Every other conference in the world announces its date and location at least a year in advance, but year after year, Mac developers wait around to hear when Apple’s World-Wide Developer Conference will be held. WWDC is usually held in the summer, and the date for this year has still not been announced. So I have an announcement:
I will be at the beach Jun 6 – 13. If Apple decides to hold WWDC that week, I will not be there.
We reserved a big beach house for that week with another family six months ago. I would have worked around WWDC if I known when it was to be held, but it is too late to change my plans now.
My advice: If you ever plan a conference for thousands of people, I suggest you announce the date and location a year or more in advance.
I disagree with the “year or more” portion, but 4 – 8 weeks more lead time would be an improvement.
