East Bay iPhone Developers Meeting
I'll be heading over to the iPhone Developers Meeting tonight, August 21, to see fellow local iPhone aficionados and developers. Christopher Allen ( www.lifewithalacrity.com ) is the de facto force behind the recent iPhoneDevCamp & Hack-a-thon, as well as the extremely active iPhoneWebDev Google group.
As it turns out, Christopher's co-working office is about 1.5 short blocks from CheathamLane's own home office. Go figure!
At any rate, interested parties read on for more info and links about tonight's meeting. See you there!

On Tuesday, August 21st I will be hosting an East Bay iPhone
Developers Meeting, at 7pm until 10pm in our www.BerkeleyCoworking.com conference room. The address and directions are on the website, and it is two blocks from Ashby BART.
We can only fit 25 people, so I'm using the Upcoming RSVP system to limit the attendees to that number. You can register at http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/234913/ . If you register and end up not being able to attend, please change your registration to no so that someone else can take your place. There is no charge for attending.
Like iPhoneDevCamp and MacHack, I'd like to focus on things that we can build together. Some possibilities:
* A microformat for describing iPhone webapp services. This could include icon, description, pointers to special web pages, etc.
* Support of various microformat standards like hCard.
* An iPhone standard UI and examples for OpenID.
* Exploration of what we can do usefully with Safari Canvas.
If you have some other suggestions on what we should discuss, post them at http://groups.google.com/group/iphonewebdev/browse_thread/thread/f7b0ddf... .
So bring your laptop development environment, your iPhone, and your ideas!
