WOWODC West 2009

WOWODC West 2009 will occur the weekend preceding WWDC (June 6-7) in San Francisco. From where I sit it looks like it’s going to be amazing. I’ve been talking to Pascal and the presenters list looks stellar (and I’m not saying that just ’cause I’m on it).

Like WWDC, I find WOWODC as valuable for the people and contacts I get to make as they are for the session content, but I have to say I’m pretty jazzed about the sessions at WOWODC West this year. I’m also glad that the community has been able to step up and fill in the gap left by WebObject’s anemic showing in the official WWDC’s sessions.

If you work with WebObjects I think you really owe it to yourself to attend WOWODC West this year. Full details are available on the WOCommunity website. If you are thinking of attending, book soon, the early bird pricing (a $50 savings) ends May 6th.

See you there!


In no particular order, some of my favorite things:

WWDC08 Sold Out

The news that WWDC has sold out is causing some consternation in the Apple Dev community. The unexpected news (due to the rising popularity of the platform and the introduction of the new iPhone track at WWDC?) has caught a number of developers off guard. Accustom in past years of being able to register right up to the last minute, many are now scrambling to find tickets.

I’ve read several posts to various dev lists in the past hour containing plaintive pleas for anyone offering WWDC tickets to sell.


Mark your calendar! WOWODC 2008‘s second annual WebObjects developers conference is taking place the weekend before WWDC at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco.

Pascal Robert (who has done an amazing job pulling this all together) tells me we have an incredible roster of presenters and sessions lined up for the this year. If last years conference is anything to go by, it should be a rip-roaring good time.
