Upcoming events: Geo-spatial matters on 20 June & The State of the Developer Nation on 4 July

Yes, that’s right. We have not one but two upcoming events in the next three weeks. Phew!

Geo-spatial Matters on 20 June – Please RSVP at http://momolo.org/event.jsp?eventid=113

First up, we’re talking things geo-spatial with the folks at UCL. Maps and Mobile are natural bedfellows and have been part of the mobile landscape for quite a while whether that's using GPS or mobile technology to determine location co-ordinates. LBS has been touted as the next big thing for at least 10 years so is it already here? Are there really opportunities? And what do real people use this stuff for?

Kindly hosted by UCL as part of their Making Money in Mobile Apps Bootcamp, we'll be exploring the state of mobile geospatial. Does the arrival of GPS equipped tablets mean that the days of the dedicated SatNav/GPS are over? What's the relationship between Location Based Services, Augmented Reality and Maps? We'll be exploring all this, most likely we'll touch on open data and a whole lot more ...

We have speakers from Navteq, Ordnance Survey and UCL.The session will be chaired by Andrew Scott who founded Rummble and is the co-founder of Magical Jaguar. Andrew has been working in LBS for 10 years so knows a thing or two about this area.

The State of the Developer Nation on 4 July – please RSVP at http://momolo.org/event.jsp?eventid=114

Sponsored by Blue Via, our July event is focussed on the state of the developer nation where we will have key players from within the developer ecosystem share their thoughts and experiences on the topic. The report: Developer Economics 2011 (free download) is the quintessential mobile developer research report. In this second annual report, we explore both what drives developer mindshare, and how brands are fast-forwarding into the world of mobile. It takes the reader across the entire developer journey, from the shift of mindshare and why "users can buy you love," to how money is made in mobile. It covers the hottest issues, from app design and promotion to monetisation and user support.

Speakers for the evening include Eli Camilleri and Andreas Constantinou from Vision Mobile, Tom Hume from Future Platforms, Simon Davis from Snaptu. Further speakers tbc.

Venue - CBI at Centrepoint. Please use the entrance at street level. Nearest tubes are Tottenham Court Road (Central Line only – Northern Line exit is closed until November) and Leicester Square (Northern and Piccadilly Lines).
