MEET APPSPOTR AT WEBCOAST

appspotrteamCome and hang out with us!

This weekend it’s time for WebCoast in Gothenburg. AppSpotr is gold sponsor and we want to meet you there!

“WebCoast, a physical venue for us that work, play and hang out on the web. A marketplace for ideas, opinions, knowledge and inspiration. A weekend where you’ll broaden your knowledge and your circle of contacts. Experience, influence and be inspired with us on WebCoast” 

WebCoast is one of the few conferences in Gothenburg that gathers creative people that work or exist on the web. This year we are gold sponsors and have several workshops and sessions to inspire participants and visitors to build apps and spread the knowledge regarding AppSpotr as a tool to evolve your communication! And we’ll have whole room full of balloons! Well…almost.

Here’s a description of what we’ll do on our workshop:
“During two hours we’ll go though how you can build apps for iOS and Android with AppSpotr. No developer skills needed! We’ll present our vision of how developers and designers will be able to use AppSpotr to deliver apps with the help of AppSpotrs API, SDK and Market Place”

We’ve been involved in WebCoast before with a session called “Build an app in 15 minutes” and we’ve also built their app in 2013 so it feels great to be back and sponsor this kind of event!

We’ll also stream our workshop directly to our Bambuser channel so if you unfortunately can’t attend, you can be a part of the magic. And of cause you can watch the stream for as many times as you want afterwards. We’ll post the link here on our blog and on Facebook and Twitter. So like/follow us so that you don’t miss a thing!

We will be attending the whole weekend and you’re welcome to hang out with us. Talk apps, build apps, take a cup of coffee or just be inspired by other creative and aspiring app builders.

There are still tickets available so go get your ticket here! 

See you there!

MEG – PODCAST AND NEW COMMUNICATION

Podcast guest, social media and the cooperation of different media.

My visit to MEG (former Mediadagarna) at Svenska Mässan was brief but still so awarding! Their estimated number of participants was 4700 people in just two days. That’s amazing!

This was my first visit so my expectations was high! I got the opportunity to be a guest on my coworker Maria Gustafssons (@mikumaria on Twitter) podcast about social media and its practicalities. How do we use it today? What’s different from a few years ago and do we lose the physical presence with todays increasing use of social media?
You can listen to the podcast via Soundcloud as you see above. The podcast is in Swedish.

Media in general and its use is in a constant change and at MEG they were all represented. From public service, printed media to the Swedish Pirate Party. A great place to mix, meet and share experience and knowledge between occupational groups and media categories. In all of this I got to meet people in various types of professions and talk about apps and the way we can communicate in new ways.

Digital media is advancing. That’s not a surprise. The world we live in today changes and we change with it. Especially the way we communicate. Social medias as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram has maybe reached its peak. That’s where apps come in! And the fact that people today can create more ways to communicate digitally than just via the traditional social medias is for some a new thought. And I was happy to implement that thought in some people, regardless of their profession.

In other words; Thank you MEG and I’ll be back next year!

WIT 2015 – THE RECAP

Authority, drive and standard breaking.

Over 700 fantastic women attended the 2015 Women In Tech at Musikaliska i Stockholm. But with over a thousand requests for a ticket I believe there’s more to see next year. With great sponsors and collaboration partners such as Spotify, Tele2, Telia Sonera, Google and more this event is something to keep an eye on.

Speakers and panel discussions with all one thing in common; female innovation/innovators and entrepreneurs with the drive and authority to move mountains.

I’ve listened to people such as Mia Brunell Livfors (Board genius and one of Swedens most powerful women), Anna Lithagen (CEO Talent Tribe), Rosie Linder (founder and CEO of Peppy Pals), Ingrid Bonde (CEO Vattenfall), Alexandra Drevenlid (Technical supervisor for Tele2), Ulrika Saxon (CEO Bonnier Growth) to mention just a few. They all spoke about the meaning and importance of good leadership, how to reach the top and how we can not only break the standard but also SET the standard and be a benchmark for innovative ideas and creative women.

There are a lot of great app developers to date that are women, but still they’re still in the shade of the fact that the industry is pretty homogenous. In fact, it’s estimated that only 4% of all mobile developers are women. We want to change that. 
My participation at WIT 2015 gave me some sort of epiphany. Where are all the talented tech women? Well, at WIT I met 700 of them. And I would like to invite all of them to try our platform and become aspiring app builders cause all of them are creative, full of ideas and awesome.

To sum up; Great event. Great initiative. And most of all; a standing ovation to the organizers MTGx. Even though there was no coffee ;)

And I would like to end this post with a great quote from Lisa Parfelt (Difference maker on Spotify):

“Get shit done and have fun!”

Which is exactly what we do on AppSpotr. We create, strive and have fun along the way. How many great apps could be created by these 700 awesome women?
