Announcing iOSDevCamp 2011

iOSDevCamp 2011
July 15-17, 2011
PayPal, San Jose, California

We are pleased to announce iOSDevCamp 2011, the sixth not-for-profit iOS developer conference produced by the original iPhoneDevCamp all-volunteer team. What was originally called ‘iPhoneDevCamp’ has been launched as ‘iOSDevCamp’, to match Apple’s new naming convention. This is a combined iPhone and iPad event.

We expect this to be the largest event yet, with over 500 attendees. Thank you to our lead sponsor, PayPal for again offering its great facility for our event. For those of you who attended iPadDevCamp, we will be using the same space, but PayPal is increasing the available rooms to accommodate additional attendees. Thank you, PayPal X Developer Network!

As a reminder, 100% of your registration fee goes to event costs. We are a not-for-profit all-volunteer group.

Why: We love the developer community!

How: It will cost a small amount to attend, with additional event costs offset by sponsors.

The event is inspired by BarCamp, SuperHappyDevHouse, and MacHack, to develop Cocoa Touch and Web-based applications for Apple’s iOS. This follows the previous iPhoneDevCamp events held at Adobe Systems in San Francisco, July 2007 and August 2008, Yahoo! in 2009, and PayPal last year:

Out-of-town guests are welcome. Attendees will include iOS developers, web developers, UI designers, entrepreneurs and testers, all working together over the weekend. Development projects will include both solo and team efforts. While some attendees will wish to work solo during the event, we encourage attendees to team up, based on expertise, to work in ad-hoc project development teams. All attendees should be prepared to work on a development project during the event.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Create new applications for iOS.
  • Migrate Mac OS X applications to iOS.
  • Test and optimize applications for iOS.

The event will feature:

We are committed to staying not-for-profit; all charges will go toward the production of iOSDevCamp, and the organizers don’t make a cent. The organizers are Raven Zachary, Dom Sagolla, Christopher Allen, and Emory Al-Imam. We are currently seeking:
