A Writer’s Full On Day

From seeing Michelle Obama talk in person to visiting Twitter headquarters and even being on the news, it has been one heck of a full on day for me here at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference. The morning began with a ‘fireside’ chat between Michelle Obama and Apple’s Lisa Jackson. They spoke candidly about what’s been going on with Michelle lately in addition to discussing advice for areas such as business, making an impact on the world, diversity in the app development world, inspiration for women and of course fun stories from the White House.

“Do not fall, at least not in front of the cameras. Because you will be a meme for the rest of your life.”

My day continued with a sudden but exciting interview with ABC 7 to discuss my reactions to what Michelle had to share.

Before the morning had finished, my friend and I made our way on into San Francisco. We we’re very privileged to be able to visit the headquarters for Twitter. I got to enjoy lunch from the amazing buffet of food and even enjoy a smoothie from the free smoothie bar!

It was certainly a most exciting second day here at WWDC. I’ll be spending the rest of the week getting hard to work on my projects with app development. I’ll be talking with engineers and experts from Apple and making the most out of the conference.

A Writer’s Big Day: WWDC 2017

I think it’s fair for me to say that I am more than ready for bed. It’s been a long day. Waking up at 5 in the morning to then stand in line for hours for a very fully packed morning at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference 2017. This is the second year in a row for me to be attending and as always the lining up was a little brutal.

The keynote address was full of wonderful nerdy goodness. I work as a developer making apps/games for iPhone. We got to see some awesome changes and also some awesome (again) new stuff. A new iPad, a freaking wow space grey iMac that is one heck of a machine. Then finally a speaker that has Siri built in. Something heavily rumoured, but released to much excitement for all us fanboys sitting in the audience.

Coming up in the week there’s some more interesting and exciting events including a special talk with Michelle Obama. I’ll be attending that one, for sure.
