‘$30 apps – living the life of a mac indie’ (6th £5 App)

Martin did a great talk last night on his Mac shareware.  He developed a sync program (MySync) which was acquired by a reseller and now he is working on a multi-function iSight utility.  Martin suggested that this route is just as lucrative for him as being in a bank-consultancy role in London.

After Martin finished Paul Silver mentioned that for November’s Digital Festival he is planning a ‘hackday’.  Details to come.

John and I also want to hold a ‘£5 App Day’ in the Festival towards the end of November.  We will probably include an SEO WorkShop, a Marketing WorkShop, possibly a Sales WorkShop and some deconstructions of boot-strapped local tech companies.  We want to look ‘back then, to now, and where next?’.

Vicky mentioned that Madgex are recruiting – full details are up on the WiredSussex Jobs Page.  The jobs include a UI Experience consultant, C# programmer, Web designer and Office manager.

Our 7th event will probably be  led by Jeremy Keith talking about a community he has built over a number of years.  Details will follow on the five pound app site.
