MacVoices #14148: Rob Elkin Profiles AltConf, The Alternative, Supplemental Event to WWDC

Rob Elkin  is again organizing a parallel event to Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. This year, it will be called AltConf, and is a follow-up to last year’s very successful AltWWDC. Rob talks about their new venues (yes, two of them) that will make this year even bigger and better. From the conference space that will host a variety of notable speakers to the Labs space which will feature and exhibitors area, AltConf will be a can’t miss event whether you have a WWDC ticket or not. Rob talks about how they found the venues, the funding, and the sense of community that AltConf helps create.
