Mobile, Media & Embedded Developer Days call for papers

2 replies [Last post]
Anonymous

Last January the Mobile & Embedded Community sponsored the first ever
Mobile & Embedded Developer Days. The second of these annual events will
be hosted in sunny California at the Santa Clara Auditorium November
12-13, 2008 and this time we're expanding and renaming the event to
Mobile, Media & Embedded Developer Days 2008.

This year will be very similar to last year with in depth technical
sessions, 5-7 minute lightning talks, and poster sessions. And for those
asking yes we plan a social event the first night similar to the one we
had last year (probably the same place). If you were there last year you
know how strong technically this conference was and will want to return
again.

For more information about the conference and the call for papers see my
blog at

. Get your ideas together now because the call for papers closes
September 15.

Well, I am not sure about myself. In the last conference the audience
was clearly separated into platform developers and application
developers with little common interest. Application developers were
extremely bored with platform talks (except for "how to use it" kind)
and vice versa. Are you going to address this issue this year? The
vast majority were application developers, so there could be two
parallel streams with some common sessions and some invited talks from
the other side.

Oleg,

I am not aware we got that feedback (app people being bored
with platform talks) but it's certainly a good point. I think
the idea to keep the platform talks in a separate stream is
a worthwhile one.
