Call for Proposals

Call closes 11:59pm CDT on April 4, 2010 April 16, 2010.

Submit a proposal (email)

iPadDevCamp Chicago 2010 will be held April 30 to May 2, 2010 at TechNexus, 200 South Wacker Drive in Chicago. We are now accepting proposals for conference sessions. Proposals are due at 11:59pm CDT April 16, 2010.

Presentation formats

iPadDevCamp Chicago will mix two presentation formats: 50-minute in-depth presentations and 5-minute Blitz Talks. Generally, Blitz Talks are more appropriate for introductory material (“introductory” != “novice”) while the 50 minute presentations are better suited for deeply technical (“show us the code!”) material.

When submitting a presentation proposal, declare your intended format.

Proposals for Blitz Talks must include a link to a Keynote file, a PowerPoint file, or a 280 Slides presentation containing a first draft of all 20 slides for the talk.

What might interest us

Proposals should focus on helping attendees by teaching from experience. Any iPhoneOS-related topic can be proposed. We’re specifically looking for a large number of advanced-level proposals. With the increasing availability of excellent books and online resources for iPhoneOS development, we think the iPadDevCamp Chicago audience would benefit from a larger helping of hardcore technical and design topics.

If you’re a developer of iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch applications or game; a mobile Web developer or designer; or an interested, qualified practitioner with insights and stories you’d like to share with dozens of other iPhoneOS developers then tell us about it!

Some specific areas we’d like to see represented are:

  • time-saving developer productivity tips, tricks, and tools
  • patterns and best practices for developing maintainable iPhoneOS applications
  • making the most out of new iPhoneOS features
  • iPad development case studies (native or web)
  • migrating a Mac OS X app to the iPad
  • creating universal (iPhone+iPad) applications
  • synchronization and collaboration with desktop and/or iPhone applications
  • creating bleeding-edge Web applications providing user experiences rivaling native applications
  • engineering hardware accessories using the dock connector
  • anything that is novel or insightful

Please be clear about the experience and knowledge level of the audience that you are targeting: novice, intermediate, or expert. While the majority of the program will focus on intermediate- and expert-level content, we expect to include some introductory material as well.
