No Mobilism 2014

Permalink | in Mobilism

Back in April I reported that ticket sales for our Mobilism conference weren’t going too well, and that Mobilism 2013 might be the last one ever. I also promised an update in September.

Well, it’s September and here’s the update: there will be no Mobilism 2014.

Mobilism last call

Permalink | in Mobilism

On 16th and 17th of May we will organise the third edition of Mobilism, the mobile web conference.

We have one speaker change: unfortunately Thomas Fuchs was not able to make it. We have found Remy Sharp willing to take over the slot and the topic: JavaScript frameworks in an increasingly mobile (and thus memory- and processor-challenged) world.

Mobilism early bird ending

Permalink | in Mobilism

If you want to come to Mobilism 2012, 10th and 11th of May in Amsterdam, it’s best to buy your ticket before Saturday. Early bird prices, which knock off €100 of the ticket price, ends with the outgoing year, and why should you pay more than necessary?

Mobilism 2011 was a blast; see also the videos. We’re set to repeat and extend this success in May. with seven world-class speakers, including Ethan Marcotte, Jeremy Keith, Horace Dediu, and Jason Grigsby, who’ll show you how the mobile web works and how you should adapt to it as a web designer or developer. What’s not to like? And even more speakers will be announced later.

Mobilism Call for Papers

Permalink | in Mobilism

Mobilism 2012 will take place on 10th and 11th of May in Amsterdam. The Main Track, for which we are inviting thought leaders from both the web development and the mobilist community, is filling up nicely (announcements pending). Watch Bryan Rieger's video from last year to get an idea what the Main Track will look like.

However, next year we'll also feature a Fast Track for which we've issued a Call for Papers. If you're interested in a 30-minute session to entertain and enlighten our audience about one aspect of the mobile web, submit a paper. The Call for Papers closes on 16th of December, so you still have time.

We don't yet have a specific number of Fast Track presentations in mind; that depends on the quality of the proposals. If we get only two good proposals, there will be only two Fast Track presentations; if we get many more we could accomodate up to ten or so.

Anyway, let us know what you'd like to speak about, send us a link to a video, and we'll see what we can do.

And remember: if you just want a free ticket, track us on Lanyrd.

Awesome conference was awesome

Permalink | in Mobilism

Incredible! Mobilism 2011 was more than two weeks ago, but it still feels like yesterday. It took me this long to recuperate to the point where I can blog about it. So let’s blog! And let’s watch Stephen Hay’s session while we’re doing it.

Mobilism was a blast; just ask the speakers and the attendees. The worst thing that happened is that the wifi didn’t work for the first hour; it worked fine for the remainder of the conference. If you want specific details on the type, size, and texture of the Mobilism blast, see our coverage page.

Steve Souders joins Mobilism

A month ago Steve Souders announced he was going to shift his focus to mobile. That’s good news, because mobile peformance is pretty much a terra incognita, and we badly need more information.

Mobilism 2011 — going fast

Permalink | in Mobilism

Ticket sales for Mobilism 2011 continues to exceed our expectations. The 50 early-bird tickets we released initially are now all but sold.

Since it’s going so well, we decided to release 25 extra early-bird tickets as of right now. So if you want an early-bird ticket that saves you €140 on a mobile web conference with John Resig, Jared Spool, Jeremy Keith, Dion Almaer and Ben Galbraith, and several other top-notch speakers, you shouldn’t wait too long.

When these last tickets are sold out, they will be really sold out. We will not release even more early-bird tickets.

Oh, and if you’re in the US rather than Europe, check out the Breaking Development conference, which is also focused on the mobile web. I’ll speak there, as will tons of other mobile speakers.

See you in May.

Mobilism 2011 progress

Permalink | in Mobilism

A quick Mobilism update before we enter the long dark Christmas time of the soul.

Mobilism 2011 takes place in Amsterdam on 12th and 13th of May. We opened ticket sale eight days ago, and already we found 27 attendees. Not bad for eight days just before the Christmas break.

Anyway, the offshoot is that if you want an early-bird ticket that saves you €140 on a mobile web conference with John Resig, Jared Spool, Jeremy Keith, Dion Almaer and Ben Galbraith, and several other top-notch speakers, you shouldn’t wait too long. If the 23 remaining early-bird tickets sell out, they’re ... well ... sold out. I even wonder if they’re going to last through the last few days of 2010.

See you in May.

Mobile web conferences: Mobilism and Breaking Development

The mobile web is becoming more and more interesting to web designers and developers. After all, it won’t be that long until the average client will insist on mobile browser compatibility for every site in addition to the usual desktop browser compatibility.

But how do you make your website mobile-compliant? I’ve been working on this problem for close to two years now, but it’s not an easy question to answer.

Mobilism, Amsterdam, 12th and 13th of May

So I joined forces with Krijn Hoetmer and Stephen Hay to organise Mobilism, a mobile web design and development conference which will be held on 12th and 13th of May in Amsterdam.
