Mobile App Peer Panel: How to build a mobile app for your startup

March 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

We’ve assembled this panel to give you a chance to meet and talk to your peers from the startup and research world who have already completed the journey of building a mobile app. They will share their experience, challenges, successes and advice.

  • What did it cost to develop their app?
  • How long did it take?
  • How did they find experienced help?
  • What about backend services and infrastructure costs?
  • What platforms did they choose to target and why?
  • And more…

This is your chance to meet app developers who started out just like you: as entrepreneurs or researchers who had a great app idea but who were only just beginning to master the process of mobile app development. The event will be hosted by Mike Spears, iOS and Android mobile app developer for UofT, at the MADLab @ Gerstein Library.

Samuel is a second year student, studying Physics and Computer Science at the University of Toronto. This summer, he has worked at SickKids developing an app for the International Otology Outcome Group. Since working on this project, he has developed a strong interest in mobile app development.

The IOOG Mobile App provides an accessible and user-friendly way to import patient information into a REDCap database. The application uses an institution-specific REDCap token and API url to read and write to the database. The goal of the project was to create a standardized method to collect data for otology research.
