With fans like this who needs marketing. It’s not enough that Apple already got $400 million worth of free publicity, its fans are now organizing a bootcamp for iPhone developers, scheduled to take place one week after the iPhone ships (so that attendees might have a chance to get their hands on one).
The Unofficial iPhone Developers Camp is an upcoming gathering, inspired by BarCamp, SuperHappyDevHouse, and MacHack, to develop web-based applications and optimize web sites for iPhone. It is a non-commercial event, organized by volunteers, with attendance free to all. By the completion of the weekend event, a number of iPhone-ready web applications and web sites will be launched to the public. The event will be held in the Bay Area (California), and out-of-town guests are welcome.
I only hope that some of the existing Web 2.0 companies will also take part in this gathering, and will optimize their services for the iPhone. For instance I’m a big fan of Remember The Milk service (yes, I hope you’re reading and that you’ll Remember The iPhone!).
