WWDC is only 1 month away, and just like the last few years the (unofficial) WWDC Attendee List and Slack chat is back again! What started as a way for me to keep track of who of my tech friends and idols did get a ticket and who didn’t, has turned into a useful resource for attendees planning their trips to San Francisco.
Last year we ended up with nearly 500 names on the list and almost 1000 people in the Slack chat, so let’s try to beat that this year. Sadly I won’t be making the pilgrimage to The City by the Bay this year – the crazy hotel prices were just too much for me to stomach, especially considering how much will be streamed live. But I will be hanging out in the Slack chat with everyone else so feel free to join us even if you aren’t going either.
If you are going to San Francisco this June, whether you managed to get a ticket or not, add your details to the attendee list with this form, then share the link with anyone else you know who is going. You can view the full list here. I will try to add everyone who adds their name to the list to a Twitter list as well.
The Slack chat is a place for everyone who’s interested in WWDC, whether you’re attending or watching at home. It’s a great place to share plans, tips and tricks, party details, etc. There’s already over 40 channels set up for everything including first timers, women attendees, language specific, parties, survival tips and more.

One last bit of fun. As I did the last three years, I will also try to keep track of everyone that adds their details to the list on a map. I will use the Twitter usernames people provide to lookup the locations entered on their Twitter profiles. Some people put some interesting things as their locations so some pins may be a little off. The map is also not auto-updating so I’ll probably periodically regenerate it as the list grows.
