Retrospective 2011

2011 was another terrific year for akosma software, a year of growth, surprise, learning, teaching, and travel. We met fantastic new people on the road and we would like to thank all of our friends, our customers, the readers of this blog, our followers on Twitter, Facebook, Github, LinkedIn and countless other networks for their support and feedback throughout the year! May all of you have a healthy and happy 2012.

And now let us share with you some highlights of 2012!

Training

akosma software has established in 2011 a solid and successful training business, in the domains of iOS and mobile web applications:

The result of these efforts were an incredible suite of apps created by some of our students, and now available on the App Store:

  • Sudokulus by Pieter Muller, an incredible application that allows us to quickly solve sudoku puzzles!
  • TroisXRien by Vincent Zeller, a very nice app to teach maths to children!

Conferences

2011 was, without any doubt, the year of the conference; not only have we participated in lots of them as speakers, we could also be the host of an incredible mobile track and even co-organized one in Zürich!

  • We started a long and fruitful collaboration with immedia, a leading provider of mobile application development services in South Africa, by providing them with strategy and development consulting services.
  • We extended the swissinfo iPad application into a universal iOS application, featuring an iPhone application too!
  • The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies asked us for help in the definition of the mobile technologies for a humanitarian project, which consisted in an extensive report.
  • We helped the local protestant church, the Eglise évangélique réformée du Canton de Vaud, to create their brand new mobile application, built using Sencha Touch and PhoneGap.
  • We worked with many other customers who have explicitly asked us to remain anonymous, but we thank them for their trust and their business! We are proud and happy to have worked with them.
