AltConf & Layers Present App: The Human Story

The documentary film, App: The Human Story, is showing an exclusive pre-release screening this June at the Hammer Theatre, San Jose. The documentary is an intimate view into the journeys of independent app makers as they traverse a dynamic new industry. Newcomers and industry veterans alike must navigate new paradigms, an exploding market, and even their own values.

Presented by AltConf & Layers, the screening will kick off WWDC week on Sunday June 4th! Starting at 5pm, the screening will be followed by a panel discussion made up of cast members from the film, including Adam Lisagor, Brent Simmons, Cabel Sasser, Grey Osten, John Gruber, Ish Shabazz, Jay Dysart, Melissa Hargis, Steven Frank and Windy Chien. One of the Directors of the film, Jake Schumacher, will also be attending.

Tickets are $25 and all proceeds will go to App Camp For Girls, a non-profit educational program for girls, transgender, non-binary and underrepresented genders in technology. At App Camp For Girls, aspiring developers brainstorm, design, code, and pitch an iPhone app in one week, while being inspired by role models in the tech industry.

If you’re interested in volunteering at this event please get in touch - volunteers will receive free entry to the event and a copy of the film.
