We didn’t start 360|iDev to stroke our ego, make people come to us. In fact the first several years of 360|iDev we moved around the country. We started in 2009 because we wanted to provide the iOS community a place to come together. To meet each other and collaborate. That was long before if became popular to do so.
The value of 360|iDev has never been technical depth, though we typically have speakers talking about things the rest of the community won’t be talking about for months. It’s the magic that comes from cool people all in the same room.
People are constantly telling us how much the conference changed their lives. They found a new full time gig, or they got the inspiration to go indie and build the game or app they’ve been dreaming of. They got hired at Apple. And much more.
We both come from programming backgrounds, we love code and coders and everything that comes with creating new things. Between us we’ve been writing code for about 25 years or so.
That’s why we do it.
That’s who we are.
