Global Event sponsorship and prizes details.

As you might know, we're one of many cities taking part in this global DevCamp week-end. There's a new post up on the central blog about all the nice goodies you can expect from the global sponsors, and some more info on how to register your team's app with the global event organisation.

In case you're wondering, we've already received the O'Reilly and Sony Ericsson prizes. Free e-books and a sweet SmartWatch. :)

You should note that some of the other prizes listed on the global page are not available to North American participants. Also important to note, you'll want to register your app with the global event organization before the 20th to be eligible for some of the bigger prizes. See this page for complete rules and conditions, as well as the list of prizes.

Sneak peek, sponsors, prizes and shiny toys!

With 2 days before the event, here's a few sneak peeks at what we have in store for the week-end.

Our hosts are the CRIM (Centre de recherche informatique de Montréal), you can see a few pictures of the location on the left.

Also we're very happy to announce we have 2 new sponsors! The great folks at DevTeach are sponsoring the event and will be giving out a ticket to their MobileTeach Vancouver 5 day conference. We're also being sponsored by the fine folks at Fasken Martineau who will be at the event, giving our attendees legal and business advice.

Finally, in the spirit of helping our attendees on the engineering side as well as the business side, we'll make available a common pool of toolkits and android devices so people can test and develop their projects. So far we have an Android accessory development kit, an Xperia Play phone and a 10.1 Samsung Galaxy Tab. If you have anything to contribute to the pool, please let us know and we'll add it to the list.
