Based on feedback from numerous interested parties in the Tulsa metropolitan area, we will be launching a Mobile Tulsa (mobiletulsa.org), a new mobile user group on April 19th. This group will focus on topics of interest for both developers and business people in the world of mobility, with a specific focus on business applications as opposed to games or other consumer applications. In the beginning we will meet as a combined group, but we plan to arrange for independent meetings covering technical and topics depending on the number of participants and the specific areas/items of interest.
There are over 61 million smartphones in the US today, and it is projected there will be 24 million tablets sold in the US for 2011. Combine this large number devices with the availability of well over 500,000 applications for Apple and Android alone, and it’s easy to see why developers and businesses are so interested in mobility.
As a group we plan to cover industry trends, development issues, app store experiences, etc. Anyone interested in mobility is welcome to attend, including developers, marketing people, and entrepreneurs to name a few.
The first meeting will be at:
The Maple Room
Hardesty Regional Library
Tuesday, April 19th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm
