Topic: How I became a Millionaire writing apps.
NOTE: New location - Tampa Microsoft Office
Abstract: We have a very special and unique Tampa Windows Phone User Group (Tampa WPUG) meeting planned being hosted Microssoft, on May 21 from 6-8 (note: new location, we will not be at FirstWave). The speaker is James Vertisan. He has the #1 app for the windows phone (SHOTLY) and it’s also in the apple store. He’s become that entrepreneur that many app developers strive to be. He’s become a millionaire, and works between Tampa and Silicon Valley. He has mastered app development. His story is incredible and he’s very passionate about entrepreneurs in Tampa. He will discuss how to turn an app into a company, plus how to create a viable business model and raise capital.
Prizes and Food: As if the speaker alone was not enough to attend this, we have several sponsors and incredible prizes for this FREE event. James, himself, will be bringing a Microsoft Surface to raffle off. With a crowd of over 25, a second will be offered up. He also has other goodies like Windows Phones. Bill Reiss will be providing some swag also, as the new Nokia Developer Ambassador in the Southeast including giving away a 920 and some 800s along with some other stuff.. Tampa WPUG leader, Russ Fustino, has several O’Reilly books to give away, as well as a ComponentOne Ultimate Suite valued at over $2000, including the largest collection of tools for Windows 8 in the world, as well as Windows Phone 8 controls and Wijmo for HTML5 and jQuery Development. It should be one heck of a night. Food and soda will be supplied by Vaco and Nokia.
Special thanks go out to Sylvia Martinez for making the connection thru the Tampa Bay Technology Forum.
