Last weekend the folks at PayPalx invited me to iOSDevCamp and what an amazing experience it was. If you aren't aware, PayPal hosts this annual event where developers gather together and spend three days developing applications for iOS and competing for awesome prizes.
I was amazed watching these developers. Some came in groups, and some never met before camp. Still, they created these great apps in less than three days in some cases. You could see them coding into the wee hours and on occasion, sleeping in the lobby back at the hotel. That's commitment!
There were many very interesting and creative applications created, but one of my absolute favorites was the BeeLine Reader which is a new technology designed to help people read faster by applying a color gradient to the text to reduce line transition errors. Never lose your place again! No electronic reading device should be without this. Check out all the demos here.
One of the best parts about being invited to iOSDevCamp was being able to connect some of the great folks who work within the PayPal and X.Commerce community. Many thanks to Perinne Crampton, Sudha Jamthe, Praveen Alavilli, and Myrna Rivera for making me feel so welcome.
