I'm impressed. You don't often see big companies with well established niches come around and really innovate, but RIM (Blackberry) has really done it this time.
They're getting ready to release their competitor to the iPad, the Blackberry Playbook and to make sure they have a well stocked library of apps ready they've made an incredible offer. Write an app for the Playbook, get it approved for the store and they'll send you a FREE playbook as a thank you.
So our first ever cfdevcamp came and went this weekend. The day went very well and most of it is already a blur... We had a great turnout, including around 7 or 8 people who came in from outside Phoenix. 5 or 6 from Tucson, one from S California and I think even one person from Seattle!
I'm so proud of out team, everyone worked so hard to make this event happen and then spent an entire Saturday helping total strangers learn a little but more about ColdFusion. It was exciting to be part of something like that.
This post is mostly for myself and the other members of the cfdevcamp Phoenix team, after hosting a big event like that it's best to get down your immediate thoughts on what went well and what didn't can be crucial for planning your next big event.
