WWDC day three

WWDC day three

Day three of WWDC 2012 was another busy day of meeting and interviewing developers and PR representatives, parties, and even a recording of an Iterate episode featuring some special guests.

Rene and I began our day with a delicious breakfast at Mel's Diner with App Savvy's Ken Yarmosh. We talked about Agenda, Buzz, other App Savvy projects and, of course, iOS 6.

After breakfast, we had a little time to kill, so we set up shop at Pete's Coffee to get some writing done.

If you recall, Rene rented a nice 70-200mm lens for Monday's keynote and it was time to say goodbye. We dropped it off at Rayko Photo Center before heading to Le Bolange Bakery to meet with Aaron and Brian from Appency.

Over hot chocolate, coffee, and pastries, Aaron and Brian showed us a few new apps. One of them is this really cool social trivia game called Quizboard [Free - Download Now] and another was VideoFyMe, a great app for sharing your videos to your blog with the opportunity to earn some money at the same time [Free - Download Now]. Videos and reviews coming soon!

We also got to get a sneak peak at another app that's coming soon. We're not allowed to say anything about it -- except that it should be a big hit!

Unfortunately, we experienced some technical difficulties during our interviews the day before, and needed to re-interview David Barnard from App Cubby. We also snuck in an interview with Ken Yarmosh from App Savvy (they guy we went out to breakfast with).

Seth came along for the interviews before heading over to a session with Ken and David.

At this time, Rene and I headed to Starbucks to get some work done before heading over to a yummy Italian restaurant called Scala's Cafe with Denys from Readdle.

After lunch, Rene and I parted ways. Rene attended the Macworld party while I went back to my room to squeeze in some more writing before heading to the Touch Arcade party at Bin 55 in the Marriott.

I was able to do some socializing with various people in the industry including developers, PR, and bloggers.

Meanwhile, Rene and Seth were recording a special episode of Iterate with special guests Dave Wiskus from Black Pixel and Brad Ellis from Pacific Helm at the Park 55 hotel.

After spending some time at the Touch Arcade party, I decided to take a break from WWDC affairs and headed to Biscuit and Blues and enjoyed some good food and music with a couple friends of mine who were in town.

DUDE,
Use the lens hood on that 70-200, man. If you're going to spend the money, use it as it was designed. That's like using an underwater housing without the O rings.

Great pix, and awesome work covering WWDC! Great to chat with you guys briefly. Would be nice to try chasing you guys down again, but it's looking doubtful. Getting very, very close to a release...

Oh, and by the way, Peet's RULES! Not quite the artisinal quality of Blue Bottle, but vastly superior to Starbuck's. IMHO.
