Mobile Developer TV is heading to Paris

We haven’t launched officially yet (where ‘official’ = deciding on a logo, implementing the theme) but the diary is already choc-a-bloc here at Mobile Developer TV. We’re putting on an event this month in Paris, France. I’ll have more details soon — but I can say that the event will be in the last week […]
