Summary and slides: Nokia Qt Training powered by MobileMonday Baltics in Riga

It was a very pleasant two days last week in Riga. I hope you all enjoyed that as much as we did organizing it.

We had more than 100 participants what was a pleasant surprise about the interest and relevance of the event.

It was great to see Estonian, Latvian, and Lithuanian developers side by side coding and hacking on mobile apps. Thank you all for attending and making it such a success.

In the evening of 8th we also had a MoMo Baltics event where we had one presenter from each of the three Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) and also presenters from the fourth Baltic state (Finland). We also had Biometry from Switzerland presenting to add some foreign flavor to the mix.

The slides:

Juris Kaza from Latvia, did not have slides (as usual).

And Werner Blessing from Switzerland talked about the future of biometric authentication on mobile:
