What session did you enjoy the most?

Below are some comments about what sessions people enjoyed the most.


  • The future of SMS - what will replace SMS - a very useful topic and some interesting discussion was had.
  • It's a tie between the Twitter Vote Report talk, which was concrete and interesting, and Dennis Crowley's talk about making it easier to use NYC, which was way general and all over the place, but holistically inspiring and spawned some good Q&A for a while.
  • The Manga Man
  • Dennis Crowley's and Ian Spalter's two sessions were pretty informative. Both gave some good insights and new examples / sites / services, and were overall interesting, but nothing was earth shattering, which is not a complaint but an observation.
  • I got a nice overview of developing iPhone and iTouch apps, which was great because I had no idea what that process was like. I also really enjoyed Dennis' 3pm session. He gave tons of examples (though often he assumed everyone in the room was familiar with these sites, and I think everyone's knowledge was patchy so more explanation would've been helpful).
  • Seesions by Dennis and  David Harper were very informative
  • The designing one, 2nd session of the day. Phone Gap
  • NY Times
  • Dennis Crowley And A Room Full Of Smart Ppl Talking Abt Interesting Stuff
  • I enjoyed the session about QR codes--especially the author who embedded his book on his t-shirt!
  • Dennis Crowley / teendrama.com / Hey hi - anyone want to talk mobile + social or pervasive games? Past life = dodgeball.com
  • location-based marketing
  • Dennis's he's got great energy!
  • NYC mobile application brainstorm for vision & lessons learned from Mobile Dead for the content.
  • NY Times
  • NYT Mobile Strategy
  • dennis crowley's session for being the most entertaining and pretty interesting as well.
  • The IPhone sessions by Nick Carey.
  • NY Times developer
  • Introduction to iPhone development.
  • Dennis Crowley was def the most fun, knowledgeable, inspiring, and informative. Though, MANGA MAN was pretty epic.
  • Mobile Dead, mobile product design
  • all were very interesting in their own way, the sessions that talked about location-based services are most important to my job, so i enjoyed them the most.
  • Dennis Crowley's talk was a great survey and discussion - it truly energized the audience.
  • social marketing
  • Making living in NYC/anywhere easier.
  • Jose Martinez 2D code session 


Other Comments

Based on other comments received, there were a lot of "Thank you"'s and kind notes. We really appreciate it. Many said the event was worth repeating twice a year.

Additionally, some constructive feedback consisted of (these is not quoted feedback, this are comments that have been aggregated):

  • Longer session slots. Sometimes half an hour is too short and an hour is too long. In the future its worth considering a combination of half hour and 45 minute time slots.
  • More emphasis on meeting speakers associated with the event. Overall, more promotion of the speakers.
  • More opportunity to network in the morning and during lunch. 


What is a MobileCamp?

A BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. Check out the TheRulesOfBarCamp to learn what to expect.



A MobileCamp is a mobile technology themed BarCamp. Its aim is to bring together mobile enthusiasts, explorers and professionals to share the current state and their visions for the future direction of mobility. Topics may include - but are not limited to - mobile gaming, entrepreneurship, social mobility and presence, near field communication, physical hyperlinking, mobile storytelling, the importance of open standards, protocols, and platforms, linux based devices, and mobility on other continents.
