WWDC isn’t the only conference going on in June. There will be alternative WWDC conferences going on, such as the popular AltConf. Here are some events going on in the area of San Jose, California (via iMore).
AltConf was one of the first alternative WWDC conferences. It will take place at the San Jose Marriott Hotel, and it will stream the main Apple keynote as well as the Platforms State of the Union. AltConf runs from June 4 to June 7. The Mac Observer‘s Kelly Guimont will be on the Keynote reaction panel. Website: AltConf
The Layers Design Conference is a two-day event founded by ex-Apple employees. It was originally a conference for designers, but has since expanded, with talks about culture, leadership, social responsibility, and more. Layers runs from June 4 to June 6 and you can get a pass on the website. But if you belong to an “underrepresented industry group” you can get US$100 off a pass with the code REPRESENT.
