Developers, mark your calendars: Yahoo is hosting its first mobile conference 9 February 2015 in San Francisco. Announced on its blog site this past Monday, Yahoo's description of the event focuses on how mobile has changed the technological landscape and how developers can capitalize on mobile's importance:
Today, Americans spend more time on their smartphones than watching TV- making the mobile experience, and the job of mobile developers, more important than ever. Join us as we announce a suite of tools that will help mobile developers better understand their users and improve, grow and monetize their apps.
Speakers include members of Yahoo's team, developers, and Yahoo's VP of Flurry products. Earlier this year, Yahoo acquired the mobile analytics firm, which has worked with companies from American Idol to Pinterest and Snapchat. Teaming up with Flurry has been one of Yahoo's biggest steps towards a shift in focus towards mobile, and another chapter in Yahoo's rebranding.
A spokesperson for Yahoo stated:
"Yahoo is renewing its focus on mobile app developers with this one-day event that will provide them with insights, guidance and solutions to navigate today’s crowded app market. At the conference, Yahoo will announce and demo a new suite of products to help developers better understand their users and improve, grow and monetize their apps. Simon Khalaf, VP of Flurry products, will be featured, giving his State of Mobile address. The agenda will also include breakout sessions on different key topics, challenges and products for developers."
