This time tomorrow, I'll be somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean hurtling towards San Jose. ✈️ Yes, it's that time of year again, hold on tight… 🎢

There's a round up of what's going on down below so I'll keep this comment short, but I'll finish with a reminder that I love to meet new people at WWDC. Yes, the keynote is exciting, the labs are invaluable, and the sessions are educational. But the conversations I have and new friends I make are the reason I attend every year. So, if you see me around and want to say hello, please don't feel like it'll be weird because it won't. 👍

Or, if you'd like to say hello, and don't see me around then you can guarantee to bump into me at the App Marketing Lab that I'm running at AltConf on Tuesday. See you there!

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what the folks in Cupertino have been working on all year! 🚀

If you're going to be in San Jose in person, there's something for every taste, and budget (as long as you ignore accommodation prices 😬). Whether you're going to WWDC itself, AltConf, Layers or try! Swift, you're going to have a great week.

Like I said in this week's opening comment though, WWDC week in San Jose is so much better if you meet plenty of new people. So, whether you join people for a morning coffee, at one of the morning fitness events (either official, or unofficial), at a live podcast recording (there are too many to link), at a party (also too many). Or maybe you organise an impromptu get together yourself with ConfFriends? If you're looking for a good place to hang out in the city, there's also a decent guide here. It doesn't matter how or where, just make sure you make the most of your week! It can be hard to go up to a complete stranger and say hello, but I promise that 99.9% of the time it results in a positive experience.

But even if you're not there in person, that doesn't mean you need to be alone! There are AltConf Satellite conferences in London, Paris, Berlin, and Madrid. Or, if you can't make it to any of those, then there are all sorts of other "keynote watching" type events in cities all around the world. Enjoy the announcements with friends or make new ones, even if you're not in California.

Or, maybe none of that is possible this year and you're going to be following along completely remotely. There will be plenty coverage from the session videos, and on Twitter, but one site that I'll call out specifically is WWDC by Sundell. Yes, that's a new site, purely for covering the conference as it happens. There's already plenty of content there too, including an interview with me containing some of my thoughts about Marzipan and what I hope to see in Xcode 11. 🤞

Enjoy WWDC, and I'll be back next Friday with my take on it all. 🎢
