One More Thing was a small conference in Melbourne, Australia, that tried to give the little guys in iOS development the confidence to keep on doing what they're doing. We truly believe that the best apps come from small teams that mirror the passions of the people making them. We wanted to encourage others to take their own path towards creating the software they want to use and to share it with the world. Doing this hasn't become any easier over the years - if anything it's getting more and more difficult as the mobile app landscape is crowded with VC backed startups, large teams of marketers and brands.
In light of these realities, it pains us to say that One More Thing won't happen again in the near future. Putting on a conference like One More Thing is draining, not only financially, but heavily emotionally taxing. We just aren't in the right frame of mind to put on an event we feel would reflect what the community deserves.
Thank you to everyone who attended - we hope you learned, grew, networked and had fun. Thank you to all the speakers who gave up their precious time to share their thoughts with us. Thank you to all the sponsors who gave us their support in getting the conference off the ground each year. Thank you to Peter Wells for being the best MC that isn't an MC. Thank you to all the volunteers who woke up way too early with us, stayed back late with us and made sure things ran smoothly on the day. You'll always be part of our lives and we owe ya one.
One More Thing may return one day, but for now, it's gone into sleep mode. If you want to chat about One More Thing or just shoot the shit, email email@example.com

"It's just natural, it's not a great disaster. People keep talking about it like it's The End of The Earth. It's only a rock group that split up, it's nothing important. You know, you have all the old records there if you want to reminisce." - John Lennon on the break-up of The Beatles. Not that, like, we're The Beatles, but if you miss OMT, you can reminisce with the videos on YouTube:
