet both Android Aalto and Windows Phone Aalto Community

MDC 2012 will be March 17th

So, with MWC (Mobile World Congress) happening this week, and nothing orgnaised so far, I decided to reserve Aalto Venture Garage for Saturday March 17th. This is a week later than we normally hold MDC, but I wanted to give some of the folks I asked to help out chance to respond! Signup on the […]

MobileDevCamp 2012

Date change

Were we ambitious or crazy? Either way, we looked at the calendar and realised that it was just too short a time to put together the event we had thought of. The new date is November 25th to 27th. There will also be a “warm-up” event on Wednesday 23rd in the evening, so keep that […]

Hackathon on October 14-16th

So, we got the confirmation and the event is ON! Bonnier publications is partnering with MDC to run a hackathon. The core ideas are; to have fun, learn new stuff, meet new people. Oh, and if you build something that changes the world, that’s a bonus 😉 There will be a “warm-up” event earlier in […]

You asked, we are attempting to deliver

So, a number of folks have talked to us about setting up a more “hacking” or “doing” type event, and this time of year seems appropriate. Doing something exactly 6 months after MDC would put it in August (still Holiday season), so we have slid it a bit later in the year. There are a […]
