Birth of the Rich Mobile Experiences with SVG Series
by Antoine Quint
Monday next week, MobileMonday NY will host the first event of what I hope will be a long-lasting Rich Mobile Experiences with SVG series. I have pointed out before that I think initiatives promoting Mobile SVG to smaller companies and eager individuals are still somewhat lacking. This is what I hope will be a way to spread the word throughout the world about Mobile SVG. The point of this series of events is to go to all the major cities around the world where a significant mobile community is established, and have a lineup of speakers, putting forward locals, that will give concrete examples of how they make use of Mobile SVG for live mobile services and applications, but also highlight the next evolutions of this technology. I want first and foremost for these events to give attendees pragmatic information that they will be able to put to use straight away.
So for our New York event next week on Monday January 29th at the Samsung Experience, for which you have to register for free, we have put together the following great lineup including browser makers (Opera), SVG viewer vendors (BitFlash and Ikivo), authoring tool makers (Hyperion, Ikivo, QUALCOMM), developer tool providers (Sun), mobile services creators (Ikivo, Hyperion, BitFlash and Vodafone) and a major carrier (Vodafone). The goal here is to show attendees the diversity of the Mobile SVG offering, and the full lineup is as follows below. Hope to see some of you in New York next week, there will even be some free authoring licenses to win at the end of the event, courtesy of Ikivo and Hyperion!
