Ever wondered how an award winning team of mobile developers create some of Australia’s best, and most popular apps? Wonder no more – Outware Mobile is proud to present The OMPodcast.

OMPodcast

How did this come about? I was chatting with Danny Gorog (Director/Co-Founder) at our End of Year Party a few months back and we discovered we’d both been thinking about making a Podcast. We wanted to hear an Australian perspective on mobile development, and also show the world what we’re doing here in Melbourne. The rest was easy; given the ridiculous amount of brilliant engineers, designers, PMs, and other support staff we have on hand, it’s simply been a matter of who’s going to take part in which show.

I’m excited to be adding Outware’s voice to the Tech Podcast community and hope you’ll enjoy our conversations. It’s no secret that Outware Mobile is a great place to work, and I think listening to The OMPodcast you’ll understand why.
