Palm Dev Days Recovery
I'm writing this from a hotel room in SunnyVale, recovering from the tremendous event we put on for our dedicated developers at Palm's first ever webOS developer event last Friday and Saturday. The turnout was great. Over 100 developers paid their own money to drive, fly, and chopper in to Palm HQ. I taught an intro to webOS session for the entire first day, then answered questions and attended sessions the second. Topping it all with dinner at a local brew pub was a splendid idea.
My great thanks to my fellow Developer Relations Team and the many dedicated engineers who came to present, answer questions, and socialize with our developers. I know it meant a lot to the attendees to have such a personal connection with Palm. Extra special thanks to our CEO, John Rubenstein who personally addressed the developers at the end of the first day.
All in all, a great success. Slides and photos are forthcoming. Now time to sleep for a few days until next week when I'll be speaking on HTML 5 at the Web 2.0 conference.
