Mobile Development Digest #26


WWDC 2016 announced and will take place in San Francisco, June 13-17. Alternatively, it’s possible to visit AltConf, that will run in parallel from 13 till 16 June. Last year, presentations from AltConf were really good. So, it’s not a second prize, but really good mobile alternative if you don’t have ticket to WWDC. I’ll be wonder if Sweden (okok! at least Europe) will run something similar.

It’s interesting that WWDC uses extensively “hello” that seems like referrer to THAT presentation of Mac with Steve Jobs.
