OpenIDDevCamp was a gathering to develop web-based applications that use OpenID. Attendees included web designers, developers and testers all working together over the weekend to enable OpenID on their sites or just learn more about this technology. Scott joined Phil to discus the event as well as the OpenID concept. He talked about the structure of the camp as well as the background of OpenID, including such topics as OpenID usability and best practices, data portability, and the OpenID 2.0 specification.
