I’d like to meet app developers and publishers in person. Any events in London?

Well, for  a start you can go to the free monthly event organised by London Smartphone:

…you can socialise, meet developers in person and listen to lots of senior folk from the mobile world give seminars (seminar motto: “Always interesting, never long”). You’ll need to register on the site, but otherwise entrance is totally free – unlike the drinks.


Purpose: To bring together developers and publishers of Iphone/smartphone services

Developers: this event will help you showcase your ideas, find interesting work and swap notes with other developers.

Content publishers: this event will introduce you to the programmers who can make your content come alive on the iPhone and other smartphone devices.

It’s hoped that both content and tech folk will gain a fuller understanding of each other’s needs. Our first few meetings will be in small and informal settings, so much the better to have the one-to-one chats that lead to paid work and finished products all round!

Invited to attend:
– Content publishers – print and online (book publishers, newspaper and magazines publishers, games, web publishers etc)

– Software developers – individuals or agencies

– Phone manufacturers and operators

– Angel investors and VCs

– Associated professional services e.g. SEO and advertising

– Anyone with a commercial or organizational interest in the iPhone and other smartphones e.g. novice app producers
