MoMo Chicago – June 18th – Mobile Commerce

Mobile Commerce, also known as M-Commerce or mCommerce, is the ability to conduct commerce using a mobile device, such as a mobile phone, a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), a smartphone, or other emerging mobile equipment.

Mobile commerce was born in 1997 when the first two mobile-phone enabled Coca Cola vending machines were installed in the Helsinki area in Finland. The machines accepted payment via SMS text messages. The first mobile phone-based banking service was launched in 1997 by Merita Bank of Finland, also using SMS.

This month we are brining you a preview of CocoaConf with Eric’s talk on testing iOS applications. We will also be giving a lucky person a FREE CONFERENCE PASS.

Testing your applications is important! Writing good tests is just as important! This talk will be divided into two main parts. The first part will cover exactly what goes into a good test. The second part will cover the basics of two testing frameworks, OCDSpec and Objective C Slim. Objective C Slim is an acceptance testing framework, and for those of you familiar with Ruby and Rails, OCDSpec is a unit testing framework with syntax inspired by Jasmine and RSpec. At the end of this talk, you should have no problem testing all of your future iOS applications.

MoMo Chicago – Sept. 26th – Find the Right Mobile Approach

How to innovate in a disruptive mobile market from an incumbent Ecommerce position: lessons for both startups and established enterprises.

Orbitz first launched a mobile site in the Spring of 2007 and continued the next few years focusing on providing timely and helpful information for travelers. Fast-forward to 2010, it brought the ability to book travel (flights, hotels, and car rentals) through its mobile website and followed up with launches of apps for iPhone/Android later that year, as well as an app for iPad in July 2011. It also launched similar offerings globally under different brands. Throughout this time, the company has dealt with issues surrounding how to successfully tap the opportunity of this emerging growth channel while maintaining a competitive footing in its current business: online travel.

Do you have questions on whether to execute with in-house development resources or outsourcing partners? How to find/keep mobile talent as well as how to organize them to develop and launch new products? How to build features that span online and mobile channels? How to square a mobile channel within an online brand? Using his 5+ years of experience at Orbitz, Chris Brown, VP of Product Strategy will discuss the strategies and tactics that large, consumer-facing Ecommerce enterprises can take in order to craft and deliver successful mobile websites and applications.
