If you are a kids’ app developer and you are not familiar with Dust or Magic’s App Camp, let’s get you oriented. App Camp is a spring conference championed by Warren Buckleitner, editor of the Children’s Technology Review. It takes place on the Monterey Peninsula at the Asilomar conference grounds in mid-May.
Warren’s genuine and welcoming tone sets the stage for three days of enriching conversation about kids’ app design. It’s not a “conference” in the corporate sense – it’s more of a retreat.
This year, Dan Russell-Pinson will be presenting about his apps and mobile strategies. You may know Dan from Stack the States, Stack the Countries, and Monster Physics. Having his talents showcased at App Camp, along with an opportunity to speak with him live, would be a great reason to figure out a way to get out there.
If cost holds you back, write “moms with apps” on your application, and team up with someone else so you can register with a buddy. Hopefully a discounted rate will be available for you. If not, be persistent.
