iPhoneDevCamp Wrapup Including IUI

Category: iPhone, JavaScript, WebKit

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.

Fast forward a little, and you end up with the apps that came out of the weekend (Pete has a few favourites, but misses Appleopolis), and a new open source project on Google Code, iUI.

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.

Actually a better representative list of the apps that were presented is on the Hack-a-Thon page, not the applications list page.
