Mobile Future Forward: Industry Visionaries Shaping the Mobile Industry
Oh September! I know April gets to be the cruelest month, but surely the person who came up with that didn’t organize and attend events for a living. September is the kickoff to the fall event season, and often I’m booked to attend one event when suddenly there’s another excellent event happening at the very same time.
This is (almost) the case on September 10. That is the first (and only) day of Mobile Future Forward in Seattle. The top thought leaders in mobile development will gather to give their insights on where the industry is going. Speakers include Marianne Marck, vice president of Starbucks, Kevin Packingham, senior vice president of Samsung and our very own Renee James, senior vice president and general manager of the Software and Services Group at Intel. Just to name a few.
These are the people who are creating the mobile technology we’ll use for years to come. But! September 11 is the start of Intel Developer Forum, where I’ll be rocking PAC-MAN on Ultrabooks™. Do you see how September is so cruel? Two amazing events at (almost) the same time.
At Mobile Future Forward, Renee James will host a one-on-one session about driving a multidimensional strategy to positively impact the ecosystem. Dave Whalen, vice president and general manager of the Intel Services Division will moderate the panel “Mobile Enterprise and the Cloud,” which promises to be a great discussion. Also, Hank Skorny, vice president and general manager of the Intel Services Division will add his expertise during the panel, “N-Screen Era– Consumer Behavior, Engagement, and Commerce.”
With a lineup like that, no one who is interested in mobile or the future of mobile should miss Mobile Future Forward. If you’re one of the lucky 300 or so who has tickets, could you send me your conference notes? I’ll be on a plane to Intel Developer Forum …
