Started in February 2006 in Silicon Valley and now on its fifth edition, Mashup Camp -- the world's first and still the only event that's dedicated to the advancement and social networking of the software mashup community -- is coming to Europe. Mashup Camp's founders David Berlind and Doug Gold invite you to join them at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland for a two day crash course in mashup development (good for beginners too) and then for another two days of "unconference" style discussions, networking, hacking, contests, and entertainment. Mashup University which includes an introduction to mashup development and how-to presentations from API and technology providers, starts on Sept 10th and then Camp (the unconference part) runs for two days staring on Sept 12th.

The Results of the Business Mashup Challenge at Mashup Camp 4 have been posted. As you can see, some nice prizes were handed out to the contest winners.
