I was filming at Mobile Monday Silicon Valley last night. I came straight off the British Airways flight from London and hopped in a taxi to Palo Alto before digging out the camera equipment and hot footing it round-the-corner to the event.
I was there in my capacity as producer of Mobile Developer TV. I met a ton of interesting people and managed to persuade most of them to go on camera so I’ll be bringing you that special edition episode shortly.
There must have been 300+ people in attendance and, although the venue provided plenty of seats, it was standing room only, especially during the presentations.
The format that organisers Kate and Mike have been using recently is roughly 6 x 5 minute presentations. So you get a quick-fire look into the minds of 6 developers within 30 minutes. Hugely compelling and very, very interesting. The format keeps everyone interested and the 5-minute limit (observed by most) ensures that the presenters deliver the salient points swiftly.
If you’d like to have a poke about the presenter line-up, here are the links:
You can, incidentally, check-out a preview of Zhiing in Mobile Developer TV’s episode one published last week.
