We’re pleased to announce Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak and Electronic Arts Founder Trip Hawkins as headline speakers for this year’s Apps World!

Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak and Electronic Arts founder Trip Hawkins have been announced as the headline speakers at the fourth annual Apps World Europe taking place in London this October. Both will deliver keynote speeches at the two day event which attracts more than 8,000 attendees and includes 12 different conference streams, designed to deliver the latest insight into the mobile world.

Lead keynote speaker Steve Wozniak will be sharing his experiences and insights into the industry with developers in the free to attend Developer World conference stream on the second day of the conference, the 23rd October. As well as hearing how he has helped shape the computer and mobile industries attendees will also have unique opportunity to quiz Wozniak with their own questions.

Wozniak said; “I’m delighted to be speaking at Apps World, sharing my experience of 30 years in the mobile and computing industry, as well as learning from and feeding off the passion and enthusiasm of the app developer community in attendance.”

Meanwhile Electronic Arts Founder Trip Hawkins will be taking to the Gaming World stage to deliver the keynote address on the 22nd October. Speaking in the free to attend workshop Hawkins’ presentation will cover the present and future of apps in the context of cultural change and disruptive products as well as announcing the launch of an exciting new venture!

Hawkins said he was delighted to be presenting alongside Wozniak. “The app explosion is at the heart of the most pervasive technology change in the history of consumer behaviour, the modern equivalent of the discovery of fire. Steve Wozniak was a big help to me when I founded Electronic Arts and in a way, he started it all. It is an honour to share the Apps World stage with him.“
