Yahoo, in a desperate bid for “who owns the internet” announced its first development conference on Monday.
The event will be called Mobile Developer Conference, and will happen for one day only on February 19, in San Francisco, California.
Since Marissa Mayer took over CEO in 2012, the tech giant has made some radical changes. First, the company now markets itself as “mobile-first”, which isn’t actually so radically. According to Statista, mobile use has increased 115% in 2013 from 2012. Yahoo also bought out many mobile tools and apps, as well as the mobile analytics firm Flurry, earlier this year, acquired for an estimated $200 million.
The conference will include speakers developers and Yahoo employees, as well as Flurry’s Simon Khalaf as the keynote who will give a “State of Mobile” address. There will be sessions and tutorials for developers to participate. Developers can request an invitation on Yahoo’s Tumblr.
