Free AltWWDC to run parallel to official Apple conference
Friday, April 26, 2013 @ 2:28pm

A free, unofficial developer event, AltWWDC, has been announced as running parallel to Apple's 2013 developer conference. Like WWDC, AltWWDC will be active June 10th through the 14th in San Francisco. The gathering is being hosted at the SF State Downtown Campus, only a block away from WWDC's venue, Moscone West.



A number of speakers have been scheduled to talk, such as NetNewsWire's Brent Simmons and Red Sweater's Daniel Jalkut. A keynote breakfast will let people watch Apple's WWDC event, and developers will also have access to daily lunches and a working space with Wi-Fi and coffee. Although entry to the event is free, attendees must print out tickets from the AltWWDC website. WWDC 2013 sold out in a record two minutes, in spite of the high cost of passes, and Apple's own promises that developers will be able to watch videos from the conference while it's ongoing. That's likely connected to Apple's pledge to debut beta versions of both iOS 7 and OS X 10.9, making it important to get early access to both training and the software.
