Last Tuesday (December 13th, 2011) marked the occasion of the 2nd ever Mobeers event.


“What is Mobeers?” you ask? It’s quite simple – take a bunch of like minded, talented mobile/web developers add some homegrown/local beer and toss them in a mixing pot. Turn the handle as many times as you’d like, the result is creative discussions ranging from highly technical to highly funny. You take away what you put in.

The event was generously sponsored by KikCommunitech Apps FactoryRIM/BlackBerry,CuteGecko and yours truely – Vidyard!

We put together some videos including a brief intro from the founder of TinyHippos (acquired by RIM) and MoBeers, Dan Silvestru. We’ve also included the full version of each talk.
