iPhoneDevCamp 3 Worldwide in August

Dom and Raven

We are pleased to announce iPhoneDevCamp 3, coming August 2009 and broadcasting from the San Francisco Bay Area.

The event is inspired by BarCamp, SuperHappyDevHouse, and MacHack, to develop Cocoa Touch and Web-based applications for iPhone and iPod touch. This follows the previous iPhoneDevCamp events held at Adobe Systems in San Francisco, July 2007 and August 2008. Out-of-town guests are welcome.

Attendees will include Cocoa Touch developers, web developers, UI designers, 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 iPhone and iPod touch.
  • Migrate Mac OS X applications to iPhone and iPod touch.
  • Test and optimize applications for iPhone and iPod touch.

The event will feature:

Last year was an incredible success: the winners went on to do righteous things, and the sponsors saw tremendous growth. We doubled the previous year’s attendance:

We expect this year to more than double the size and scope of the event. In order to cover the additional overhead, we may need to charge a small fee (up to $50) for folks to book a spot at the event.

We are committed to staying not-for-profit; all charges will go toward the production of iPhoneDevCamp, and the founders don’t make a cent. The founders are Raven Zachary (who had the original idea), Dom Sagolla, Christopher Allen, William Hurley, and Blake Burris, with the honorable Chris Messina presiding. We are currently seeking:

  • Venue
  • Sponsors
  • Keynote Speakers
  • Donations

Note: Until we have a venue and a date, we will not be accepting attendee registrations, but all sponsors are guaranteed at least one spot.

To get involved with the above, please email Raven and Dom: info@iphonedevcamp.org.

We can’t wait to see what awaits us this year! For now, we’ll leave you with That Phone Guy:

    If you can’t make it to Sunnyvale, CA in August there are 19 satellites around the world so no matter where you are there is an iPhoneDevCamp near you so you can still participate! Anyone in Florida that wants to attend but can’t get to CA join us in Tampa at the Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI). Check the Satellite locations for an iPhoneDevCamp near you!
