Our Annual Academy is back October 1st...

We’re very happy to let you know that The Mobile Academy is now back for its 6th season and as usual we’ve updated the schedule to reflect ever changing industry trends. Our 200+ alumni have gone on to receive awards, launch successful new products, establish important partnerships, receive early stage funding, win competitions, get jobs they want and get to the top of the App stores.

The Mobile Academy is produced by Mobile Monday London and UCL and the talks, workshops and surgeries are led by many well known industry expert practitioners who are kind enough share their practical insider tips and best practice. See our line up of more than 30 tutors: http://themobileacademy.org.uk/whos-who/ .

Over the 34 hour programme, we address a broad range of topics across business, design and how to work with technology - all the elements we think you need to develop successful mobile experiences. You can see the full programme here: http://themobileacademy.org.uk/programme/. Topics include how to build successful teams, HTML5 vs Native, adopting lean practices, how to work with developers, how to market your mobile app and understanding the latest market opportunities - and by the way we specifically do not teach how to code!

We keep the price for the Academy heavily discounted with access for startups at only £500, rising to £1000 for more established mid sized businesses and £1500 for the bigger guys (all prices + vat + booking fee). There is no other course like this which carries a Certificate of Continuing Professional Development; covers the breadth of the mobile topic and has so many magnificent industry experts poised to help.

This year we are delighted to also offer a bursary place. Apply here: http://bit.ly/1L9dRZp by 9th September.

The course runs every Tuesday and Thursday night, 6.30pm - 9pm, from 1st October to 3rd December mainly at Idea London in Shoreditch. For more information, check out the website: http://themobileacademy.org.uk/ or contact julia@themobileacademy.org.uk
