I was invited to speak at the Twitter Developer Nest event tonight by Angus Fox, one of the organisers. He asked if I’d be willing to do a ‘state of the nation’ mobile applications presentation, but customise it to the audience of (desktopish) developers potentially interested in going mobile.
“Bring it on!” I said.
So I shall be there from 6pm this evening — if you’d like to come along, entry is free, but you do need to register.
There is also free pizza, beer and good networking — supported by new sponsor, PayPalX.
