With HP's recent purchase of Palm, not only has Palm been revitalized, but the Pacific Northwest has gained new connections to Palm. HP has campus in Vancouver, WA. And one of Palm's own developer advocates, Joshua Marinacci, lives in Eugene.

Joshua is in town to attend OSCON and will be joining us to talk about Palm's webOS and mobile web technology. Here is a brief description of what Joshua will be talking about:

The core of the great smartphones by Palm Inc. is a brand new operating system called webOS. Built from pieces of the web, webOS is designed with the core features of the web in mind: sharing, linking, and easily developing applications with open standards like HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. In this session you'll learn an overview of webOS, the devices which run it, and an introduction to quickly programming webOS apps with web standards.
In addition, Joshua will touch on where Palm is headed and what opportunities there are for applications and services on webOS devices.
