I gave a presentation at CocoaSlopes 2013 in Ogden Utah this weekend. It was extremely well received by a wonderful crowd. I thought I’d share the slides with everyone:
The few complaints I received was that it was depressing. My guess is that this came from people who haven’t experienced the App Store yet, those who haven’t had their bubble burst by the hard realities of the Store.
Personally I thought the presentation was hopeful albeit realistic. There is opportunity there for all of us if we just choose to think differently about the problem at hand.
In the early days of the Internet you could build almost anything and make it. Then reality hit with the stock market crash and things had to change. We are at that inflection point now for mobile as well.
I hope I get the chance to give this presentation again. It was a ton of fun to give, albeit somewhat grueling to create.
All links in the lower right corner give credit to the material source if there was any. In addition I added a slide at the end with credit links to all the images, which I found with Google image search.
