Mobilex Lexington Highlights from Karim
Last week, I had the honor of attending, and speaking at, the Mobilex conference in Lexington, KY. This 1 day conference brought together mobile enthusiasts of all types: entrepreneurs, investors, developers, and other related industry professionals.
Being a technologist, and since my talk was a technical one, I spent most of my time in the developer track, but I did manage to breach the entrepreneur track a little bit as well. Some of the highlights of the event included:
- Keynote with Brian Wong: Brian is the founder of Kiip.me, a mobile in-game advertising system and is the youngest entrepreneur to ever get VC funding at 19.
- My talk on tablets and cross-platform strategies: I can’t help but give a shout out to myself. 🙂
- Mavia: A device and and app that connects you intimately with your car.
- An Android Developer Workshop led by Uki Lucas of ChicagoAndroid.com.
Overall, the conference was a huge success, and a sellout. It’s great to see this kind of innovation going on in mobile in this part of the country, no offense to my southern compatriots!
