What better way to spend Cinco de Mayo then with a bunch of your favorite OpenID community members learning more about OpenID? :-)
Sun has offered to host an OpenIDDevCamp at their annual day-long CommunityOne developer conference the day before the start of JavaOne. Not only will you get a chance to talk with OpenID developers you’ll also get to interact with members of other open source communities (such as Drupal and Ruby on Rails). Vidoop’s Michael Richardson is going to be helping lead the efforts with the help of other community members.
Monday May 5, 2008 – 11am – 8pm
Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA
We’ll be in Hall A and we’ll have tables, white boards and wifi. We’ll get things started at 11am and will run until 8pm. The CommunityOne reception will be in that hall from 6 – 8pm (read: free as in beer).
Please register for the event. In the “referral code” field, put in “OpenID”. That will get you in the door. General session is from 9:30am – 10:45am (see the website for more details).
Once signed up, you’ll receive the SWAG bag, lunch and be able to participate in the reception. Not only do you get access to CommunityOne but you get a free pass for Day 1 at JavaOne. CommuntiyOne is a free event.
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Over the past two and a half days, nearly fifty different people came to the first ever OpenIDDevCamp hosted in San Francisco. Nearly twenty people showed up Friday evening to start drawing up the agenda for Saturday from a list of possible projects. Saturday we had our first full day of discussions and hacking around OpenID today. About thirty-five people showed up and hacked, talked and shared. Sunday started out a bit slower though my noon everyone was back to cranking on a new OpenID test suite, XRI debugging, and OpenID usability with some focus on mobile (partially inspired by Chris’s blog post). Thanks to Vidoop for sponsoring breakfast, thanks MyStrands for sponsoring lunch and of course big props to Six Apart for hosting the event. A bunch of photos can be found up on Flickr under the “openiddevcamp” tag.
Much was done … here is just a sampling:
Additionally, getting an entire group of OpenID veterans was a great way for people to debug their problems and learn new things:
- A few people got their Ruby on Rails blogs OpenID enabled for commenting.
- Getting the Java version of consumer library installed and figuring out what it takes to be a provider (hint: acting as a great provider is hard).
- Zentu now lets you login using OpenID!
Some takeaways and things the group would like to try to accomplish for next time:
- Translate vCard attributes to Attribute Exchange schema end-points.
Planning and organizing OpenIDDevCamp really wasn’t that hard so if you’ve ever thought about putting together an event like this, you really should! Feel free to use this event’s wiki page as a template.
