December 2008 Silicon Valley Mobile Monday

The December Silicon Valley Mobile Monday is going to take place at Yahoo on December 1st:

  • What: December 2008 Mobile Monday (Yahoo! Blueprint)
  • When: December 1st, 2008 7:00pm
  • Where: Yahoo! Sunnyvale, URLs Cafe Building C, 701 First Ave, Sunnyvale CA 94089
  • Who: Anyone interested in mobility
  • Cost: Nothing! (but please sign up on Eventbrite)

Markus gave a great presentation about Blueprint at Mobile 2.0, Enrique from MoMo Austin just published a tutorial focused on it, and Marc Davis has been wanting to show off more of the details at some point. During the “lull” between the holiday breaks things are normally much slower for me at work and I have some time to play with some of the cool stuff I’ve had on the back burner for months. I know a bunch of you are in similar situations. Blueprint is one of those for me, so December should be a great time for a technical overview of building mobile services with Yahoo’s new platform.

Some relavant links for you all:

Thanks to Mario Tapia for setting up the topic and finding us space at Yahoo! He does need an attendee list for security however, so please make sure you sign up at Eventbrite just so that we have a list to hand over. Hope to see you all there!
