TrySwift conference in Tokyo with Kapabel

TrySwift is a very popular series of conferences for iOS developers. The conferences are held in Tokyo, New York and Bangalore. I attended the conference in Tokyo from March 2. to March 4. 2017. There were also several interesting developer meetups before and after the main conference.

This is the largest developer conference I have been to with over 700 iOS developers from Japan and the rest of the world. iOS is really popular in Japan with over 50% market share. This makes Japan a really interesting market to potentially release Kapabel in.

During the conference I learned a lot from the talks and also got to know many developers. Schools in Japan don’t use iPad as much as they do in Norway, but due to the huge size of the market it still might before releasing Kapabel in Japan in the future.

The latest news when it comes to Kapabel is that we are receiving a lot of positive feedback from teachers when it comes to our newest app, Kapabel Mathematics 1-2. You can read more about this app here.

StartupGrind Europe in London

June 15. I attended StartupGrind Europe in London. I really enjoyed the format of the conference, instead of having lectures and talks almost all of the content was interviews with interesting people in technology.

Kapabel web service

Kapabel is the main project I am currently working on and you can find out all about it at Kapabel.io. It is a web service developed to increase student learning when using iPad in the classroom.
