With every app, article, and podcast we’re doing our part to put Chicago at the center of the mobile revolution.
Creating Bytes Over Bagels
Our love for the Chicago fermented into a weekly podcast called Bytes Over Bagels. From startups, to fund managers, to policy makers and serial entrepreneurs, we are covering the pulse of the Chicago tech scene. Promoting brands and Chicago music, our audience has grown to thousands of listeners in Chicago and around the world.
Growing Technical Talent
We are passionate about education and continuing to grow and retain talent in Chicago within the development community. Our Principal of Technology Don Bora is also Co-Founder and Chief Facilitator, leading iOS courses, at Mobile Makers Academy. They provide an 8 week course for learning how to create iOS applications in Chicago.
Windy City Digital Project Managers
Project Managers are the unsung heroes of many teams. We’re trying to change that both through our products and how we communicate. Our studio helped launch a Chicago area Meetup for Digital Project Managers. (Almost named Cat Herders Anonymous.)
Chicago iOS Developers
With the release of iOS, Apple changed the programming world as well as the path of Eight Bit Studios. This Meetup allows us to connect with other iOS enthusiasts from seasoned veterans to curious amateurs.
