This weekend Six Apart will be hosting the first OpenIDDevCamp which is inspired by BarCamp, SuperHappyDevHouse, iPhoneDevCamp and MacHack, to develop web-based applications that use OpenID. It is a non-commercial event, organized by volunteers, with attendance free to all. By the completion of the weekend event we want to OpenID-enable many public web sites as well as grow the ranks of the OpenID community. The event will be held at the San Francisco offices of Six Apart, and out-of-town guests are certainly welcome.
Attendees will include web designers, developers and testers all working together over the weekend to enable OpenID on their sites or just learn more about this technology. Bonus points go to folks who can help make OpenID more accessible to general users. Development projects will include both solo and team efforts. While some attendees will wish to work solo during the event, we encourage attendees to team up, based on expertise, to work in ad-hoc project development teams. All attendees should be prepared to work on a development project during the event.
If you’re already in San Francisco or will be coming into town for MacWorld, want to learn more about OpenID, you should definitely drop by. Please RSVP for OpenIDDevCamp on Upcoming. Maybe you’ll even find out from Yahoo! what is going on with OpenID tags on Flickr?
