Mobile World Congress, Day 1

Written by on Monday, February 25th 2013

Here we are, the Mobile World Congress began this morning.

We met a lot of interesting people today!

The team who took the boat yesterday evening from Ajaccio arrived in the late afternoon due to difficult weather conditions. But everyone is here now, and really excited!

Tomorrow, we'll take a little more time to make an entire tour of the event, and prepare more focused blog posts. We'll focus on monetization, as we met a lot of ad networks at MWC, and on new devices.

We'll try to take some more general pictures of the entire event.

To follow us out of this blog, you can find us on Flickr, on Instagram (@goodbarber), on Twitter (@goodbarber) and on our Facebook  page :) 

See you tomorrow !

We are in Barcelona!

Written by on Sunday, February 24th 2013

Here we are! At last, we managed to get to Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress! Not an easy task, due to the bad weather :/

For this trip, we splitted our team in two. Jerome and I took the plane this morning from Ajaccio by Lyon. Sebastien, Laurent, Jim & Mathieu took the boat this evenning to Marseille, and will drive tomorrow morning to BCN.

There was snow this morning in Ajaccio, Corsica, and we were not sure that the plane could take off. The flight has been delayed more than two hours, but eventually everything went fine. We took our connecting flight in Lyon, and, we got to BCN :)

This year, the event sounds awesone, and the new venue, Fira Gran Via, is far bigger than Fira Montjuic where it took place last years.

The GoodBarber booth is awesome too! Enjoy some pictures :)

If you are heading to MWC this year, come to say hello in Hall 5, French Pavillon, Booth 5I100/55.

The Android team is growing

Written by on Monday, February 18th 2013

Native of Quenza, a small village in southern Corsica, I decided to join the GoodBarber Beautiful Team, to be a part of the Android side of the project.
Trained at ENSEA (Cergy) in electronics engineering, I decided to start my career with GoodBarber in order to specialize myself on Google's mobile platform.
For the time being, I'm quickly acquiring the basics of native apps development. In a few days, I will be ready to start working on my first piece of code on GoodBarber for Android. I am eagger to join the team actually working on it. Time has come to create Beautiful Apps for Android too :)
