Q&A video with Appcelerator founders

Appcelerator is making it easier for developers to quickly create Web applications. I spoke with the founders to better understand their strategy for community development.

I interviewed Appcelerator's founders last week to discuss their latest product release and their contest to try to spur community development.

We hit on a number of topics, including rich Internet applications, running a start-up, and how to empower a developer community.

A couple of interesting notes about the contest: the community decides who wins and entrants have to roll into Appcelerator's Twitter stream (@appcelerator) in order to participate. I think this is a very cool idea that I expect to become commonplace as marketers start to understand social media.

Appcelerator, founded in 2006, uses an open-source platform designed to help developers more quickly create Web apps.
