“As many have pointed out, Apple’s mark in the technology world has grown over the past decade, especially following the release of its iOS dynamic duo, iPhone and iPad,” David Morgenstern reports for ZDNet. “However, the size of its Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) hasn’t kept pace. This year, the tickets sold out in minutes, not in hours.”
“The problem of seat availability and community networking hasn’t gone unnoticed by developers,” Morgenstern reports. “Some have brought forward solutions”
Morgenstern opines, “As I have mentioned before, Apple has three major hardware/software platforms on the market and is one of the biggest computing platform companies in the world, yet it only offers a single one developer conference. Yes, the Tech Talks are a good idea. However, Apple needs to address the needs of differences in geographic and market segments and how that plays out within each of its target platforms.”
