Upcoming area mobile conferences – Snow Mobile and CocoaConf Chicago

Leave a Comment

Here are a couple of upcoming mobile conferences that I’ll be attending. If you’re an mobile app developer in the area, you should consider them as well!

Snow Mobile 2013

February 15-16
Madison WI

This is a brand new conference so unfortunately, I can’t give a review or preview for it. I do know that it’s put on by the same folks who have done UXMad and Madison Ruby and I’ve heard nothing but good things about those conferences.

I believe the conference format is is single-track conference and includes presentations on various types of mobile development – iOS, Android, Windows Phone and mobile web.

One of the interesting things that they have done with their other conferences is to have additional speakers from completely different disciplines outside of software development. Given that the current speaker lineup features a coffee professional and an improvisational workshop trainer, it would seem that Snow Mobile will follow in that vein as well.

CocoaConf Chicago

March 7-9
TBD – Chicagoland area most likely

This is a independent iOS and Mac OSX development multi-session conference held outside of Chicago. I attended last year with a few other Milwaukee developers and had an informative and very fun time. They have a great speaker lineup from around the country including authors from the Pragmatic Programmer series of books. It has a┬ásolid technical focus so if that’s your goal, you’ll be very pleased with this conference.

Hope to see you at one or both events!
