Today I ventured into the City to see the latest adventures in mobile apps for developers and gamers, at the appsworld 2014. Besides the venue, ExCeL – which I really enjoyed for the vast space and airiness – I found the vibes pretty energetic and friendly ๐Ÿ™‚

The night before the event, I’d listed some of the exhibitor stands of interest to me (that is, mobile development platforms using workflow-based builders), and I’d recently attended an Intalio BPMS webinar to whet the appetite (another product in this area, although sadly they have no stand at the show this year).

Usually, these events can be a good opportunity to test-drive the tools and take some demos away if you’re lucky! But to my disappointment, three out of the four stands I’d targeted from the online Exhibitor listing didn’t show up on the day :-/

But I’m not one to let such things spoil my mood, so I had a quick rethink over a strong espresso!ย  So instead,ย  I enjoyed the Android sections, the mobile pay apps (quite relevant for a future project I have…) and the ‘wearables’.

I later sipped another coffee whilst watching some crazy golf and shared a table with three students next to Droid World. A super giant inflatable Android dangled above ours heads. Rather cute I thought – shame I couldn’t take that home ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn’t bother to venture into the ‘Future Decoded’ expo next door;ย  this was something about shaping business in the 21st century, but all the logos were Microsoft Cloud and HP ๐Ÿ˜‰

I like to think variety is the spice of life, which is why appsworld was much more appealing to me!

And there were so many crazy brand names and start-up businesses, all destined to make our smartphones more fun as we take our daily commutes or sleep in onย  Sunday mornings!

And if you read this article at the time of publishing, 04:00, it’s not too late to visit the show. You can still go today ๐Ÿ™‚
