Apple is holding a “confidential” and invite-only one day iPhone Tech Day Workshop, July 23, 2007 on Apple’s campus in Cupertino, California for web developers, widget developers, web designers, and software engineers. The purpose of the workshop seems to be a sort of “iPhone 101” for developers, and to help them optimize web applications for the iPhone.
The event is free, but you have to be an Apple Developer Connection member. The email (copied below) says its invite only but also shows how seemingly anyone can attend.
