PreDevCamp is coming up quickly - it's this Saturday, August 8th.  Are you interested in developing for the Pre, learning how to develop for the Pre, or just plain want to hear what developers are planning on?  Then you want to go join the 1000+ other people who are registered for PreDevCamp 2009 by registering yourself.  There are events in tons of cities - just click on the Event Finder dropdown here to find a 'camp near you.

We've received announcements from PreDevCamp San Francisco and Dallas (those events look to be pretty large) and have been chatting with the organizers and things sound - well - they sound darn good. is on board to provide fabulous prizes (well, prizes anyway) to attendees - stay tuned for more details on that later this week.

The event is free, it's independent, it's grass-roots and run by local organizers, and it's worldwide.  Heck, if you can't attend a local meeting, here's the deets on the live IRC channel where people will be talking Pre Dev throughout the day.

Want more details on PreDevCamp? They're coming - here's a hint about something we'll announce in just a bit. In the meantime hit up the official site or take a gander at their fancy combined Twitter Feed.



Still not too late to register for the camp. Atlanta developers or those interested in learning are welcome to join us at the Atlanta preDevCamp ( Looking forward to meeting everyone there.

I'm going to the Boston Camp, if I can figure out where it's being held.

Colonel Kernel, if there have never been any posts other than the default "$city is going to have a preDevCamp" one, or the bold name on the registration list isn't saying anything about their plans on twitter, then it's safe to assume the organizer isn't actively planning an event. Eek!

If this is the case at your city, PLEASE email me at if you can adopt an event. You can tell your mom it just followed you home!

I am running the SF preDevCamp and I am stoked about all who we have coming out to our event. I have confirmation from people at Pivotal Labs, the makers of Tweed, LikeMe, AP and City Search for webOS, people from ue architects who designed the interface for LikeMe with Adobe Fireworks, and last but not least several engineers including the team lead from Palm on the webOS Team!

Also there are many many ways for you to win a pre at our camp, be one of the first 2 groups to develop an application that uses zanox web services, develop a category winning app for the preCentral Dev Challenge or win the user vote app event for the preCentral Dev Challenge!

We will also have a ton of other prizes from many other companies at our event! Books, Shirts and more!

We are going to be streaming the event live on ustream from 11am until 6pm PDT so pick it up at your local event.

I can't find out anything about my local preDevCamp, and that makes me sad... Even though I wasn't entirely sure if I would be going anyway, it was kind of nice to know that it was there.

If you're in the Los Angeles area, it's not too late to signup for the Los Angeles Palm Pre Dev Camp here:
