If you have been itching to do something on mobile apps, this would be the place to be. With 3G coming to India soon and the already existing millions of mobile subscribers, mobile apps are hot. Serial entrepreneurs & tech industry gurus, all are betting big on mobile applications.
I guess, it would be wise to hear from entrepreneurs who already have a head start in this business. The speakerâ€™s page is here;
http://www.nokiadevcon.in/speakers.html I recall meeting one of the speakers in 2004 & he had a working prototype back then! Right from govt officials, guys from Forum Nokia, operators, mobile game developers, everyone from the telecom industry would be attending, so, I guess it would be a good opportunity to network & keep abreast with the latest in mobile technology. Presentations on Java, Symbian, Web 2.0 etc. are scheduled and interaction with industry these experts too.
The different sessions are Mobile VAS Industry, Mobile Technology Evolution, Technology Showcase, Developer Evangelization & more details are on the sessions page here; http://www.nokiadevcon.in/session.html
