PreDevCamp Meeting in Sunnyvale at Palm's HQ; The Photo Story

The PreDevCamp held this last Saturday at Palm's headquarters in Sunnyvale was a fine outing of the Developers who have worked very hard to get to this point. Big props must to out to Luke Kilpatrick for stepping in with 11 days notice to put the event together and to all the others that assisted predevcampsf to organizing the event.

As Palm's headquarters in Sunnyvale, the meeting room was just off of the Cafeteria in near the front of the building. Donors managed to get sodas and water for the attendees and pizzas were on their way later in the day from Roundtable.

The space was filled pretty quickly with many of the attendees standing in the back and on the sides of the meeting room. Coders from all over including the writer of the Twee app (not to be confused with Pivotal Labs Tweed app), from Utah, was in attendance as well.

Will Palm Get Its 'Mojo' Back? Developers seeking a viable mobile platform alternative to iPhone and others sign up for dev camps. 


preDevCamp is an upcoming not-for-profit gathering to develop applications for Palm Pre using both the Mojo SDK and traditional web standards. The event is currently being planned in over 60 cities around the world. While many observers are skeptical that Palm can make a sizable dent in the mobile market, hundreds of developers are eagerly awaiting the release of the company's new webOS and the Palm Pre mobile device.

These developers have signed up to participate in dev camps that are slated to take place on the first weekend after Palm releases webOS and Pre. These camps are being organized by the developers and are not under Palm's purview, nor Sprint's, the carrier designated to sell the device in the United States, according to the organizers.
