It’s that time again! The fourth annual Colorado Springs iOSDevCamp will be on May 3 and 4, 2013.
iOSDevCamp is an informal un-conference where anyone is welcome and encouraged to present about anything relevant to iOS development. Colorado has a fantastic iOS developer community and these events are a great place to meet people, learn things, and have fun.
The event will be held at two different locations:
- Friday Evening, May 3: Social meetup and planning for Saturday, 7-10PM. At the Enclave, 2121 Academy Circle, Suite 104, Colorado Springs, 80909.
- Saturday All Day, May 4: The main event, 9AM-6PM. At Fluke Networks, 2075 Research Parkway, Colorado Springs, 80920.
This event is free, but we ask that you register so that we can plan the event. Sign up at our registration page so that we’ll know to expect you!
We Want You
You’re welcome to just show up and enjoy the event, but this is a participatory event, and we want you to help make it great.
You do not need to be an expert. iOSDevCamp attracts a wide range of skill levels. Presentations can be on any topic of interest to developers. Technical presentations are great, but so are topics like working with graphic designers, running a business, etc. Anything that might be useful or just fun for an iOS developer is fair game. We love getting new people involved, so don’t worry if you’ve never done anything like this.
There are two options:
- Blitz Talks. A blitz talk is a short 5-minute presentation. You get 20 slides which advance automatically every 15 seconds. If you’ve never done a presentation before, blitz talks are a great way to start. Blitz talks are the only part of iOSDevCamp that is structured and planned.
- General Presentations. As with blitz talks, these can be on any topic of interest to the group. Unlike blitz talks the format and length is up to you. Want to do slides? Great. Prefer a demo of code or of an app? Also great. Maybe you have some cool sample code— either yours or an open source framework you like— and you’d like to walk us through the code. Anything goes.
If you can help us out: Go to our signup page and tell us what you have in mind.
