...and many more prizes were given out throughout the camp.

 

Tentative Schedule:

 

  • Friday evening: Informal gathering of projects and teams.

 

  • Saturday morning: A "What We Know", "What We Don't Know" session, and then a session where people can have an opportunity to recruit others to help with their projects.

 

  • Saturday afternoon though Sunday mid-day: Find something undocumented and share it! Show us how you optimized for the iPhone! Create a cool demo of a feature we didn't know about! It doesn't have to be perfect, just enough to be able to share it!

 

  • Sunday 1pm: Entry Deadline -- all entries for the Hack-a-Thon demo should be submitted to website. If there are more submissions then what we have time to demonstrate, submissions that offer source code will be given first priority, then submissions that the moderators think are "cool".

 

  • Sunday 2pm: The public Hack-a-Thon demo begins in the Adobe Theatre. Demonstrations should be around 5 minutes, and no more then 10. We'll try to have multiple projectors set up so that we can transition from demo to demo quickly. Many prizes will be given at the choice of the moderators, and by acclaim from the audience.

 

  • Sunday 4:50pm -- Some more valuable prizes (including possibly an iPhone, Adobe CS, etc.) will be given out by random draw to those who participated in the Hack-a-Thon. At their discretion, the iPhoneDevCamp staff may also allow some others who did not demo the opportunity to get a chance to win if they demonstrated values of sharing, participation, and "can do" attitude during the iPhoneDevCamp.

 

  • Sunday 5:00pm -- End of Hack-a-Thon, source code and demos are made available to the public!

 

Misc

 

The iPhoneDevCamp organizers and Hack-a-Thon moderators are not eligible for any of the more valuable prizes.
