MoMo Belfast – Sept. 23rd – Mobile Education

This month is back-to-school time, so how fitting to consider the market for mobile learning products and services, where in the US it reached $958.7 million in 2010, estimated to reach $1.82 billion by 2015! Call that an opportunity! According to Ambient, the US is the top consumer of mobile learning, followed by Japan, South Korea, the UK, and Taiwan, representing 70% of the total 2010 global mobile learning market.

If we say ‘mobile education’ you probably think Apple, Google, Pearson, Sony, maybe Blackboard. But right here in NI, we too have strong players in this massive market that is now blossoming. Will you play a part in it in 2014?

We’ve gathered a panel of speakers from three innovative local companies that do amazing stuff in the sector, namely AURION, MINDMILL and EXAMTIME. Please Register via Eventbrite

Meet them at our new venue – The Hub – which is the HQ of Propel, the INI programme that incubates the digital start-ups of tomorrow. You’ll feel the energy in the place and go away with the head buzzing with ideas for making your mark in the mobile education/learning space.

Smile, it’s Monday!

MoMo Belfast – 25th June – New Crop Event

It’s end of university year again, and in light of bottlenecks in the local market for mobile/web jobs, we’ve decided to do our bit to help local tech companies.

So we’ve invited the soon-to-be graduates in computer studies from UU, QUB and also those of the Kainos AppCamp to come do a “no strings atttached” 3-min. pitch of their most recent mobile work (expect apps!), you’ll see how much they can already do at such a tender age!

It will be a great opportunity for them to showcase their skills – maybe leading to a job offer on the spot – and for us to welcome the new crop of mobilists in our MobileMonday community.

As a fitting venue for this next gen., we’ve chosen Farset Labs, a new shared workspace for web/mobile tech folks that looks like a startup itself and is already establishing itself as the  place for networking.

As always, do register, as places and sponsorship funds are limited.

See ya soon!

Colm and Norbert.

MoMo Belfast – April 30th – Mobile Payments

Mobile payment solution providers have mushroomed in the past few years, while the receptivity for accepting mobile payments has increased. Based on a recent end-user survey by VDC Research, 37.1% of retailers claimed that they were either using or currently evaluating mobile payment/ POS solutions. While the interest for consumer-oriented solutions such as LBS is higher, the security and compliance requirements for mobile payment solutions are a lot more complicated. Please Register Here

So we’ve selected a diverse panel of speakers to look into all this. Hear them say what’s happening within that space, they represent mobile payments platform, hardware device and mobile banking app:

Alan Dunne, Marketing Director, 3V Transaction Services (Blackrock, Co. Dublin)

Eamon Scullin, CEO, Fern Software (Belfast, Co. Antrim)

Dave Gormley, CEO, MobiPayPoint (Newry, Co. Down)

There’s a burgeoning eco-system in financial services in Newry, so it was natural for MoMo Belfast to go “south by south-east” and host this event in a new hi-tech incubator (Emerald Valley). Mobile Payments is also the topic you most voted for on our LinkedIn group (600+ members!), so we’ve listened to you and deliver.

Monday, 30 April 2012 from 17:30 to 21:00
Emerald Valley
The Bath House 4 Canal Quay
Newry, United Kingdom

We will also take the opportunity to remind the entrepreneurs among you to participate in the Innotribe Startup Challenge, that is currently open until 12th May. The EMEA heat will be in Belfast this year!

We work hard to keep the MoMo events free of charge, and we ask you to register (due to venue space constraints) and if you register, please do come, or let us know if you can’t anymore (latest by Thu. 26 April); that way you release your place to someone else on the waiting list – plain common sense and a nice community rule, innit?

See you all in Newry!

MoMo Belfast – Dec. 12 – The Merry Christmas Do

The MoMo Merry Christmas DoChristmas time is upon us … again?? yes, so we thought we’d organise a merry evening for everyone who follows MobileMonday.

When you arrive, we’ll give you A FREE DRINK and we’ll let you loose to network like world masters (esp. if you had used Belfast-made Shhmooze before). At some stage we’ll ask a few of you to brief everybody for 90 seconds on the wonderful work in mobile you’ve done in 2011 (no slides) – hey presto, free promo!

Then we’ll mix you up with total strangers in teams of 4 for our Xmas Mobile QUIZ and after raking your brains (we’ll stop the pain after 30 min.), we’ll see who the winner is. And you’ll decide who the winner of the Best Mobile Achievement of the Year is. Presents galore!

The term quiz , first recorded in 1782, meant “an odd or eccentric person.” In English dialects, the verb quiz acquired senses relating to interrogation and questioning. This presumably occurred because quiz was associated with inquisitive, or perhaps the English dialect verb quiset, “to question”. There is no record at PRONI of any association of the word “quiz” with the expression “Mobile Monday”.

So, ready for a lump of craic to escape your PC corporate Xmas Party ?

Aye, register now and bring along those colleagues who never get out of the office.

The Deer’s Head
1-5 Lower Garfield Street
BT1 1FP Belfast, United Kingdom
Monday, 12 December 2011 from 17:00 to 22:00

See you at the Deer’s Head.

Did we mention that it was free?

MoMo Belfast – Sept. 26 – Smart Accessibility Workshop

The Vodafone Foundation has set up the Smart Accessibility Awards to celebrate apps that help people in four key areas: Social participation, independent living, mobility and well-being.

As part of this initiative, alongside our friends at MobileMonday London, we’ve teamed up with the ICT KTN and the Vodafone Foundation Smart Accessibility Awards to bring you in Belfast a half-day workshop (start at 3pm) looking specifically at this area.

This event is free of charge, but we ask you to register (click here) since the number of seats is limited. The awards are free to enter until 15 October 2011 and there’s a prize fund of €200,000.

The goal of the workshop is to inspire and enable app developers and entrepreneurs like you to create useful tools    for people who have visual, aural, cognitive or other impairments by helping you understand and empathize what life is like for people in this situation. This empathy and understanding is created by bringing together app developers, entrepreneurs and accessibility advocates and people with impairments to exchange information, and allowing developers to experience simulations of being impaired.

App developers who have had the opportunity to experience as directly as possible, first or second-hand, what it means to live with specific impairments, and have been put in touch with the larger community around accessibility, create more effective apps to better the quality of life for everyone. The result not only helps people with major disabilities, but also people with minor or temporary impairments, for example due to ageing or illness.

The format of the workshop will be discussion-based and there will be technical people on hand to answer specific questions related to Android, but there will be different speakers and contributors to reflect the local scene. Plenty of time will be allowed for discussion and networking and refreshments will be provided.

Philip Strain from Ecliptic Labs will be introducing us to the topic and sharing some of his key insights from his research in this area.

Philip Hargrave from ICT KTN will be talking about how ICT KTN helps companies looking to capitalise on this area.

And the highlight of the sessions is that we will also have Accessibility expert, Kath Moonan from Vodafone, explaining how to tackle accessibility in your own app.

Please note that, as an exception to our MoMoBelfast privacy rule, the attendee list will this time be shared with the two supporting organisations ICTKTN and Vodafone.

MoMo Belfast – Sept. 19th – Mobile Showcase Ireland

Our next MoMo Belfast event will be on Monday 19 September 2011 in … Dublin!

This “Showcase Ireland MobileMonday” event is a one-off chance if you’re a professional involved in mobile from Belfast or Dublin, to network, find potential technolgoy or business partners, all for free. This event is indeed sponsored by NOKIA and all main economic development agencies Enterprise Ireland, InterTradeIreland and Invest Northern Ireland.

We’ve invited speakers from Irish tech companies that have made it big internationally in the mobile industry in different areas: Openmind Networks (messaging & beyond), Aepona (mobile cloud), Altobridge (mobile networks in remote locations), TR2 (mobile payments), and a speaker from Nokia will present their developer program and what they intend to do with Microsoft!

We will also give the stage to early stage Irish apps companies (alpha or beta) for a 3-minute pitch session (not for investment, but for your feedback), so you’ll see what’s brewing in kitchens, garages and labs up and down the island to take on the world in 2012.

Due to the scale of the event and your need to network, it will run for a whole afternoon (2-6:30pm), and we have scheduled the agenda around the times of the Enterprise train to make it easier for you to work around the travel times.

Registration is now open, please click here to register.

Our event is in the urban cool Gibson hotel just across from the O2 venue (The Point) and we’ve negotiated a special rate if you want to stay overnight.

In true MoMo fashion, this event will be free of charge, thanks to our sponsors:
