UPDATE #1 (31st May 2017): Added section regarding updated WWDC app.
Apple has announced yesterday that they will be doing a live stream of their opening keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) like they do every year, but this year it is held from June 5-9 at San Jose McEnery Convention Centre, which they haven’t held a WWDC conference at since 2002.
Now you may be asking, why San Jose instead of San Francisco?
Apple’s SVP of Marketing Phil Schiller said that the venue is about the same size as Moscone Center in San Francisco, but have no other reason as to why the change, but it is a lot closer to Apple’s campuses which will make it easier for the 1000 Apple engineers to get to and from the conference.
What got me thinking about this is that when they do a change in venues from their regular routine, their is likely a reason for doing so, more so than just convenience of to host more people, or ease of travel etc.
