From Idea To App Store

In late September, BR approached us about creating a mobile app that would add impact to our Compute Midwest conference.

Since they had recently hired a graduate from The Disruption Institute, we thought it would be a great opportunity make a collaborative splash, armed with the skills of:

  • Andrew Rangel (iOS developer / Graduate, The Disruption Institute)
  • Mike Berlin (Technical Architect, BR / Graduate, The Disruption Institute)
  • Ryan Glendening (Digital Creative Director, BR)
  • Matt Bowne (Creative Director/Copywriter, BR)
  • Mark Schuh (VP of Technology, BR)
