Internet time is amazing. Watching how the iPhoneDevCamp Barcamp experience created a Flash-mob of ~300 people is amazing. The event was fantastically organized, and everyone wanted to be there. I mean, if you give up your weekend for it, you want to be there.
A lot of good things came out of the weekend.
Christopher Allen kicked off Saturday with a Keynote presentation that acted as a level-setter (for those not watching iPhoneWebDev, and our coverage) that covered what we know about the iPhone to date.
iUI is based on Joe Hewitt’s iPhone navigation work and has the following goals:
- Create Navigational Menus from JSON objects
- Build the nav headers and as much of the UI with the canvas tag (JS is sllowww on MobileSafari)
- Events for phone rotation
- Provide a more “iPhone-like” experience to Web apps (on or off the iPhone).
Hopefully it will be the clearing house for all of the tricks that come in, such as the the switch component.
I am looking forward to the next iPhoneDevCamp.
