Join us for an exciting evening devoted to developing apps for the iPhone
Saturday, 11th Oct 2008 | 7:00 pm
Jahanzeb Sherwani is Pakistan’s first developer whose application has been accepted into Apple’s iPhone App Store. Jaadu is a groundbreaking application for the iPhone and iPod touch that lets you control your computer from wherever you are in the world.
After Jahanzeb shows us how Jaadu works, he will talk about life as an indie iPhone developer and his experience in selling applications through the App Store. Jahanzeb would especially like to guide other budding developers and entrepreneurs who are interested in pursuing similar opportunities.
Jahanzeb is a final year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University and is working on speech interfaces for emerging markets in South Asia. He believes speech interfaces can be a revolutionary medium of interaction for a massive cell-phone consumer base that has, for the most part, not been able to tap into the digital revolution. Over the past year, he has worked with HANDS (a Pakistani NGO) to design, develop and test a telephone-based spoken interface in Sindhi for health information access by low-literate community health workers. Jahanzeb received his undergraduate degree from LUMS, where he studied computer science and social sciences, and also co-founded the LUMS Music Society. He was last spotted at T2F playing John Lennon’s “Imagine” on his guitar.
