MVP FAQs

WHAT IS MVP CONFERENCE?

MVP, or Minimal Viable Product, is a product development term coined by Frank Robinson of SyncDev. It’s the most streamlined version of a product that fully contains its specific, complete set of features. Measuring an MVP’s performance allows for quick and data-driven iteration, making it the key foundational element of the product development process.

2015 is the inaugural year for MVP, the latest conference produced by Modev. At MVP, you’ll find attendees and speakers dedicated to the art, science and process behind developing products in an era of mobile, cloud, agile, and continuous delivery. Our vision at Modev is to convene discussions that transform the world through mobile technologies, and 2015 is only a start. With your attendance, engagement, and knowledge, MVP will become a leading global event in the technology product community.
