I am a Norwegian-born developer who grew up on the Cayman Islands with a passion for making beautiful, digital things. In 2010 my wife Niqui Merret and I founded jadehopper ltd. — an interactive studio focused on building digital products for mobile and the web.

Over the years I've worked on award winning apps for iOS, strategic proof of concepts and other things we can't talk about for startups and enterprise, including clients as Nickelodeon, Time Inc., BlackBerry and QNX Software Systems and reached the #1 spot on the App Store.


101 Things Every Mobile Developer Should Know

Whatever the reason this session will cover what you need to know when transitioning to developing for mobile devices so you can hit the ground running with few to no broken bones.

We will cover multi-touch, gestures, design conventions, prototyping, tips on making your app likeable and/or lickable and much more.

We will also go over how to avoid common pitfalls and get going with your own project with a light sprinkling of case studies.
