Back in town

Hi there ! My name is Méryl and I just joined the GoodBarber’s team. Graduated from an Advertising and Communication school in Paris named ISCOM, I got a job at Kassius’s agency (WPP group) after my final internship. I was Digital Project Manager in this agency during one year and a half. After this job, I decided to realise my dream and go to the american west coast to learn english, discover California and see the Silicon Valley ;)

MWC - Focus on Ad Networks

I spent much of my time during the MWC to discuss with Ad Networks, with the intention to improve GoodBarber's ads features.   My feeling is that most of these services are meta Ad Networks. They work with many Ad Servers and through their algorithms, they take care to provide maximum gain to their customers.   I can quote Smaato , InMobi , Adfonic and the very friendly people of Ad4Screen as services that have caught my attention.   Our Holy Grail is the generic implementation of an Ad Server in GoodBarber, this trend is perfect for us :-) Implementing the SDK of one of the services mentioned above allows GoodBarber to be compliant with all the ad servers managed by this service.   I also discovered AirPush , a mobile Ad Network focused only on Android which has the ability to send ads by Push. I found it quite original.   A word for a service that deserves a mention: going around these Ad Networks, I stumbled upon Crittercism , a bug tracker that really attracted me. We will soon use this tool, allowing us to stay aware of the stability of our applications and constantly improve their quality :-)

Few steps in the Hall 3 of Mobile World Congress

Early in the morning, it was time for me to go to hang around in the Hall 3, a hall in which manufacturers like Samsung, LG or Nokia have great presence. You may also find mobile actors like IBM, or T-mobile, or others that you won't necessary think about, like Ford. The first one when you go down to that hall is Samsung, you really can't miss it, it's a really huge booth ! To deal with the desappointment generated by the non-official release of the Galaxy S4 (and yes it was really disappointing for us), Samsung puts a strong focus on their new tablet :  the Galaxy Note 8.0, presented at the MWC. The other highlight by Samsung was the Samsung Home Sync, a box that allows to share content between all Samsung devices authorized in the area.  Not so much devices news, this year is the year of Cloud ! It is the master key !

Photo safari in the MWC '13 jungle

Today I left the GoodBarber booth to visit others halls of the MWC. It's so large... Just spent 2 hours to visit 1 and a half hall ! What did I see? Mobile phones (of course), tablets, TVs, presentations, docking stations, beautiful hostesses, things I don't care, and many other things... Oh... I also finally saw a 3D printer in the Nokia booth used to make phone covers. Great. At the end I took a look at the Sony booth. It was my favorite one (I always had a soft spot for this brand...). Stop speaking. Let's show the photos.

Mobile World Congress, Day 2

Very busy day 2 at Mobile World Congress. Day 2 and day 3 are said to be the most intense of the event ... and, well, this is true. We met a lot of people today : VCs, potential partners, complementary services and of course, leads :) Not so much time to give you a feedback of what's hot in MWC2013, but we'll try tomorrow.

Mobile World Congress, Day 1

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!

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

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 :)

Third day at Le Radio, the On'R award is ours!

Yesterday, we had the suprise to discover that we was "nominés" for the On'R awards, in the "Innovative Service" category.   We won it this morning !   We would like to thank very much Philippe Chapot , Frédéric Brulhatour and the On'R awards' jury at Le Radio show . It's a great encouragement.   We came to this show to discover the radio world, and to imagine new features for GoodBarber.   We have now a big, big to-do list, and you will soon hear about it :)

Second day at LeRadio in Paris

Since this morning, we have met a lot of people. Each time, they give us great ideas to improve GoodBarber. If it's true that we are not experts of the radio ecosystem, there are great chance that will become killers and the end of Le Radio! Just one evidence: we are "nominé" for the On'R awards.  Here are some pictures of Le Radio :)

GoodBarber live from Web'12

Announced by Jerome in his previous note, GoodBarber is almost ready to release its version 2. So what's best to announce and introduce it than participating in the essential annual meeting for companies and start-up of the web, Web '12. For those who do not know this event, Web'12 is three days of conference, demonstrations and meetings with giants such as Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, Google, ect. It's also where tomorrow's Internet is imagined. You understand that it is a very important event that we absolutely wanted to be part of.
