Apple's iOS 5 Tech Talk World Tour 2011 coming to 9 cities worldwide

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Apple has confirmed that it will bring back its Tech Talk World tour this year, with the iOS 5-focused tutorials coming to nine cities between November and January.

Apple has launched a page for the Tech Talk World Tour 2011 where developers can sign up for the limited-space events. All iOS Developer Program members are eligible to attend.

Because of limited space, Apple said that priority will be given to developers who have an application available on the iOS App Store. The tour will kick off on Nov. 2 in Berlin, and spans three continents: Europe, Asia and the Americas, with three stops in the U.S.

"We're taking iOS 5 on a world tour and we want you to come along for the ride," the site reads. "Learn from experts as you take your apps to the next level with exciting new technologies in iOS. Space is limited, so register today."

The full list of dates and locations follows:
Berlin, Germany - November 2, Maritim ProArte Hotel Berlin
London, United Kingdom - November 7, Kings Place
Rome, Italy - November 9, Rome Marriott Park Hotel
Beijing, China - December 5, Renaissance Beijing Capital Hotel
Seoul, South Korea - December 8, Kintex
São Paolo, Brazil - January 9, Sheraton São Paulo WTC
New York City, New York - January 13, Millennium Broadway Hotel Times Square
Seattle, Washington - January 18, Hilton Seattle Airport and Conference Center
Austin, Texas - January 23, Austin Convention Center


The agenda for the events includes a kickoff starting at 9:00 a.m., leading into a class on iPhone and iPad user interface design at 10:00. Developers will learn about adopting iCloud Storage at 11:00 before a lunch break. In the afternoon, classes will divide into three rooms where they can learn about different iOS features like Newsstand, AirPlay, Game Center, iBooks, printing support and more. The day caps off at 6:00 p.m. with wine and cheese.

For those who can get in, the conference is free. Developers simply register with the Apple ID associated with their iOS Developer Program Membership.

It was rumored in July that Apple would bring back its Tech Talk World Tour for iOS 5. The previous events were held in 2008 and 2009, but Apple did not the event last year.

Tech Talk World Tour is like a mini-Worldwide Developers Conference, with track sessions featuring presentations for developers. Rather than requiring developers to fly to San Francisco, Calif., for WWDC, Apple brings the sessions to them.

There are no California sites because we just had the WWDC here not long ago, which has far more capacity than any of these other events. These are to reach developers that can't make it to the WWDC either because they couldn't get tickets or couldn't travel.

Registered for the Austin event. So sweet that it's only a two hour drive. I always wanted to go WWDC but it's hard to fit it into my schedule.

Grr. Unfortunately Austin and New York are both about 12/13 hours away... Why can't they do one in Atlanta? Please? maybe next year.

Good to see São Paulo listed there - Brazil is one of the biggest soon-to-be-tapped markets for Apple, especially once Foxconn starts producing devices in earnest down there, with much lower taxes..!

I wish they'd do WWDC in multiple cities.

I just saw the e-mail now and signed in right away, NYC is full already. Can't believe I missed it!

I'm guessing they picked the cities based on where developers are. Although I still would have expected at least one in Sydney. I mean, there's only the one in the Southern Hemisphere, and Brazil is kind of difficult to get to, as are the Asian ones.

It was full when I checked an hour ago too. I think they underestimated the popularity of these events. Hopefully there'll be a second round of dates announced at some point.

Insanity. There are thousands of devs in LA and SF who would be eager to attend this. Me, for one.

It's a waste of money. If people want to learn about the platform let them use the developer website. Apple should be trying to stay lean and mean in these times.

These events are more than just training for developers. They generate interest in the iOS platform plus they help people who are doing development connect with each other and find opportunities. I think they're a significant factor in the growth experienced by the iOS platform.

You should get in touch with Apple, I'm sure they have no idea what they're doing and can greatly use your deep insight. You should let them know quick so they can shut down the program and let everyone know.

Incredible how people can say such a statement with such hubris, as if you have any idea what Apple should and shouldn't spend their money on.
