What we're about
Developer Camp: The World's Best Hackathon
Who: Hundreds of developers, designers, storytellers, entrepreneurs, and testers
What: 48-hour hackathon for iOS, bots, and the Web
Why: There is a huge opportunity to bring diversity to the technology industry. Women and girls, along with men and boys, should have the chance to start coding with simple, powerful tools.
How: Reasonable ticket prices are offset by sponsor contributions and scholarships.
Previously known as iPhoneDevCamp, iPadDevCamp, and iOSDevCamp, this event has catalyzed the launch of award winning startups (like Getaround and Foodspotting), the formation of founder dream teams (Square), and the building of a talented and collaborative community of developers.
Our sponsor PullString makes creating computer conversation super fun and easy! Using any Mac, a writer can script and publish a chat bot using their service, starting for free.
If you'd rather learn on any recent-model iPad, Apple's free Swift Playgrounds app will teach you to code joyfully.
Out-of-town guests are welcome to join our inclusive event. Though projects will include both solo and team efforts, we encourage attendees to build teams of diverse expertise — business ideas, marketing, design, testing, coding, and back-end development. All attendees should be prepared to participate in the development of a project during the event. Scholarships are available to encourage diversity, and mentors are available.
“It’s one of the most pure and original hackathons. People come from all around and really just hack on something, meet new people, cherish the relationships that they create here—and go out to create huge companies. The developers we’ve met at Developer Camp are among the best in the world. Some of them have gone on to join our team. We’re excited to be supporting the event again this year... Developer Camp is the best.”
