iPhone SDK Beta 6
The latest drop of the iPhone SDK has just been released and I must say that so far it rocks! I’ve had to make only minimal updates to get my iPhone apps running on this latest drop and best of all the builds seem to be blistering fast. Well, they’re pretty darn fast anyway on a Mac Pro octo (8-core) but they really seem a lot (I mean a lot) faster than the last version. I would dig into the actual numbers but I don’t really have time for that right now.
I’ll be at WWDC again this year and I can’t wait. It should be a blast assuming that the sold out conference doesn’t take away from the overall experience. June is going to be one hectic month. I’ll be flying from Mexico back to Austin and then hopping on a plane 3 hours later for WWDC. A late arrival in San Fran will be followed by an early rise to sit in line for check-in and wait for the SteveNote. I’m a bit bummed that I’ll have to miss some Sunday night get togethers but c’est la vie. Post WWDC holds more travel as well but it’ll be more of a local nature.
If you’re going to be at WWDC drop me a line and maybe we can hook up for a beer or three.
The latest Mac Developer Roundtable covers some really great tips if you’re attending WWDC for the first time (or even if you’re a veteran). Marcus Zarra, Bill Dudney, John Chaffee and of course Scotty all provide some excellent insight into WWDC from an attendee perspective. Highly recommended.
