hosting iOSDevCampAMS was a blast!

What a fun it was. As veteran participant I was given the opportunity to host a hackathon myself. iOSDevCamp is the biggest iOS hackathon in the USA, and also has satellite events. I happened to be in Amsterdam so I seized the opportunity when I was asked to run the iOSDevCamp Amsterdam event. A full weekend it was, starting with pitches on Friday night, hacking on Saturday and Sunday and final presentations on Sunday with a jury, in which I also participated.

iOSDevCamp USA had this year with over 500 developers. We in Amsterdam had in total 4 teams, with over 25 iOS developers.

Civ Orbis won, with their history Foursquare app. They also won the iOSDevCamp Satellite competition, woohoo! Here is a video of the whole weekend:
