WWDC 2012 Twitter open house announced, sells out

updated 06:50 pm EDT, Fri June 1, 2012

Two talks at Twitter HQ, food, beer with dev teams

Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) starts up next week, and Twitter briefly had tickets available for an open house. The conference is described by Twitter's announcement as "tech talks, food and beer with our iOS and native applications engineering team!" The Twitter meet-and-greet is scheduled for the first day of WWDC on June 11 between 6:30 PM and 9:30 PM. At the time of this writing, no tickets are available, but more may become available between now and the conference.

Two conferences are planned with Twitter's iOS and native applications engineering team. The first addresses how the Twitter for iPhone team ships code, mistakes made along the way, and the road to where they are today. The second is a more generalist-programmer talk, dealing with the generalities of mobile-friendly API design. Specifically, how to deal with low-bandwidth networks, high-latency situations, and disconnected usage of the API. Twitter coders will share their experiences building mobile apps on a large scale, with the goal of providing users the best experience possible.

Apple's WWDC is scheduled for June 11 through June 15 in San Francisco at the Moscone West. Tickets for the event completely sold out in less than two hours. More than 1,000 Apple engineers are staffing labs to provide code-level assistance, provide guidance on optimal techniques for efficient development, and how to best implement iOS and OS X core technologies in code. All Apple technical sessions will be available at the Apple Developer website for free to registered members.
