Yahoo Kicks-off Monthly Mobile Developer Meetups in San Francisco

Yodel Meetups Provide a New Forum for Mobile Developers

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Today Yahoo (NASDAQ: YHOO) announced a new local initiative to engage mobile developers through monthly meetups called Yodel Meetups. Starting March 26, Yodel Meetups will be held once a month in Yahoo’s San Francisco office.

Yodel Meetups are an opportunity for mobile developers to get together to learn about and discuss issues important to them with other innovators in the app community, along with Yahoo and Flurry engineers. Yahoo will provide a forum for topics relevant to all app developers such as UX, design, growth and monetization and more specialized topics such as developing for Apple Watch or digging into the latest open source database tools.

The first Yodel Meetup will be held in partnership with Branch.io on March 26 at 6:30 p.m. in Yahoo’s San Francisco office, where developers will hear from Flipboard, Groupon, Zynga and App In The Air about growth hacking - easy organic strategies for user acquisition, retention and engagement.

“Our Mobile Developer Conference in February was a huge success, and we met so many developers who wanted more opportunities to meet with peers and keep the conversation going about new tools and how the mobile space is changing,” explained Jarah Euston, VP Analytics and Marketing at Flurry from Yahoo.

Yodel Meetups are launching in San Francisco, but will be expanding to other cities around the country, including New York City, later this year.
