Apple today has promoted alternate developer events taking place alongside WWDC 2016, saying “a variety of other exciting developer events will take place throughout the week in San Francisco. If you’re attending the conference or will be in the area during WWDC, learn about these other developer events.”
The result is Apple’s WWDC developer page now highlights AltConf 2016, Layers, Beard Bash 2016 and The Talk Show with John Gruber. Last year, The Talk Show saw Apple VP Phil Schiller as its surprise live special guest.
Also last year, Apple initially barred the alternative developer conference, AltConf, from streaming the WWDC Keynote live, but eventually the iPhone maker changed its mind and allowed permission for the broadcast.
WWDC 2016 is set to kick off on Monday, June 13, with the keynote taking place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, in San Francisco.
