O'Reilly has organized a new conference called iPhoneLive aimed at iPhone developers, entrepreneurs and enthusiasts, focusing on both the business and development issues surrounding the iPhone platform.

iPhoneLive will be a gathering of the best and brightest participants in the iPhone ecosystem today. Whether you're already building apps for the iPhone or are a developer who wants to make a move to the iPhone platform; if you're an entrepreneur or simply an enthusiast of the emerging iPhone industry, this is the event for you.

The one day conference takes place on November 18th in San Jose, California and has assembled an impressive list of speakers. Some names that might be familiar to our readers include Steve Demeter (author of Trism) and Neil Young of ng:moco.

Unfortunately, Apple's ongoing iPhone SDK non-disclosure agreement may hamper some more detailed discussion. If the NDA remains in place at the time of the conference, O'Reilly states that topics will focus on publicly available pieces of the iPhone SDK. Early registration is currently available at $625 before October 14th.

    If you're developing iPhone apps and have access to the SDK, then you've already under NDA, right? People who are under NDA are allowed to talk to each other about the SDK.

    It seems like if they want to, they could have a developer track limited to those who are under NDA. However, that, of course, is very much up to them.

    (Yes, I think keeping the SDK under NDA at this point is silly. However, it's about as silly to perpetuate the myth that you can't talk about the SDK with anyone. You can't talk about it with someone who isn't also under that NDA.)
