Mobile in Boston


MoMo on the Grand Canal outdoor patio – July 27th

Join Mobile Monday on July 27th for a relaxed summer gathering on the deck of the Grand Canal.  Meet some mobile people.  See some demos.  Enjoy summer.  Cash bar.


Bring your mobile phone if you have something to demo.  We won’t have formal demo stations, but let us know in advance so we can post about it.

Time: 6 to 9 pm

Location: The Grand Canal, Boston, MA (map)

Transportation: Near Haymarket and North Station T stops (Orange line, Green line, and northern Commuter Rail lines)

Register now so we know you’re coming.

Be sure and stop by for a chance to win a free copy of iPhone Developer’s Cookbook by Erica Sadun, courtesy of the Voices That Matter: iPhone Developers Conference.

Hope to see you there.  Note:  We won’t be holding an August event, so the next Mobile Monday will be sometime in September.
