Barcamping for mobile app & web service developers

When: Friday 7th December 2012

Where: The Innovation Centre, Broad Quay, Bath, BA1 1UD

This event has now taken place

Come along and hear from experienced mobile experts who have seen how companies have implemented mobile technology in their business. From Voice and SMS to Native Apps through mobile web come and learn how to engage with your internal and external customers through mobile.

Communication, Data Management and Collaboration are at the core of the enterprise challenge – how can mobile apps deliver effective solutions? Voice and SMS has been used for a long time and with web based API’s for managing workforce or customers through voice and text messaging there has never been a better time to implement mobile services as part of your offering. What about native apps? Aren’t they too expensive and difficult to develop for a workforce that has all different types of phones, some owned by the company, some not? Shouldn’t we be building enterprise apps using web technologies? HTML5 means it will be much cheaper and the service will work on any phone?

With companies like SAP and Oracle taking big steps forward with mobile being added to their platform the next few years are going to be interesting in the mobile enterprise.

Barcamping for mobile app & web service developers

Friday 8th July 2011 – 9am to lunch

This event has now taken place

Bath Ventures Innovation Centre Broad Quay, Bath, BA1 1UD

openMIC notches up its first ten barcamps next month with an appfest in Bath. Regular openMIC barcampers will notice a few changes to our regular format this time which will include the following:

10 Q’s from the Camp Chief

After Coffee & Registration we’ll be kicking-off the morning with Camp Chief, Chris Book (@bookmeister) interviewing a top UK app developer Stephen Mellish, Head of Mobile, Radical Company – Chris gets to pose 10 of your questions.

What do you want him to ask?

10X4 Pitches

The next Session will be ten stand-up slots for four minute pitches. Pitch slots are open to all openMIC barcampers to apply for – just let us know which of the categories below you want to appear in and let us have a 140-character description, title, or whatever on what you’re pitching about. We’ll be needing those pitch applications in by Friday 1st July though.

10X4 Pitches Categories:

Fav. App: Pitch & bitch on what’s great or not-so -great about your favourite app. Why you downloaded it, paid for it & use it. And what needs to happen next for you to keep it, upgrade it or recommend it. 

Start-App: Got an idea for an app? This session gives you the chance to pitch for partners, funders and developers. Beware it’s an open forum, but openMIC does gather some of the finest developer minds on the planet (s), so if your idea can make it here, you can make it anywhere. 

Mi-App: Built an app? Your mother must be proud. Pitch up in this session and tell us about it. What did you learn in the process, what do you like about it what you would you or could you have done differently? We believe that success is contagious, so successful app developers please apply for a pitch in this category and help us all become better developers! 


After the 10X4 there will be roundtables and plenty of opportunities to network and discuss some of the themes coming out of the earlier session.


HKB of course. Free lunch at the Hong Kong Bistro for all barcampers.

Registration is free for up to 60 delegates – Pitchers get priority places.
