On location at iPhone DevCamp
Just a week after the debut of the iPhone, about 300 developers gathered at the Adobe offices in San Francisco this weekend for a three-day developers camp/hackathon. The goal was to hack together applications for the iPhone. Apple doesn’t allow developers to write applications for the phone itself, so developers created Web-based applications that iPhone users will experience by visting Web sites in Safari. The applications spanned the spectrum, from games to apps that help you find nearby gas prices, shop on Amazon and iTunes, create word processing documents or use IM. We talked with event organizers Raven Zachary and Chris Messina and got a peek at some of the applications, including TeleMoose, gOffice, and AppMarks.
