On october 14-15, I will be attending my first developer conference in Montreal: The Çingleton Symposium. The cost is not cheap at $640 canadian for an indie developer like me but the list of speakers is awesome:
- John Gruber. Well, you know John Gruber, right? @gruber on Twitter.
- Craig Hockenberry. He is a software developer at Iconfactory, the makers of Astronut and Ramp Champ.
- Daniel Jalkut. Owner of Red Sweater Software, the company selling MarsEdit.
- Brent Simmons. Well known software developer working behind NetNewsWire and TapLinx to name just a few. Here is he blog.
- Paul Kafasis. He is a product manager at Rogue Amoeba creating many audio oriented software for Mac OS X.
Why I decided to attend this conference? First, I wanted to hear the speakers on the challenges we face in the era of mobility and paradigm shifts that we are all facing these days. Second, I wanted be able to get closer to the developer community and maybe develop ties. Third, I wanted to use this opportunity conduct interviews with a few of the speakers as well as many attendees that are well known in the iOS development community.
I plan to blog about this event and post my impressions on Twitter during the two days event.
