About this event


We're back at Yahoo this month, and looking forward to hearing a few great talks from some amazing minds in mobile growth.

We'll kick the evening off with the usual pizza, beer, and check-in time, then take a deep dive into 3 mobile growth topics. We'll hear from Touch of Modern Growth Hacker Wen Shaw about strategies for push notification, and Branch Co-Founder Mada Seghete will talk about making your app go viral. We'll round the evening out with some Q&A from the audience, and then break for some social time where we can chat about all the cool things we just learned.

The People & The Talks

Wen Shaw, Growth Hacker @ Touch of Modern 
Push Notification Strategies 
Push notifications are all about providing contextual information at the right time and tracking the metrics in the right way. Wen will talk about the experiments they've run at Touch of Modern and demonstrate the benefits of having the in-house push notification system.

App Virality – What Drives It and How You Can Set up Your App for Success
