Future of Web Apps First Impressions
Wow. This is big. This is a big room filled with Web developers, entrepreneurs, managers, etc… (helpfully color-coded on their badges). Easily 500 people here. Probably more. All the chairs are filled up and I’m sitting on the floor. I think I forgot how big these things can get, and I forgot how much bigger the general Web community is compared to the mobile community.
Great presentation from last.fm. Big message was: design your service as a platform (open APIs). Allow others to build stuff on top of what you’re doing – that promotes growth. Great sutff.
Due to speak tomorrow on future of mobile web applications… I think this might be the largest audience I’ve spoken in front of (assuming they all show up tomorrow). Even bigger than Fundamentos Web which was already pretty big.
