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.

Who is Daniel K. Appelquist?

I'm an American Ex-Pat living in London and dealing with the increasing complexities of parenting in the digital world. I am the Open Web Advocate for Telefónica, focusing on the Firefox OS project. I am a founder and co-organizer of the Over the Air hack day series as well as a founder of Mobile Monday London & Mobile 2.0. I'm a former .com CTO and subsequent .com refugee. I like a good burger.

The opinions expressed here are my own, however, and neither Telefónica nor any other party necessarily agrees with them.
