Last Saturday and the Saturday before, Vietnam held its third ever Mobile Day in the country to throngs of people. All told, over 2,500 people attended the events with 1,500 in Hanoi and 1,000 in Saigon. To say the least, there’s a big buzz for mobile in Vietnam and the industry is only going to get more crowded. Some of the presentations were pretty cool, so I’ll give you a quick taste of a few that caught my eye.
Presentations covered some very key concerns for mobile developers in Vietnam, like memory management for Android applications; four secrets to success for app monetization; building an online community and getting to the top of the App Store and Play Store; launching a mobile game in just three months; the issue of mobile payments. We’ll embed the slideshows of three of the many informative presentations here. You can click on the links below for more.
