today announced that it will continue with its previously scheduled dates in June, despite the recent WWDC 2003 date change by Apple: "Speakers, sessions, travel plans, people have had arrangements in place for months now. Our dates may make it difficult for some to attend both conferences, and we intend to work with them to find ways for them to continue to participate. MacHackoffers many things to attendees beyond what they can learn at WWDC. There is plenty of expertise in a lot of areas committed to a strong MacHack." The press release quotes the MacHack chairman: "What Apple says at the Worldwide Developer Conference is all nice theory, how things should work; what our sessions do is delve into how things _do_ work. Sessions like these provide the return on investment for companies and individuals." MacHack 18 takes place June 19-21, 2003, while WWDC 2003 was rescheduled (after dates and registration deadlines had been announced) for June 23-27, in San Francisco.
