It’s almost time for WWDC! 🎉Wait. What? It’s October. What’s happening? 🤔

As you’ll no doubt have seen by now, Apple announced a set of virtual Tech Talks this week. Similarly to the in-person Tech Talks of previous years, the schedule shows that the talks will be region-specific, just like the in-person events were.

Why would region matter for an online event? It appears that the sessions will be in some way interactive, so the timezone matters! The official Tech Talks page says:

Our live sessions can help you integrate the latest technologies into your apps, learn techniques and best practices, and get your questions answered in a group setting.

This tweet from Betsy Langowski confirms that there will be external Q&A of some kind. I have no details about how that will work, but we’ve not had Q&A even at the in-person events for many years, so it’s a little surprising they’re bringing it back for a virtual event! I guess they’ll take questions before the session, vet them and have someone from Apple ask the questions to a panel. We’ll find out!

There’s more, though. Like WWDC, there are labs, or “Office Hours”, as they’re referred to here. You can schedule a thirty-minute consultation with a whole host of teams and ask questions specific to your apps. Appointments will get booked up fast, so don’t delay when sign-up opens.

The most frequent request from the community after every WWDC is for more WWDC! I’m classing these events as exactly that, and that’s great news! 🚀
