Our conference has actually reached a new level. We are going to have a launch of a new product which is
very much related to the mobile world and focused on developers.
Oguz Bastemur from Nubisa is going to launch their multi-threaded Node.js platform.
Initially they developed it for their own use when they reached limits of Node.js and the need for multi-threading
had become apparent.
Mobile Central Europe is proud to announce another speaker for the conference.
Cheng Luo has spent a long time working on various aspects of mobile technology
and is also a brilliant speaker. He worked extensively at Samsung and will be covering
the same subject as Peter Heinrich who unfortunately cannot make it.
Cheng is looking forward to the event and we are happy to add him to our list of speakers.
We are working hard under the radar right now to give you the best experience for our conference, in the meantime
however we would like to draw your attention to the greatest treasure we have at our conference - our speakers.
We have introduced a few subtle changes in the presentation of our agenda - so you can explore
the agenda, see the speaker details and presentation details right from the main agenda page.
See it yourself.
You will see that we have some really good names and great topics, and that you will be able to learn a lot
about modern approach to iOS, Android, mobile programming as well as UI/UX approach. Things that you always wanted to
ask but were afraid to do so or had no-one around to give you good answers.
Our speakers are really experienced practictioners who have accomplished a lot already in their career but the common
theme amongst them is that they learn continuously - and by telling about their experiences, they help others to
learn as well. No doubt they will also have a great opportunity to learn new things from all of you so this is a
Pretty much all speakers will also be present at the hackathon the day before the conference
and you will not only be able to talk and network with them, but also work with them together as a team. This is
the best way to get to know each other and help to build meaningful relationships.
We have officially closed the speaker’s list with the last confirmed speaker - Rob Rusher.
Rob is our special guest - he will not only talk about and will show Google Glass. Rob has also managed to get
a few Google Glasses for our hungry hackers to get their teeth into (we hope not literally).
Speaking of the Jitter hackathon
we’re lining up so many cool gadgets that Bruce Wayne would be jealous
(you will hear more about it soon but we have pretty exciting announcements up our sleeves!).
The Agenda is now more or less complete - we expect only some minor clarifications,
but you can now explore the details of who will be speaking, what will be the subject and understand
the level of the talk. There are plenty of sessions for just about anyone who does or would like
to do mobile development - be it iOS, Android, UI/UX or just general mobile development subject.
We have really impressive list of speakers. When we started the call for speakers we did not know that we will host
people from 9 different European countries and 6 different US states. Now we also know that the speakers
are coming from 20 different cities (!).
So look, you’d be hard pressed to find a better, more diverse group of mobile experts speaking under one roof -
what on earth are you waiting for - get yourself over to Warsaw for January and be a part of mobile history!
Michele Capra is the last-but-one speaker announced.
We have a very interesting subject of porting Android apps
to Windows Phone - this should appeal to everyone who would like to take advantage of specific in Polish market -
one of the very few where Windows Phone outsells iPhone!
We are about to finish the announcements. We are discussing with the last speaker!
We are happy to announce two more speakers at our conference.
This time it’s John Ellenich, Apple-awarded
Mobile UI designer from Jive from San Francisco and
Gal Cerf - VP of Engineering of uTest from Israel.
John will talk about designing applications for Enterprise, and Gal will tell about his experiences from getting from
server side quality to Android quality.
We are getting to the end of confirming the last speakers, and we hope we will be able to confirm the remaining
5 speakers within the next few days.
Already we are filling the titles and subjects of the presentations - take a look at our slightly redesigned web page.
It’s a bit more - ehm - mobile now, we made sure it’s really great also at smaller screens,
and it should be a bit better than it used to be.
Just on time for the Mobilization.pl conference we have published
Mobile Central Europe is partnering with Mobilization.pl to
the extent that some of our organizers are speaking at it and this is a great opportunity for
everyone to find out more about MCE Conference.
You will find our organizers wearing special Mobilization-ready Mobile Central Europe
T-shirts so grab them and speak to them to ask any questions you might have.
At the same time we announce two new speakers: Jon Reid - well known author of QualityCoding iOS blog and
Peter Heinrich - Amazon’s Technical Evangelist. You can read more about all our speakers and soon about their
presentations at our new, separate Speakers page.
More speakers will be confirmed and announced within the next few days so expect the agenda to fill-up more over
the weekend and on Monday!
There were some people asking, whether we have more non-iOS speakers. And the answer is simple - yes we will have
the coverage of all major mobile platforms, as well as some general topics that should appeal to
all developers. Watch out for the initial agenda coming soon!
Just for now: let us announce two new speakers who have Android under their belt:

We welcome Dave Wiskus as our latest speaker! Dave is interaction

which are the optimizers and obfuscators used in Android. If you want to learn how you should be optimizing your
android apps and why it is so important - Eric is your man!
We welcome Tom Maes amongst our speakers! It’s been a tough choice we
are facing, to choose amongst the speakers, but certainly many people will find Tom’s experience a valuable
contribution to our conference’s content.
We got to almost half of the speakers to our conference. We have already more than 20 potential speakers who
are waiting for the confirmation, so it’s about the time to announce some timing and schedule for the nearby events.
So here are a few dates that we want to communicate:
The call for speakers is going to be closed on Friday, October 18th. This is the time when our internal committee
will get heads down and discuss and choose the best speakers for you. We will announce few more speakers before that

There are few keywords that might get you interested: hardware, Bluetooth LE and a bit of hands-on … More info soon!

great speakers of ours: that’s the time you will be able to become an early participant!
Friday, October 25th - we are going to announce the full list of speakers with detailed agenda!
Good speakers don’t grow on trees - or so I’m told. But even so we’re very happy to
announce that our speaker line up just grew by 4!

So it’s exciting times for us with the momentum building, tension raising and our sedative
supplements running low. I never thought I’d say it, but I can’t wait for Winter!
Even more top speakers will be announced in the coming days and weeks so keep your eyes peeled for further information.
We’re very excited - not just because of the inordinate amount of caffeine based products consumed -
but also because our highly trained team of our crew are putting together
the final missing parts to the first ever [Mobile Central Europe Conference] (http://mobilecentraleurope.com “Mobile Central Europe Conference”).
Our event has grown out of [Mobile Warsaw] (http://mobile-warsaw.pl “Mobile Warsaw”) where we saw a large pool
of talented engineers attending every month.
So we thought to ourselves - let’s share this with the rest of region and world.
Everyone likes a chance to show off, right?
So should you also be excited? Well yes… and here’s why!
Attendance: we’re expecting over 400 attendees
Topic: mobile mobile mobile
Date: 11th January - get to feel what real cold is like
