Jim Dalrymple's Beard Bash is an institution WWDC-week in San Francisco, and this year iMore co-presented it!

Monday's at Apple's World Wide Developer Conference — WWDC 2016 are busy: There's the huge public keynote followed by an attempt to cover and podcast everything possible, the State of the Union keynote that dives into the developer details, and the Apple Design Awards. Then there's the Beard Bash.

This year iMore co-hosted the Beard Bash with Jim Dalrymple of The Loop at The Mezzanine in San Francisco, and it turned into a full-on night of rock.

Doors opened at 8pm and the lineup was already down the block and around the corner. All told, roughly 700 members of the community, including developers, media, and industry insiders joined us to party hard and cap off a tremendous opening day.

Two bands played, The Department of Rock, and longtime friends of iMore, Airplane mode, with an interlude featuring Dalrymple on the guitar.

We'll have more pictures and video soon, so check back!
