See you at WWDC 2008

Every year around this time a mass migration occurs around the world. Large numbers of Mac developers make the long arduous journey to San Francisco to gather, learn, network, and socialize.

This year I make my own way to join this strange ritual for the first time.

It’s time for Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC). A solid week of full emersion in all things Mac and iPhone.

I’m looking forward to finally meeting many people I’ve previously only known through following their Twitter feeds, reading their blogs, using their software, or chatting with them in IRC. It’s a strange business we’re in where most of our contacts are strictly via electronic means.

With MacBook Pro, iPhone, and code in hand; I’m off.
