WWDC 2012

Propellerheads at WWDC 2012!

 

Finn, Fredrik and I went to WWDC (Apple Worldwide Developers Conference) in San Francisco this year!

 

It turns out there is a long tradition of lining up outside the convention center in the middle of the night so you can get in to the key note that kicks off the conference. Apple staff is handing out soup etc. during the night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we got there at 9am there was a queue around the block. Police officers were watching over things to prevent a large scale geek-stompede.

 

Finn had a slight problem changing the name name on his badge from "Finn Nathorst Boos", because Ernst had paid his ticket(?).

 

From my CTO perspective one of the biggest news from the key note was retina Macs. I've been waiting for high-resolution screens to appear for a long time and it looks fantastic, but supporting it properly will require a lot of work for us and all other Mac developers.

 

The conference was extremely well organized and relaxed with about 100 sessions and labs on iOS and OS X development.

 

It was kind of ironic that there was the same number of restrooms for men and women.

 

We got to hang out with a lot of cool people, both old and new friends!

Tuesday afternoon Ryan took us to Lucas Arts and ILM for a tour! His brother works at Lucas Arts! I got to touch the real R2D2!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday night was the WWDC bash with food and drinks and a band playing. The singer called it a sausage party :-)
