PalmSource - What a week in photos and words...

PalmSource 2005 Posted by Hello

Wrap up on The PalmSource Mobile Summit &
DevCon 2005 - what a week!

My greatest take away was how involved my peers, business relationships, team members, software developers, blog buddies, new acquaintances and yes, even competitors are so intertwined with a healthy appreciation and excitement for a piece of mobile and handheld technology called Palm OS. Technology is compelling when I hear firsthand stories about how software and hardware devices empower users to make a difference in the various fields of education, medical, ministry, business and personal lives!

Many people invest in healthy relationships and a common focus (in this case all things Palm) because it gives purpose/meaning to their life. They develop friendships and learn about their value to each other and to the world who embrace common goals. My thanks to the staff at PalmSource who invested a lot of energy and resources to create a positive and very upbeat environment for these relationships to flourish.

So here is a fly by of all things PalmSource DevCon with links to articles and photos. So if you want a deep dive on the conference, enjoy the following at your leisure!

Mike Rohde has a 4 Day Wrapup on the PalmSource DevCon series, which is a good contrast from the tech blogs.

DevCon Live Shows Audio interviews produced by The Computer Outlook Show and cohosted by my blog pal Michael Ashby as well as other blogs that covered the conference are listed here
