Mashup Camp 4 Next Week

John Musser, July 11th, 2007

Mashup Camp4Mashup Camp 4, the premier event for mashup developers and API providers takes place next week in Mountain View. There is no better place to go to meet with the key players in this field: mashup developers, API providers, tool providers, VCs and a range of other interesting folks (see the Who’s Coming List).

Camp organizers David Berlind and Doug Gold always deliver a terrific event and David gives a good overview of the event in his ZDNet blog this week. And speaking of blogs and who’s going, mashup developer Joe Duck has this summary of Mashup Camp Blogs.

One of the highlights of the event is always the Speed Geeking competition where attendees get to see mashup developers demo their creations and vote for their favorites. This time it’s in the form of the Business Mashup Challenge, a competition sponsored by IBM, StrikeIron, Kapow, Dapper and AccuWeather. Past winners are some of the more fun and innovative mashups out there:

  • Podbop: Winner of the very first Mashup Camp contest. Slick podcast app that combines band event data from Eventful with MP3 tracks. Type in a city, get MP3s, discover a band you like, and go see them.
  • The Hype Machine: Winner of Best Mashup at Mashup Camp 3 in Jan 2007. The Hype Machine is an experiment that keeps track of songs and discussion posted on the best blogs about music.
  • Weather Bonk: Rich mashup with live weather, forecasts, webcams, and more on a Google Map.
