July Mobile Events Round-Up

Posted by AnneryanHeatwole on Jul 01, 2010

This month, many of the events are more corporate, with a focus on informational conferences for larger organizations. But, as always, we keep you up to date with what's happening in the mobile world! If you have an event that you'd like to share, leave a message in the comments or send us an email at info at mobileactive dot org 

MobileActive.org's July Events:

8 July, New York City, USA: Tech Salon, Participatory Mobile Sensing: MobileActive.org is hosting a tech salon focused on using phones for urban sensing. Join us for a fun, laid-back event that brings together practitioners, developers, and other curious people to learn how mobiles are used to gather and share information about the world around us. Register here.

26 July, Washington D.C., USA: FAILFaire: Our first FAILFaire in New York was such a success that we decided to host another one. Being open about learning from failure (and keeping our sense of humor!) in mobiles and ICT for development is the best way to make us -- and our projects -- better in the future. If you're ready to learn in failure (with a sense of humor) sign up now.
