WWDC 2012 Preparation

May 21, 2012 by Bill Dudney

WWDC is one giant fire hose of knowledge. From Monday through Friday it's non-stop cool demo and amazing content. To get the most out of the sessions it's often helpful to go in with at least a passing familiarity with the content so your brain has some pre-processing done on the info and has some hooks to hang the new info on. To that end I offer a list of my favorite WWDC sessions from 2011. You can watch them on-line or download them to iTunes and sync them for watching on the flight in.

Of course since the content is going to be downloadable shortly after the show so the most important thing is not the sessions. Make sure to read Jeff's guide. He has a ton of practical advice on how to survive/thrive at WWDC.

Bill, i just check your Core Graphics presentation at wwdc 2011. I really loved. Thanks. You are the best teaching stuff like that.

I'm also wandering how to get the source code, specially of your simple stock app, and more generally of the rest of wwdc samples. The problem is that they were not published at adc, perhaps they are available for attendees, but i was not able to attend. I have no problem to buy tickets to access the source code if needed, but that's also not a solution (because there is no way to buy tickets to gain access to the wwdc 2011 section of adc). The question is, do you know if there is any chance to get the source code.

Thanks in advance.
