iPhone developers camp slated for early July

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A group of volunteer designers and developers plan to team up in the Bay Area early next month to host the first ever iPhone Developer Camp, a non-commercial event aimed at making the Web a better place for Apple Inc.'s upcoming mobile handset.

The free gathering, inspired by BarCamp, SuperHappyDevHouse, and MacHack, is open to the public and will run July 6-8 at a still undetermined location in San Francisco, Calif. By the completion of the three-day event, the group's organizers hope to launch a number of iPhone-ready web applications and web sites to the public.

Attendees will include web designers, developers, testers, and iPhone owners, all working together to improve the web experience for iPhone. Development projects will include both solo and team efforts, though attendees will be encouraged to team up, based on expertise, to work in ad-hoc project development teams.

Specifically, the camp will feature a four-pronged agenda: creating new web applications for iPhone, optimizing existing web applications for iPhone, migrating Dashboard Widgets to web-based widgets for iPhone, and testing and optimizing web sites for iPhone.

Attendees will not need to own one of the Apple handsets to participate, however those who do possess an iPhone will be encouraged to bring it along, as a large number of the devices will ease the development and testing process.

Those people interested in participating and helping to locate a venue can head over to the iPhone Developers Camp website and add their names to the attendees list.

Seems like a good place for thieving hands to get an iPhone. I would be very wary of taking one there.

Green on green, that looks more like Khaki on Olive, but my iMac monitor may need adjusting!

Ten years ago, we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash.  Today we have no Jobs, no Hope and no Cash.
