My bags are packed and in less than 24 hours I'll be in the air on my way to San Jose! ✈️

Whether you're going to be at one of the full length conferences (WWDC, AltConf, NextDoor or Layers), one of the shorter events (try! Swift), watching the keynote online either through the official page, the official app or through the recently updated WWDC.io app or at one of the countless other events that are happening all over the world (like this one in London) I hope you all have a great week! Let's meet back here next week to recap it all?

I'm going to be starting my week in California with a pre-keynote #noqueue breakfast and I'll also be attending some of the runs being organised throughout the week over at WWDC.run. As for the evenings, there's the WWDC Parties app to fill up your schedule.

If you're going to be in the area, I'd like to highlight two great ways to meet and socialise with people next week which is by far the most important reason you're there. First is WWDC.family which is location sharing for everyone at the conference. Also, Beacon which was launched last year for impromptu events. I'll be using both!

Let's wrap this up with some great advice from Tyler Fox. Actually, I'm going to slightly modify his advice. No matter your career plans, if you're lucky enough to be inside the convention centre go and spend time in labs with the engineers of the frameworks you're interested in. I've lost count of the amount of positive things that have happened that started with a lab conversation. In fact, I'm sure that the first time I met Tyler was doing exactly that. Even if you're not inside the main event, make sure you meet and spend time all of the other engineers, designers and other people involved with iOS who'll be in the city that week. Come back from the conference thinking "Wow, I can't believe how many amazing people I met".

Oh and if you see me, please do come up and say Hi! 👋
