appsworldThe must attend conference for app developers returns to North America starting this Wednesday February 5th. Appsworld, is coming back to San Francisco’s Moscone center for two days of high level insight and discussion around one of the largest growing industries in history, mobile apps. There are literally hundreds of app conferences every year now, but we only recommend a few and Appsworld is one of them.

While the entire Appsworld experience is a must attend we know that some developers are bootstrapping it on a very tight budget. Appsworld knows that too and opens the expo area and developer tracks up to developers for free. You can register for a free exhibition pass here. 

For those who want to attend the full conference including keynotes, panels, lectures, workshops and the exhibit area, you’ll definitely get more than your money’s worth. Speakers this year include Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Google Chrome developer advocate Paul Irish, and one of the most widely read bloggers in 2013, Jay Altschuler. Tommy Palm, the mobile guru at Candy Crush creator, King is also on tap to speak. As are executives from Pinterest, Twitter, Staples, Facebook, Walmart, LinkedIn, LG and many more. You can see a complete speaker lineup here. 

One of the things that makes Appsworld truly unique is that it doesn’t matter what platform you develop on or if you develop on all mobile platforms. Appsworld has a targeted track of developer workshops for all including:

DroidWorld –
Developer World –
Gaming World –
Enterprise World –
Tech World –

And what App conference would be complete without a hackathon. Appsworld is hosting two hackathons with big prizes up for grabs, you can find out more about the hackathons here.
