Apple, Wikipedia and Duolingo Join Code/Mobile

Fresh off the launch of the iPhone 6 and debut of the Apple Watch, Apple will join Re/code at the inaugural Code/Mobile conference in Half Moon Bay on October 27 and 28. Also joining us to talk about their mobile strategies will be the heads of the world’s biggest collaborative project, Wikipedia, and the clever education app Duolingo. First up: Apple VP Greg Joswiak will take the stage to discuss what its executives have called the company’s “best pipeline in 25 years” after launching the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 8 and Apple Pay.
