Talking App Development at Silicon Valley Apps for Kids

I had the pleasure of giving a talk about our latest application, Spooky Playtime, at the Silicon Valley Apps for Kids meetup this past Monday night. Special thanks to Joshua Garrett of Creativity Incorporated for hosting this event. And thanks to everyone in the audience for your attention, despite it being the last night of the World Series.

It was great to get some valuable feedback about our game and to preview a little of what we’re working on for our next title.

This meetup is always well-attended, and the room is filled with valuable talent.

There were a number of other great presentations this week, from Lorraine Akemann of Moms with Apps, Jacob Klein, one of the creators of Motion Math, Veda Guess, author of the Android app Multiple Madness, Lenny Greenberg, showing off his very impressive TapToTalk software, and more.

If you happen to live in the Bay Area, and you are interested in applications written for children, I highly recommend this group. It’s a great way to network with others who are trying to break into the apps business. Engineers, creative designers, musicians, marketers, app reviewers—even just people with great ideas looking for people who can implement them—the group has a mix of all of the above. It’s good fun, and it’s good business.

You can find out more about the group here.

And if you aren’t in the Bay Area, you may want to find out if there are similar meetup groups where you live. It’s a great way to network and share ideas.

    Joe, it was fun to watch you demo your Spooky Playtime – partly because the app is nice and playful and partly because you are a good speaker. Good luck with the app, or the next one:)
