While I may not currently be in the midst of developing an app, I know that when the times comes, having a network will be critical to my education and execution of a "killer app."

I love Gail's reason for attending the first meeting of the Network of Women Mobile Application Developers!
We have almost 25 who have responded to our invitation to attend the meeting on Monday, March 7, 2011 in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Interest and support have been so strong!
Thanks to the support and sponsorship of Coldwell Banker, Townside REALTORS, First Bank & Trust Company, Hutchison Law Group, and Handshake Media, attendees will be treated to a complimentary reception on March 7.
The first group of 12 to receive training on March 16 will be treated to a complimentary meal thanks to the support and sponsorship of VT KnowledgeWorks.
And thanks to Ryan Hagan, Shierod Russell and Wesley Ferrell – who are volunteering their time to help - we will have on-site technical support during the training.
And I got this in an email from a software expert yesterday: "What can I do to help?"
We welcome more to our first meeting.
