Let me preface this post with I’m not an iPhone developer – I’m a Flash developer.
I spen last week days in San Jose at the 360iDev conference and I want to extend an HUGE congratulations to John and Tom who “Are 360 Conferences”. These 2 guys have put together another awesome conference (the other being 360Flex) for the iPhone community. Being someone who has spent zero time in the iPhone Objective-C world, the 360iDev conference was the perfect event to attend. Here is a short list of why I think so:
- 360Conferences strive to put together sessions and speakers from a wide range of backgrounds. From experienced to inexperienced users, there was something for everyone
- The iPhone/Objective-C/Cocoa community is extremely friendly. Talking to some of the speakers and other attendees was one of the best things about this conference for me.
- 360Conferences wants to keep the cost low. I mean come on, less than $500 for a conference – yep that rocks.
- John and Tom are just damn cool guys.
I think it was time well spent in San Jose and I hope that 360Conferences keeps 360iDev around. Oh, and that thing about me not being an iPhone developer….I am now – or at least I’m workin’ on it! Make sure you check out a 360Conference weather it is at 360Flex or 360iDev – you won’t be sorry.
