Apple’s annual World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) is not only a key education and outreach event for Apple’s army of third-party developers, it’s also become one of its main events for announcing new products.

Get Your Unofficial WWDC 2020 Pins on Kickstarter

· Andrew Orr · Cool Stuff Found

Do you miss getting WWDC pins? There’s a Kickstarter campaign selling an unofficial pin set comprised of six designs.

High quality enamel pins are not difficult to get manufactured on time and within budget. The biggest risk is the short timeline we have until WWDC starts. We’ve requested expedition from the manufacturer, but if that isn’t possible then the deliver date could slip into August. Like the software engineers that we are, we’re optimistic that we can meet our estimates and we have no problem estimating aggressively in the face of limitations that are out of our control.

This is a cool project. Pledge US$10 to get 1 random pin, with more reward tiers available. Apparently, Rene Ritchie (formerly of iMore ) has a custom pin included in this project.
