If you didn't manage to get a WWDC ticket, it doesn't mean you can't come to San Francisco and join in the unofficial events for the week. Like last year, AltWWDC is running a week long alternative to WWDC with a place to work from and great lunchtime sessions with some excellent speakers. Even better, this year the venue is only one block from Moscone so even if you do have an official ticket you might want to drop in and join in with some of the fun.
