This deck is part 3 of a series of slideshares in my attempt to make some sense of it. Presented at Mobile Monday (Calgary), This 2017 version focuses on the journey of an entrepreneur, the state of mobile development today, where are we at (and going) and the journey of pivoting a young startup as iPhone and Android stunned the mobile world in Fall 2008. Presented at Mobile Monday Calgary #30, it also includes some advice for entrants in the technology field… and lastly it covers some resources that are available; developers networks, public funding and grants, Mobile Monday global. Includes:

  1. The Magic Of Hope
  2. The Reality Of Revenue
  3. The Winds Of Change
  4. The Power Of People
