Cool things are only just beginning in the mobile field.
Just think about it: The iPhone is only five years old. If it were a human, it would be in kindergarten. And how many of us can say we reached our peak when we’d been around for only half a decade?
The point is that, along with mobile technology itself, Float is moving right along with it. Case in point: Look at how much our Float Mobile Learning Symposium has changed in just a year.
Last year, we hosted our first annual Symposium at Bradley University in Peoria, Ill., in front of 100 people. We considered it a great success based on the packed out and the overwhelmingly positive reviews we received. But like so many people do with mobile, we were looking to take our Symposium one step further.
That’s why this year, we’ve decided to hold the Float Mobile Learning Symposium during Techweek in Chicago at the new startup incubator, 1871, only four floors away from Techweek’s main activities inside the Merchandise Mart. To compare the events over the last two years, the venue can boast nearly triple the amount of people in a city that more than 2.5 million people call home.
Over the next month, we’ll be featuring blog posts from mobile experts and thought leaders: Shay Howe of Groupon, Aaron Silvers of Problem Solutions, Kris Rockwell of Hybrid Games, Robert Gadd of OnPoint Digital, and Steven Hoober, whose book, “Designing Mobile Interfaces,” has been released since speaking at last year’s event.
Techweek 2011 electrified Chicago last year and is sure to do so once again. We’re hoping to play a role in that.
So what are you waiting for? Join us in Chicago as we discuss where we are and what lies ahead. Sign up for the Float Mobile Learning Symposium today>>
