We’re now only days away from the start of our week-long West Coast US trip and things are heating up.
Over four days next week, the BlueVia dream team – that’s Jose Valles, James Parton, Chris Book and Nick Mullen – will meet mobile developers in San Francisco and Seattle to explain our latest API developments and plans. If you’re a mobile developer, they can offer insights into BlueVia’s scale in the markets we’ve already launched and the massive opportunity offered by the Latin American market.
So what’s the plan, and what would developers get from face time with the BlueVia team?
We are sponsoring Mobile Monday Silicon Valley on 29 August. The Bluevia crew will present their thoughts on US developers making the most of commercial opportunities in Latin America and go-to-market strategies for mobile devs. They’ll be joined by speakers from BlueVia partners Joe Hofstader of Microsoft, Kevin Grant of micropayment platform BOKU and Michael Bayle of Amobee.
If you’re a mobile developer, you will have the chance to meet the speakers and shoot them questions and ideas. The BlueVia team will also be giving away 10 tickets for Mobile 2.0, which takes place next Thursday – so if you’re still hoping to make it to that event, why not sign up for Mobile Monday first?
For anyone who didn’t manage to speak to the team on Monday, they will be available at the San Francisco Marriott the following morning. You can book a time on Ohours.
Then they are hotfooting it to the airport for a domestic flight to Seattle, where they are giving a repeat performance at Mobile Monday Seattle (yes, it’s on a Tuesday). It’s a chance for the developers in Seattle to challenge their thinking on doing mobile app business in Mexico and Latin America. As well as BlueVia’s presentation, Microsoft’s Joe Hofstader will be putting on a full Microsoft presentation.
The BlueVia team will then be holed up in the Courtyard Seattle Downtown (it’s the Marriott) on 8th St for any Seattle developers with burning questions (or plans of world domination that require mobile operator APIs…). You can also book these slots at Ohours.
Then on Thursday it’s Mobile 2.0. The theme for the event is leveraging mobile ecosystems, monetizing mobile applications and services and exploring disruptive mobile innovation and business models. That is a very close approximation of our vision at BlueVia, which is why we’ve chosen to be one of the major sponsors of Mobile 2.0. James will share his knowledge of exploiting new monetization models when he leads the workshop on monetization, marketing and analytics. It’s a must-attend session for any developers looking for more ways to monetize mobile apps.
In addition, the BlueVia team will be based on a prominent room near the main event floor for one-to-one sessions with mobile developers. As you might have guessed, you can book slots via Ohours.
Creating new commercial opportunities with developers
We hope we’re going to have the chance to discuss new ideas, creative plans and disruptive business models with the best developers the West Coast has to offer. BlueVia has a number of exciting announcements in the pipeline, so hearing how we can best support developers in the US, particularly those with ambitions to capitalise on growth in Latin America and Mexico, is essential for us. This is your chance to affect the direction of our global API platform.
And if all you want is a BlueVia T-shirt, then make sure you come and see us at one of our events next week, as we’ll have plenty!
