Market Your App Through Social Media
Marketing your app is usually a second thought to most developers and designers, but it takes a community of people to market an app using social media. As a co-creator of Twitter, and author of the upcoming book “140 Characters: A Style Guide for the Short Form“, Dom Sagolla will describe a unique approach to marketing software.
Dom Sagolla, founder and CEO of DollarApp
Dom Sagolla helped create Twitter in 2006, and shipped his first book, 140 CHARACTERS: Style Guide for Short Form, in October of 2009. We don't need Hemingway to show us (though he did) the incredible impact that well-written short sentences can have. In the digital age, it has become increasingly important - crucial, even - to harness the power of the short form (evidenced by Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, etc.).
Dominic Sagolla's 140 CHARACTERS: Style Guide for Short Form aims to do for the short form what Strunk & White’s The Elements of Style did for good writing on paper; via lessons in grammar and composition, but also discussing the importance of simplicity, honesty, and humor.
Dominic, a graduate of Swarthmore and Harvard, worked as a developmental engineer at Odeo when it became Twitter in 2006, and was involved in its initial stages of development. He is an engineer with AdobeAir, the founder of DollarApp, an iPhone application development company, and was responsible for the official Obama '08 iPhone Application. 140 CHARACTERS includes a foreword by Jack Dorsey, the engineer who conceived of Twitter, and current Chairman of Twitter. The book was released simultaneously as an interactive iPhone application (with full text) from DollarApp and in print & e-book form by John Wiley & Sons.

Together we can change the future of payments
App Stores are today’s main mobile apps distribution platform. And mobile payments are becoming a game changing technology, with opportunities everywhere you look. Developer innovation has been stifled until now because it's so hard to make money. But it's not about technology, it's about solving fundamental challenges people face when trying to pay or get paid.

Introduction of Round Table program by Ajit Jaokar
Introduction of Table Masters
Each session will be moderated by Ajit Jaokar. Each table will have a table master who masterminds the discussions at the table.
Like the iPhone, the iPad has also created it’s own ecosystem. But although the iPad dominates the tablets scene, many more devices have been launched at CES and the mobile world congress. We also have a lot of devices deployed around Android Honeycomb Nokia - Windows7 also will have their own Tablet deployments.
In many ways, Tablets represent the ‘Post PC’ phase – and we are soon going to manage three devices: the PC, Tablet and Mobile device. For many, the Tablet is likely to be a content consumption device and depending on the tablet size, the device is not likely to be ‘mobile’. Thus, a media tablet should have three key features: 1) It must have the form factor of a tablet which includes touch input, always on etc 2) Media tablets are optimized towards content consumption(browsing, video, books, magazines etc). Some like the Amazon Kindle are optimized towards specific content types such as books and 3) Media tablets have an appstore
Some of topics covered in the themes will include:
12.20 – 13.00

Heleen Sluijs, Azzugia
Bij het maken van applicaties voor iPads en andere tablets wordt bijnaaltijd de nadruk gelegd op techniek en design: voor welk platform bouwen we, welke software kan ons daarbij helpen, hoe moet het eruit komen te zien, wat is de flow van de applicatie? Allemaal belangrijk. Maar dan is de app klaar en moet er content in. En niet eenmalig: goede applicaties vragen om dynamische en up-to-date content.
Daarom is het belangrijk al tijdens de ontwerpfase na te denken over content: welke content is beschikbaar, wat moet erbij geproduceerd worden (en door wie), wat is het contentplan, hoe richten we redactionele processen in, hebben we een redactiestatuut nodig? Heleen Sluijs praat uit jarenlange ervaring met grote online contenttrajecten. De bedrijven binnen haar Liquimondogroep leveren redacteuren, contentspecialisten en contentexpertise: Romae voor websites, Azzugia voor mobiel en E-ditore voor tablets.
Heleen Sluijs richtte 11 jaar geleden webredactiebureau Romae op. Dit bureau is uitgegroeid tot de belangrijkste leverancier van
webredacteuren en content-management specialisten aan
overheidsinstellingen en bedrijven in Nederland. Maar de wereld is in beweging: content wordt nu ook bekeken op een mobiele telefoon of een tablet, ook in de vorm van apps of online magazines, ook met gebruikmaking van bewegend beeld. Daarom startte Heleen vorig jaar drie nieuwe bedrijven: Azzugia voor mobiele content en applicaties, E-ditore voor online uitgeven en Videamo voor online video producties. Samen met Romae vormen deze bedrijven nu Liquimondo, de bewegende

Managing mobile technology within enterprises
This session will tackle issues around how you manage mobility technology, costs, applications, and the rest of the capability. Mobility is tough for an enterprise to get its arms around because it's not an IT issue or telecom, or procurement, or HR, or legal issue--it's all of these. And it's also complicated by the fact that it's the quintessential "consumerized" IT capability.
