The second iPhoneDevCamp 2 will be held on August 1-3, 2008 at Adobe Systems in San Francisco, CA. The not-for-profit, sponsor-supported gathering covers the development of applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch using the native SDK and web standards.
The first event was also hosted by Adobe, and held in August 2007 with 300 attendees and several dozen sponsors. Despite the lack of Flash support on the iPhone, Adobe last year said that it "embraces any opportunity to support the Web community. We believe that Adobe Creative Suite 3 is the best environment in which to build great Web experiences for any platform, on any device.
Attendees expected at the event include Cocoa Touch Developers, web developers, UI designers and testers. The conference's stated goal is to cull coders for a weekend of hands on work either together or alone to create an application.
Attendees will create new applications, migrate OS X applications, and learn to test and optimize their applications for the new iPhone/iPod Touch OS 2.0 and its official Apple SDK. Currently the Apple iPhone SDK is under NDA and the folks organizing this event are hoping that the NDA's will be removed once the SDK is officially released at WWDC this coming June 2008. They state on their website:
"We are sensitive to the NDA that Apple has in place on the iPhone SDK. It is our hope that Apple will lift this NDA shortly after the public launch of the App Store. iPhoneDevCamp 2 will be held sometime after this date. We have no intention of violating the terms that individual developers have in place with Apple on the iPhone SDK."
