Capital Factory (Located in the Austin Centre)

701 Brazos Street, 16th floor, Austin, TX (map)

Come up to the 16th floor!

We are proud to announce the AMPD' Meetup! That stands for Austin Mobile Professional Developers. Our expanded focus is not just reserved to Android, but covers comprehensive discussions on topics covering iOS, BlackBerry, Windows, Android and beyond.

Our goal is to provide app developers with the strategic and tactical information they need to make their apps and their business better. This includes both technical and general discussions on app development, deployment & growth.

Austin is a hotbed of mobile businesses and AMPD' is your place to learn, share and meet other folks creating the next evolution in computing.

To kick off the new AMPD' we're pleased to announce Marcus Turner of Atomic Axis giving his eye opening talk "The Human App Instrument".

From today’s intersection of health, productivity, and technology emerges the Human App Instrument. Cutting-edge devices and applications allow users to self-track their daily lives like never before. The routine measurement of fitness levels, sleeping patterns, diet, performance, productivity, and countless other metrics combined with seamless analytical interfaces can provide an individual with a comprehensive personal record of their quantifiable self.

The market provides a host of evaluative apps and interfaces. The problem with these apps is that they are disparate. They function and churn data for an individual independent of the other facets of human existence. Sure, an app can tell you how long you slept last night and can even illustrate your sleep cycle in an impressive analytical interface—but can it extrapolate that information to tell you how that data will affect your diet or overall mood throughout the day?

The existing app model is specialized and self-contained. What barriers are preventing the data in these applications from being correlated to draw specific comprehensive patterns for you? In other words, how can we go from the current fragmented and often overly simplistic model into a model that synthesizes that disparate data into a more holistic assessment of your behavior?

RSVP now and get ready for the first installment in the new AMPD' with Marcus Turner! Beer & pizza will be provided. Looking forward to May 8th at our new 6:30pm start time!
