A day to think, a week to design – realise your idea for a wallet application in one week.

With expert help on everything from coding to agile project development to business planning.  Sanity check your ideas (or conceive a new one) with help from thought leaders and industry experts. If you’re a one man band or a leader of a team of hundreds, if you have a wallet idea (or want one) this event is for you.

The #DWF has been broken down into three themes:

  1. Payment: 18.03.13 – 22.03.13  Register here
  2. Loyalty:    15.04.13 – 19.04.13.
  3. Identity: May Date t.b.a.

The #DWF’s primary goal is to encourage the development of wallet applications.  Developers, designers, industry leaders and ‘people with a view’ will make up the attendees and contributors.

There will be awards and recognition for products developed and/or conceived during the week. We hope that the people you meet, the buzz of the event, the things you learn and the ideas you generate will be the real reward, but hey what’s wrong with a little public kudos and some top nosh?

DWF Agenda


Q. Do I have to develop something I heard in one of the briefs?

A. No. you can develop something based on your own idea or something else which you may have conceived during the event. The briefs are there to help stimulate thought but they are not a pre-requisite for a ‘program’.

Q. Is there a prize?

A. All developers who submit an entry will be invited to a dinner with the judges and a small award made for the ‘winning’ entry. We hope that the true rewards will come from the product itself.

Q: When do I have to submit my apps? Is there a deadline?

A: The Sunday following the week of the camp, usually the 24th will be the deadline. We will judge the entries on the 25th (the following Monday) and announce the winner the same day. Keep that night free as the judges will be free to take the winner to dinner that night.

Q: What constitutes a ‘valid’ entry?

A: A product or service designed to utilise one or all of the following: Microsoft Wallet functionality on Windows Phone 8, or use Azure. This can be mixed or matched with other device and platform operating system if that’s your thing. Technical entries will be vaulted in working code or active prototypes in HTML or other markup/programming language (but must target a Microsoft wallet service). wireframes and UX flows can be included in support of an application but will need to be supported by some code.

A straw man business plan (format will be provided).
