This post is not really so much about WWDC than it is about the concept of the World Wide Developers Conference.
First this unique event is very well located in San Francisco where the streets literally flow with talented young creative types eager to make their millions by coming up with the next best thing. Another key factor is that it is so near the halls of money and power not to mention it is on the rim of the Pacific Rim.
We all now realize thatthe engine that fuels and drives new technology industries such as mobility is development. This is no more evident than in the App explosion fueling the smartphone and tablet revolutions. In other words the Bay Area is where the action is and where innovation lives.
There is a blood in the streets battle going on to draw developers to platforms such as Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android, now, the once great Microsoft is making strong moves to get back in the game. The objective is to win over the developer base and here is where WWDC comes in.
In the next few days we can expect many new product announcements, company perks and fluffed up press releases.
There will be a number of live blogs reporting from the event that we should all monitor. I will wait until the end of the day to summarize and take comments. See you then.
