Last weekend (the Saturday 31st) the mDevCamp 2014 took place in Prague. It was a mobile developer conference that we took part in as one of the sponsors. I would like to share with you my experience here on our Developer blog today.
There were more than 20 speakers who wanted to share their ideas and experience. Among all different topics there was one all around across the event space. The internet of things, wearables, glass etc. This was the thing that really resonated with the audience and that all mobile developers hope to be the “next big thing” in mobile apps space. They will be able to create specific app for specific use cases used on totally different device than mobile/tablet. Imagine the Google Glass or other devices like smart watches. Who knows what is going to be the next?
What we wanted to share is that our Platform can be beneficial also for mobile developers. You can basically use GoodData to measure and work with your mobile app users OR you can build an Analytical App on the top of the GoodData Platform. This is possible thanks to the openness of the Platform and thanks to the REST API that you can use to get your numbers to basically any device available. So if you are interested in building some crazy usefull apps on the top of the GoodData. Let us know!
All in all that was a great event not only from the topics and a lot of interesting speakers, but also from the organization point of view. I think everybody enjoyed great program and food. So what are 3 things I got from this event?
1) A lot of developers still doesn’t use data analytics properly, or do you?
2) Hardware is definitely getting bigger attention thanks to APIs
3) There is a lot of mobile analytics potential around
Thanks to Inmite for organizing this interesting event and I hope to see you next year!
