FormatPresentations, development projects, and demos




OpenIDDevCamp is an upcoming gathering, inspired by BarCamp, SuperHappyDevHouse, 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 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.


Attendees will be able to:


  • Enable their web applications with OpenID.
  • Learn about resources for OpenID and what its all about.
  • Find help making your web applications work with OpenID.
  • Meet people in the OpenID community.


This event is being held following the finalization of the OpenID 2.0 specification. This allows attendees to learn more about the changes in OpenID or get involved if they have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for 2.0 to be completed.
