#AltWWDC offers and alternative to developers who couldn't score a ticket to Apple's event

#AltWWDC is a free, independent alternative to Apple's WWDC 2013 scheduled to take place the same week, just down the street of Moscone Center at SF State Downtown Campus. Since WWDC 2013 sold out in under 2 minutes yesterday, AltWWDC could be of interest to anyone who didn't score a ticket to WWDC, but still plans to be in San Francisco that week and wants something more formal than just hanging out and bar hopping. Here's the abstract from the AltWWDC:

Join us for AltWWDC - a free and open alternative to Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference - June 10th-14th, 2013. Five days of talks, food, co-working, and mingling with other developers all without the bar noise. Got a WWDC ticket? Didn't get a WWDC ticket? Doesn't matter - the conference happens outside the conference.

There are a bunch of great speakers lined up, including Including Mike Lee, Victor Agreda, Jr., Brett Terpstra, Brent Simmons, Saul Mora, and more. Registration is first-come, first-served, so if you're planning to be in SF the week of June 10, and it interests you, go sign up!
