“While we already have announced a stellar lineup for the first Code Conference — including General Motors CEO Mary Barra, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Hollywood mogul Ryan Seacrest — here’s another pair to add to the mix: Top Apple execs Craig Federighi and Eddy Cue,” Kara Swisher reports for Re/code. “They will headline our second night at the event in late May.”
“Apple has been an important part of our tech conferences for a long time now — this is actually the 12th that Walt Mossberg and I will mount,” Swisher reports. “We had the late Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs onstage many times in memorable interviews, including a joint one with Microsoft’s Bill Gates. More recently, we had current CEO Tim Cook, who talked about his vision for the legendary Silicon Valley tech company.”
“We are very excited to have both Cue and Federighi at the event to talk about a range of things about the company that remains at the center of the action, especially in the important mobile sector. From the shifting entertainment and communications landscape to the fast-moving wearables space to, well, everything digital, these two play a very important role,” Swisher reports. “While the event has been sold out, we will be posting news, as well as videos, on Re/code throughout the Code Conference, including this interview.”
