Update: The dates for this event have changed to May 7th and 8th
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been in the early planning phase for Mobile Camp Oz, a camp in the same format as Code Camp Oz (http://codecampoz.com/) in late April. Running over the ANZAC long weekend (23-24th April) the camp will cover topics on both designing and developing for mobile devices across the three main smartphone platforms, iOS, Android and of course Windows Phone 7.
Here’s a brief summary of the event so that you can pencil it into your calendar
Mobile Camp Oz: Outlook Calendar
Dates: May 7th/8th (Updated: 20/1/2011)
Venue: Charles Sturt University (Bathurst Campus)
Now the important bit – we’re looking for presenters for the event. If you’ve been designing or developing for any of the mobile platforms and you think you have a unique angle, we’d love to hear from you. The call for presenters is now open and I’d encourage you to put forward your session. We’ll be reviewing the sessions as they’re submitted with the intent of preparing an agenda for the event by mid-February. This means that if you’re interested in presenting we need your session abstract as soon as possible.

We’re also taking registrations at this point (http://mobilecampoz2011.eventbrite.com/?ref=ebtn). Numbers will be limited so it may be worth getting in early.
