The dates were leaked a few weeks back, but now it's official. There's no other surprises yet: It's a lottery process, scholarships are open and of course it's still in San Jose. You have until the 20th to apply for a ticket. Go.
See you there, hopefully!
I'm sure you've seen this article from Corbin Dunn already, it has been widely linked this week. We've been complaining for years that Radar is a broken system for external developers, and this article confirms our fears on how these bugs slip through the cracks internally.
It's frustrating to read, and I've seen a few people announcing that they won't (or already don't) file radars because of how broken the system is. That's their choice of course, but I'm choosing to still file bugs where I can. Even a system as broken as this is still a system and it's the only official way we have of talking to the Apple development teams.
