PhoneGap EU Day 2012
Friday 14 Sep 2012, Compagnietheater Amsterdam
In the year since 1.0 was released, there have been 10,000,000+ visits to phonegap.com, and 1,000,000+ downloads of the phonegap software. build.phonegap.com, the automated build service (so you don't have to compile all the different targets yourself) has 100,000 users, and is due for a formal release "soon."
Regarding naming confusion, "Cordova" is the Open Source project, owned by the Apache foundation, and "PhoneGap" is Adobe's distribution. (Just like "Linux" is the core Open Source project, and "Ubuntu" is a distribution of it.)
