Tom is a great speaker and he gave a nice and light-hearted look at some of their past apps including the quasi-scientific Ghost Detector mobile app. Tom also mentioned that he’s recruiting mobile developers. Thanks also to Andy Budd for saving the day with his Mac, Tom’s developed a rather odd blue-pigment-only screen weirdy.
After the talk we had some announces and a Pitch. Stuart Conway wants a mash-up of Google Maps and elevation information so you can see some gradient info on routes.
For the announces I suggested that later in the year, around the time of the Digital Festival, we could have a larger Â£5 App-like hack/start-up day. Most of our 30ish crowd like the idea which is a great start.
Jobs – as mentioned already Alan is hiring Java developers for Sensible Development, Jane says that Madgex is recruiting and Tom Hume is after a Technical Project Mgr, Senior Designer and Software Developers.
Next event? Tuesday 11th September will be the date for our 6th Five Pound App meet, fingers-crossed we’ll have a talk from Martin on his successful ShareWare projects for Macs.
