Feature Presenters


James Cuda
Founder, Savage Interactive

James is an entrepreneur with his head in the clouds, yet his feet firmly on the ground. He is an award winning designer, an accomplished artist and a formidable gamer.

Founder of Savage Interactive, one of the premier iOS developers focused on mobile software for the professional artist, James was instrumental in the design and development of the multi award winning illustration app, Procreate for iPad.

Procreate reached number 1 on the AppStore in several countries around the globe shortly after its release in 2011–pushing out big name titles such as Angry Birds–a feat which Procreate has now done many times over. Procreate was also hand picked and featured by Apple as the coveted App of the Week, not once, but twice in stores around the globe.


Scott Brewer
Co-founder and CTO at Art Processors Pty Ltd

Art Processors are the Melbourne based company responsible for the mobile application, “The O”, deployed at Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art.  The O is the world’s first mobile guide designed to completely remove wall labels at an Art Gallery; The O went live in January 2011 and has been used by over 500,000 visitors to Mona since.  After the success of The O Art Processors decided to take the concepts of The O and turn them into the Enso Platform, allowing ease of roll out to other galleries and cultural institutions who were interested in working with new technology to enrich their visitor experience.

Awarded AUC student scholarships to attend WWDC in both 2007 and 2008 Scott has been working in the Mac and iOS domains for a number of years.  In this presentation Scott will talk about the making of The O for MONA, some of the challenges faced in turning The O (a bespoke solution) into the Enso Platform, and turning a motley crew of solo developers into the fighting force that is Art processors.
