We’re Stronger Together

As usual I spent the week of WWDC helping run AltConf. I think it’s super important we have a free, community focused event that week, and have loved being a part of it. Apple’s support of the community has really been amazing of late! This year we held a screening of “App: The Human Story” to…

Help Us Create the Mixtape of the Community

We’re trying something new. Every year we play music before the keynote, but that’s it, and it’s just whatever we find on Pandora. We’re going to fix that this year, and we want your help. Help us create the 360|iDev 2017 Playlist. Submit a song name and artist (and ideally a link to the song…

360|iDev 2016 Recap

360|iDev 2016, was awesome! New venue, new and old faces. So much fun! Can’t wait for next year! Nicole and I left the Grand Hyatt on Wednesday so jazzed. I love seeing everyone, I love having a chance to meet new members of the community, and give something very special back to the iOS/Mac Developer…

Session Recording, an Evolution

Recording conference sessions is one of those things that everyone seems to have their own way of doing it. When we started, we had Flipcams on tripods in the middle of the room. Better than nothing, but only just. Under the best circumstances they captured grainy video and average audio. Under the worst they captured…

Why Eat indoors?

Two years ago we started something new. We cancelled lunch talks, we gave attendees vouchers for local (locally owned when possible) restaurants. We sent attendees out into Downtown Denver to enjoy a tiny sliver of what Denver has to offer. It’s now tradition. This year, Civic Center Eats has expanded it’s hours, which means, we…

Diversity Scholarship Program

Over the years we’ve been trying to increase the diversity and inclusivity of 360|iDev. It’s not an easy thing, but it’s so, so worth it. Each year we make tweaks to the conference itself, or how we do things in the back end, etc. Each year (I hope) we get a little better. While I’d love…

WWDC Dates announced!

Well, it’s that time! Apple has announced the dates and info for WWDC 2016. If you’re applying for the ticket lottery, may the odds be forever in your favor, but just know you’ve got options. Lots of really awesome options. We’ve joined with some awesome indie events to offer a 10% discount, good for the next…

Help Close Caption/Subtitle 360|iDev session recordings

So I was talking to Mike Lee about his recording (which we hope to release soon), and he suggested adding closed caption/subtitles to the recordings. Honestly it wasn’t something I had really thought about, but love the idea of. I knew Youtube had some type of automatic thing, but wasn’t sure if Vimeo did. So…

360|iDev 2015, What a rush

Another year, another amazing 360|iDev. I’ve spent the last few days digesting everything that happened. It was amazing (I know, I already used that word), we all came together, 400 of us from all around the world, and spent four days sharing, learning, laughing. It was humbling to be surrounded by so many smart, cool,…

Scholarship passes available

We’ve got 2 passes, gifted by a speaker, and a sponsor that we’d like to give to someone who needs a little help. The hardest part of being 2 people running this, some stuff falls off the radar, awarding these passes is one of those things.   That said, with the time we have left…
