WWDC and Thee

June 5, 2009

Amidst the ever-increasing cacophony of iPhone rumors, our attention turns once again to Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco, CA. Like the annual migration of swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano, Moscone Center calls to Mac geeks far and wide to congregate, party and oh yes, learn something.

This year, the Iconfactory is sending a new initiate to the conference, our very own Anthony Piraino. Anthony will join the usual crew of Craig and Corey to puzzle out the latest iPhone APIs, compete for title of WWDC fashion king, and eat sub-par boxed lunches.

The guys will be sure to be hanging around with our friend and development partner Wolfgang Ante of ARTIS Software, as well as the talented crew from DS Media Labs. If you follow the Iconfactory on Twitter, than you already know we’ve been working with the DS guys on our “next big thing”, a new game for the iPhone called Ramp Champ. We can’t say too much about this exciting new software just yet, but if you’ll be at WWDC, find one of the IF or DS guys and whisper the secret phrase to them – “I’m a Ramp Champ, not a Ramp Gramp!” If you repeat the phrase correctly, they’ll give you a quick one-on-one demo of the game, making you the envy of all your friends and relatives.

We wish all the developers attending WWDC a safe and eventful journey. If the fates smile upon us, we’ll learn about a brand new iPhone, get Snow Leopard details and hear from Steve Jobs himself. A Mac geek can dream!
