WHAT DO APP MAKERS NEED TO KNOW TO SUCCEED?
Who better to ask than successful app makers themselves?
Renaissance is a three-day conference for iOS app makers happening in San Francisco January 21-23, 2013 that features a fast-paced track of sessions that focuses on success in the app business.
How do I make money in the App Store? Come to Monday's Winning in the App Store session to hear from developers who are doing that including game developers Jessica Kahn of Tapulous and Michael Sanford of flipside5.
How can I successfully run a contract app development business? Come to Tuesday's Apps for Hire session and meet four CEOs running successful app development shops.
How can I keep my company and IP in shape for potential acquisition? Come to Wednesday's Power up your IP session and hear from experienced IP attorney Susan Gibbs, veteran venture investor John Malloy, and Cisco-M&A-chief-turned-angel-investor Dan Scheinman.
How do I keep people interested in my app? Don't miss Designing Engagement with Black Pixel's Jaimee Newberry and Prismatic's Aria Haghighi, who just raised $15M for Prismatic's customized news app.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS
Renaissance uniquely focuses on developer interests because it is uniquely run by developers themselves. We're not an ad network, we're not an incubator, we're not a platform company, we're not investors, we're not a "picks & shovels" service provider, we're just a group of developers who are getting together to help each other get better at the business of apps. Organizers Tim Burks and Bill Dudney are both career software developers with commitment both to apps and to community. Burks has organized the Silicon Valley iOS Developers' Meetup since 2008, and in 2010 and 2011, Dudney worked at Apple as an Application Frameworks Evangelist, where his duties included planning and coaching a large part of the sessions at Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference. Both are actively involved in many individual projects and consult for companies ranging from two-person startups to multibillion-dollar multinationals.
