WWDC Digital Lounges: How to View and Register
WWDC 2021 is a week away and ahead of this year’s fully virtual event, Apple has opened registration for the new limited digital shows to connect with Apple engineers and designers. We’ll also see how to sign up for Individual Dev Labs, the new Pavilions feature, and more.
WWDC Digital Lounges
Apple developers, corporate developers, or WWDC Swift Student Challenge winners can take advantage of the new digital lounges. Here’s how Apple describes the new WWDC feature:
Join Apple engineers and designers throughout the week as they host text-based Q&A and special events related to Developer Tools, SwiftUI, Accessibility, and Machine Learning. A small number of digital shows are offered for the first time this year and attendance is limited.
Apple opened registration for Digital Lounges today with four categories: Accessibility, Developer Tools, Machine Learning, and SwiftUI. If you are interested, register now as Apple says places are limited.
It looks like the new digital lounges will work through Slack:
Meanwhile, 1-on-1 Labs will also be available to Apple Developers, Enterprise Developers, and Student Challenge winners.
Throughout the week of the conference, you can request a meeting with an engineer, designer, or other Apple expert for one-on-one advice. Get answers to your questions about implementing, optimizing, or debugging the technologies you use in your application. Learn about the latest design principles, best practices, and design patterns. Find help getting the most out of your App Store presence, and more.
Registrations are not yet open for individual labs, but will be available here after the WWDC keynote on June 7. Lab requests will be accepted until 6:00 p.m. PT the day before the lab begins.
As availability is limited, requests will be reviewed and you will receive an email with your status. If you don’t get an appointment, you can still connect with Apple experts by posting your question on the Apple Developer Forums.
As we pointed out earlier, another new feature to help keep track of everything happening with Sessions, Labs, and Special Activities is something Apple calls Pavilions. Look for it in the Apple Developer app next week.
Apple also highlights developer forums to connect with others, including more than 1,000 Apple engineers. And there’s also a dedicated “Beyond WWDC” page that includes more ways to get involved and connect with other developers around the world with trivia, a community week and more. other third party events.
