Apple Announces iOS 7 Tech Talks

The company’s software engineers go on tour in major cities around the world

Apple developers who didn’t manage to attend this year’s WWDC now have a second chance to get together with Apple’s software engineers and exchange coding knowledge.

iOS 7 Tech Talks is now officially on tour with scheduled pit stops in major cities around the world, including San Francisco (as if WWDC hadn’t already camped out there), New York, Tokyo, Shanghai, Berlin, and London.

The tech talks will enable attendees to “get in-depth guidance about developing for iOS 7, learn practical coding tips and tricks, and obtain valuable one-on-one programming and design assistance.”

Interested parties must apply until 10 AM PDT on Friday, September 27 using their iOS Developer Program credentials. Applicants can also register using an iOS Developer Enterprise Program membership, and everyone must be 13 years of age or older.

“Attendees will be randomly selected from qualified applicants,” Apple says. Two events will be held per city, according to the Tech Talks page. One showcase will center around app developers and the other will be dedicated to game developers.

“You’ll choose to attend either the app developer day or the game developer day. You may only apply for one day at the iOS 7 Tech Talks,” says Apple.

The Cupertino giant urges applicants to refrain from making travel arrangements until their admission is confirmed. “We will let you know your status before your chosen event,” says the Mac maker.

As usual, any content presented at these events is subject to the Apple Developer Program agreements, meaning you won’t be allowed to take photos, shoot video, or engage in any type of live blogging.

“While all presentations will be in English, they will be simultaneously translated into Japanese in Tokyo and Mandarin in Shanghai,” Apple informs.

For those who can't make it to an event, Apple will be posting videos of the sessions shortly thereafter.
