Looking Back at iPhoneDevCamp 3 at Yahoo!
Our Director of Research & Development, Pradeep Elankumaran, and I attended iPhoneDevCamp 3 during the first week of this month. For those of you who haven’t heard of iPhoneDevCamp, it is supposed to be setup as an “unconference”, sort of a “Barcamp” type of an event, featuring content from the attendees and dedicated time for hacking on your own applications. Last year’s iPhoneDevCamp was hosted by Adobe Systems in San Francisco. This year’s iPhoneDevCamp was kindly hosted by the good guys at Yahoo! in Sunnyvale, California.
Yahoo! has an amazing campus that was more than capable of hosting the large amount of iPhone developers there for the event. There were also many “satellite” events going on in different cities around the world at the same time. One really interesting feature that they had at the event was a live stream of presenters of developers hacking away that could be viewed on any iPhone thanks to the new HTTP live streaming available in OS 3.0.
