Who: Designers, developers, and publishers for iPad.
What: 3-day weekend event, in the format of past iPhoneDevCamps.
When: April 16-18, 2010, 5pm Friday to 6pm Sunday.
Why: We love the developer community!
How: It will cost a small amount, possibly offset by sponsors.
Please indicate your thoughts in our pre-registration survey.
The event is inspired by BarCamp, SuperHappyDevHouse, and MacHack, to develop Cocoa Touch and Web-based applications for iPad. This follows the previous iPhoneDevCamp events held at Adobe Systems in San Francisco, July 2007 and August 2008, and Yahoo! in 2009. 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 iPad.
- Migrate Mac OS X applications to iPad.
- Test and optimize applications for iPad.
The event will feature:
- Simultaneous Events Worldwide
- Meetup Time on Friday with Refreshments
- Catered Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner on Saturday and Sunday
- Saturday Keynote (now accepting nominations)
- Open Mic for Questions
- Ad Hoc Sessions by Participants
- Late Saturday Gaming
- Sunday Keynote (now accepting nominations)
- Hackathon Contest
- Everyone Leaves with Something

- Keynote Speakers
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.
