Nov 3rd @ The Hub Sydney

Ahhh Summer is finally here! For students a time of study, exams and longing for the beach. For the rest of us, perhaps a time for a spontaneous mobile purchase of music, movie tickets, and maybe even flights or a new set of threads? (Sorry students!)

So inspired, for Mobile Monday Sydney November we have a fascinating dual-track event for you to be held at The Hub Sydney (101 William St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010), brought to you by Elance and Odesk.

First up, M-Learning

PointedQ has been used at live sessions including Mumbrella, ViVID, Agile Australia, TEDx Ultimo etc, and are also starting to be used in online training and campaigns.
