2012 Resolution #3: Get Connected to Tech, Mobile, and Mobile Ministry Events

2012 calendar from Just Calendar

The information in this post can now be found on the #mobmin Event Calendar

Being that it is the beginning of the year, and the trade show/conference run for 2012 has already begun with CES, it’s a good time to look at a few lists of events and doings happening in an around mobile this year.

The first list of events comes to us from Mobile Advance. They have compiled a Google Doc listing events of interest to those looking at mobile ministry-oriented events in 2012.

An overlapping, but more mobile industry-wide listing of events is constantly updated and published over at WIP Connector. These events range from large conferences, to workshops, to regional developer/marketing events.

Other event listings, such as the ones at Camerjam, Microsoft, and GSMA are updated frequently with various workshops which can be useful for connecting with others in mobile.

If you are looking for local happenings, I would recommend checking out sites such as Upcoming and Meetup as they tend to have smaller, locally focused events which might also be useful for activities around mobile and mobile ministry. Digital Disciples and the Church IT Roundtable are other connection points for locally relevant tech with ministry leanings.

Feel free to add your events to any of the calendars noted, or to this post. While 2012 looks like a crazy busy year on the conference side of things, it also seems to be a number of needed connection points. Looking forward to seeing you at some of these.
