It’s WWDC time again, and that means plenty of chaos around tickets. Last year I totally lost track of who of my tech friends and idols did get a ticket and who didn’t. So I created a Google Doc spreadsheet, Glassboard and Twitter list to try to keep track of everyone.
This year, sadly I wasn’t one of the lucky few to get a WWDC ticket, however, I thought it was still worth creating another attendee list for this year as last year’s ended up with over 500 names on it and it turned out to be a really useful resource for developers attending the event to keep in touch.
If you’re a WWDC veteran or this is your first time attending, I hope this list will help you find out which of your friends are going to be heading to San Francisco in June.
If you are going to San Francisco this June, whether you managed to get a ticket or not, add your details 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.
As I did last year, 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.
