Mobile developer network hosting Oxford barcamp on 2nd December with speakers from Google, IBM, Nokia, Calvium & Everything Everywhere.


November 17th 2010 - openMIC, the UK’s leading independent mobile developer network, is coming to The Jam Factory in Oxford, on Thursday, December 2nd.

“Over 100 mobile developers from across the UK are expected to converge on Oxford for this barcamp session which will focus on the future of apps and how developers can make money from them,” said Chris Book who heads-up the openMIC network. “Mobile is the fastest evolving device on Earth – the iPhone has created a platform specific market while mobile operators are trying to demolish their walled gardens to open their networks to off portal commerce. OpenMIC is the place to come and explore the business potential of these developments.”

During the afternoon, barcamp sessions will allow the discussion to flow freely and continue with smaller groups. Delegate places are free of charge for developers – register: www.open-mic.org.uk

openMIC is organised by University of Bath’s Innovation Centre which supports mobile start-ups and sponsored by Digital Communications Knowledge Transfer Network to enable mobile developers to come together and innovate with the mobile opportunity.
