What do you get when you combine Developers and Devices?

You have a “Devs2 a Palooza”.

In this Zend Confernce 2013 keynote, David Intersimone, “David I”, will take developers on a tour of the smart/intelligent sensor/device world and the opportunities for developers to create applications for next generation desktop computers, 2-in-1 devices, smart phones and devices of all types, shapes and sizes.

Today’s smart phones have location, accelerometer, orientation, cameras, microphones, voice control, alternative user interfaces and other sensors and devices. In the next few years we will also see sensors and devices for temperature, humidity, proximity, personal health monitoring, and more. We are also witnessing the appearance of more than trillions of wireless sensor devices with new opportunities for developers to build apps for wearables, automobiles, medical devices, meteorology, climate monitoring, home control, and more.

David will bring multiple devices to show what developers can build today and into the future.

Get ready for audience participation with the devices as well!

Loved this presentation. The future is definitely a world where physical input affects programs.

Such a great and fun presentation. Need to get some extra jobs to buy all the cool gadgets. Thank you.

Great talk. I want to buy a drone now :-)

Fabulous keynote

Very informative. Enjoyed the enthusiasm he shared.

Awesome presentation. Now I want to automate everything! Love David's passion for new technologies and their potential!

I wasn't dazzled by the toys. Ninety percent of this talk was irrelevant to anything I'm likely to ever do. Not that informative.

Loved this talk!! So much fun stuff, tons of potential. My only complaint was not with the talk itself, but with whoever was deciding to switch between the camera and the presenter's slides on the screens. They often switched away from a slide after only a few seconds, or switched away from the demo so we couldn't see what his gestures were actually accomplishing. The talk itself was fantastic.

This was an awesome talk, showing a lot of the cool gadgets we have all been drooling over lately. I'd really love to see more fun and lively keynotes like this at ZendCon in the future. You could tell David is genuinely passionate and excited about the various technologies he showed us, and he managed to easily keep everyone in the audience engaged the entire time.

Very engaging talk about the state-of-the-art devices available today and what we can look forward to as they become ubiquitous and entirely open for developers to work with. A refreshing change of subject that helped kick the day off nicely.

Great talk. No love for Insteon?

Can we have the slides too?

Was a bit different than what I expected. Felt it was fairly interesting and entertaining.

Very entertaining, he is very passionate and very knowledgeable about where technology is at. I like to keep up to date on new devices coming out, but he actually buys all those devices and tinkers with them!

While this presentation is full of a lot of cool concepts for devices and programming devices. It wasn't clear what the focus was.

Cool gadgets! Amazing many of these new devices are WS enabled!

Fun talk, lots of exciting new things to play with. Not sure it really made me grow as a developer, but entertaining nonethelesss.

A keynote is meant to inspire and entertain, and this did both in droves. David is a charismatic and energetic speaker who captives me throughout.

Fun trip through not too expensive toy that can be leveraged into fun ways... David I has a lot of energy

I am sorry but I don't like tie die (I don't even know how to spell it), it makes me crazy but despite the tie die... This man is a great speaker.


This talk was awesome bridging the past from C64 and further back to crazy android based flying machines controlled with a phone.


David brought out the geeky inner child in the entire audience. We watched, enthralled with child like wonder, thinking things like "Could you imagine being a kid today having your own affordable remote control flying machine with cameras and programmable activators", and begs the question "What amazing things will our children create using these kind of technologies?"

ps. Did you work on Borland 3.5 (still my favourite C++ IDE)?

This was one of the best keynotes I've seen in ages - not only are the gadgets awesome and drool worthy, but the general overview of where computing has come from and where it is going is both awe inspiring and insightful

(and anyone who starts a talk with "I was programming in Fortran and assembly" rocks)

Fun talk.

Would have enjoyed seeing the classic gadgets of old alongside all the new toys.

Made me want to code right away.

I want his desk (and all its contents).

Worth waking up early in the morning for.

Excellent keynote. I would have loved to see what this hover craft could do! :)

The presentation was good and had some good energy to it. The discussions around current devices was definitely interesting and probably nudged some people to buy a few of the new toys.

I imagine this was like CES if it was held on one presenters desk. More electronics were tossed around in this presentation than an Asiana flight.

I didn't really get it. I guess I'm not that kind of developer.
