This week saw Apple announce a few more details about the in-person portion of this year’s WWDC.

Even though these words make no appearance on the page, I love how the URL to the page ends in “special-day”, and I’m sure it will be exactly that for those that attend. The circumstances mean that it will almost certainly be a unique event.

I won’t be applying for a ticket or travelling the 6,000 miles it’d take for me to set foot inside Apple Park, but I’m still glad there’s an in-person aspect to the conference this year. Meeting in-person can never be as equitable as an online-only conference. However, I still hope that thousands of developers gathering in California once a year becomes a regular part of the calendar again.

If you live a little closer to Cupertino or are willing to travel, Apple will allocate the (presumably free) tickets via a lottery on Monday or Tuesday. Apple will then distribute the tickets on Wednesday, so it’s all going to happen fast!

As for the mention of the “Developer Centre” everyone is talking about, I’m not even going to speculate. It could be anything from a temporary marquee next to the Apple Park rainbow to a secret underground lair where Apple executives cater to your every need as a developer. 😂 We’ll have to wait and see! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the underground lair.

Oh, and the organisers over at WWDC Community event have announced they’ll again be hosting an online-only event and are looking for volunteers if you want to help out!
