Connecting The Dots at LaunchAcademy

Rastin Mehr giving a talk at launch academy about building insightful knowledge apps

So this Wednesday I gave a talk about building insightful knowledge apps and Anahita project at the LaunchAcademy in Vancouver. Most of the audience members were from the LighthouseLabs coding school and Startup founders and employees who work from this work space. In this talk I also mentioned a couple of iOS mobile apps that we have developed at rmdStudio for our clients. Here are the slides if you are interested to take a look.

I would like to thank LaunchAcademy, Hans Peter Meyer, and Keith Bao (from Corporate Champions Vancouver) for live tweeting the event for us. You can see some of them here:
