UCL Bite-Sized Lunchtime Lecture 11th May 2012

I am giving a Bite-Sized Lunchtime Lecture at UCL in May.

Everyone is welcome to attend! Admission is free and details are as follows.

Talk title: How to be a successful app developer

Abstract: It pays to be an app developer. Some of the world’s most recent millionaires made their money from mobile apps. Ethan Nicholas made his million from his iShoot app in less than a year. Rovio, the developer of Angry Birds, made a revenue of $100 million in 2011. With hundreds of thousands of apps in these online stores, what strategy should a developer use to be successful? Should they try many different ideas, make many similar apps, improve on their existing apps or just copy the apps of others? To answer these questions, we created AppEco, an agent- based model of mobile app ecosystems, and use it to simulate Apple’s iOS app ecosystem and investigate the effectiveness of different developer strategies. This talk presents our simulation, results, and lessons learnt.

Time: Friday 11th May 2012, 13:10 – 13:55

Place: Mully’s, UCL Lewis’s Building, Gower Street (map)

  1. Thank you for organizing this Lunchtime Lecture,. Almost more then a year on and I’m still applying what I’ve learned from this talk.

  2. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.

    I do not know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you
    are not already 😉 Cheers!

  3. Everything published was actually very logical. However, what about
    this? suppose you were to write a awesome title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog,
    but suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean UCL Bite-Sized Lunchtime Lecture
    11th May 2012 | Soo Ling Lim is a little boring. You might look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write article headlines to get viewers
    to click. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab
    readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your
    posts a little livelier.
