Amazon Appstore Developer Summit 2016

Topics covered at #AmazonAppSummit

Tuesday, 4th October in London

15 experts spoke.


This Summit has been designed to provide you, the developer, with lesson learned, unique insights and tools plus, to showcase new opportunities and future methodologies into how you can best connect with customers. The programme’s based on hard facts and experience gained, not only by Amazon Appstore but also AWS; Amazon Lab126 and guest speakers from innovative companies such as Just Eat. In addition, you’ll be able to benefit from gaining insight on future trends and get first hand knowledge of our development plans.

Join us for talks and hands-on workshops, delivered by developers from start-ups who are disrupting the status quo, to established consumer brands who are at the forefront of innovation in their market segments. You’ll leave this day better equipped to connect with your current and future customers - leaving you more time to focus on developing that killer app.

At the event, Amazon's technical evangelists will also be on hand to provide support, answer your questions, and help you troubleshoot any issues. We'll also have plenty of devices for you to play with and for testing - including the Amazon Echo.

After Party
