This year, I attended MWC 2014 with 2.5 hats on:
1. Smartnotify.us was being showcased on the Intel booth as we use their XDK to develop the mobile portion of SmartNotify. So I got to experience MWC from an exhibitor’s perspective; something quite unique for a Startup that would, otherwise, not be able to afford a booth (let alone one as big as the Intel’s booth!)
2. As a panelist on gamification for the WipJam part of the expo. I got to share the stage with some awesome people: Suzanne Nguyen from Immersion, Jesse Freeman from Amazon, Alex Bubb from Nokia, and Rod Burns from WIP to keep us in check
2.5 as a Rudebaguette writer, totally undercover as people talked to me without any PR or marketing filter on (it’s fantastic what people say off-line!)
You can read my complete takeaways from MWC, in my RudeBaguette.com article.
