Coders Meet For iPhone Developers Camp

Jul 6th, 2007 | By | Category: iPhone, iPods & Portable Media Players

iPhone Developers CampCoders are meeting this weekend in San Francisco for the first-ever iPhone Developers Camp, a Barcamp-style unconference to learn about iPhone development.

“It’s going to be the largest gathering of iPhone owners–we’ll probably have at least 150 iPhones in the same room,” promises event organizer Raven Zachary.

“The Friday after the WWDC [Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference], I was sitting on my deck and thinking about how we could encourage an iPhone development community to spring up,” Zachary says, “And I thought we should organize a BarCamp-style camp.”

Zachary and five other organizers, including BarCamp founder Chris Messina, put together the iPhoneDevCamp in the three weeks following the end of the WWDC.

Event organizers expect to draw 300 developers, designers, and testers at this all-volunteer event.

“The focus is on people who are developers, designers, and testers,” says Zachary of the event’s structure. “It’ll be a great place for them to learn and work with their peers. [Participants] will work in teams over the weekend to build and launch applications for the iPhone. On Sunday, our goal is to have on our site, iPhoneDevCamp, links to a number of applications for the iPhone.”
