WWDC is upon us again! For the last couple of years I’ve created a Google Doc spreadsheet, Glassboard and Twitter list to try to keep track of everyone that is going – I find it easy in all the ticket chaos to lose track of who of my tech friends and idols did get a ticket and who didn’t.
This year, fortunately I am one of the lucky few who got a WWDC ticket, so I’ve decided to create another attendee list of 2015 as the previous years 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 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 last two years I created a Glassboard for attendees to use as a place to chat, share plans, party details, etc. Sadly, Glassboard is no more, so this year I’ve decided to go with everyone’s favourite team communication app, Slack.

One last bit of fun. As I did the last two 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.
