High-Telecom APPsterdam "Meet the Makers"

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to invite you for the High-Telecom APPsterdam "Meet the Makers".

Wednesday 26th Oct 19:00 - 22:00
villa Vrijenban Nieuwe Plantage 58 Delft.

Under the name High-T(elecom) we are organizing knowledge sessions in the Delft area with the intention to stimulate open-innovation, cooperation and entrepreneurship.
The High T is an EU co-founding project of TNO, Kennisbruggen/Kennisalliantie, YES!Delft and SPING, Wizards of ICT.

Mac and iOS developer Mike Lee, formerly of Apple and Tapulous, recently moved to Amsterdam to create an application development community. Mike Lee believes first of all that Apps are the future of technology, and secondly that Amsterdam and surroundings is the next big creative, entrepreneurial hub since Silicon Valley. And as real interaction between people never beats interaction over the internet (so he says), everyone who wants to be part of this next wave of creative entrepreneurs should come to 'Appsterdam'. SPING has embrased this idea and in the line of the High T, the Grand Café of SPING in Delft has become one of the hangout places of Appsterdam.

We started the first High-Telecom on the subject mobile applications and now we are ready for a follow-up on this subject together with the Appsterdam movement. Therefor one of the YES!Delft entrepreneurs, Lauwerens Metz of Innovattic, has organised this Appsterdam meetup with designers and entrepreneurs in the mobile App business. They will inform you about their apps and the creative processes behind it.

The "Makers" who will be attending are:

Alexander Griekspoor (@mekentosj), Founder & CEO Mekentosj.com — Apps for scientists. Won 2 Apple Design Awards. Alex will be talking about his journey of the last 10 years as Mac software designer, entrepreneur and scientist

Randy J. Hunt (@randyjhunt), creative director Etsy.com — Randy will give a peak behind the screens of the biggest and fastest growing community on the web of buyers and sellers of hand made products. How Etsy gets shaped and tweaked every day by Randy and his team of designers.

Cloud9 (http://c9.io) — This Appsterdam-based company has created a fully-fledged web app development tool suite that runs inside the browser! Yes it's crazy and very hot. If there is one company that is stretching the browser beyond it's limits of app-ness, it's Cloud9.

Tom van der Geer (t.vandergeer@sping.nl), Project Manager — Tom will present the project we do in partnership with KPN regarding the API's for mobile app which KPN offers for developers.
