Should Apple Launch A Second WWDC?

Apple opened its first ever global app accelerator hub in Bangalore, India, this morning. A widening product mix and growing international developer community means not every developer can get the access and insights they need at its existing developer conference, WWDC.

Reflecting its expanding business and growing international developer community should Apple open a second WWDC event? Let us know what you think:

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

  1. There should only be 1 WWDC, but it could be hosted at multiple sites at the same time. With natural language engineers at each site (Chinese Engineers in China, Indian Engineers in India, etc), but the Keynote would be present in USA and broadcast at all the branch site WWDC. That would keep the WWDC as an mega attraction, but allow locals to attend nearby.

  2. Keep the WWDC and random selection. Protect it and all of its glory, but the labs at the WWDC could be expanded and on the road. The sessions are available but setup shop in Miami, Seattle, Denver, NYC, Boston on a quarterly basis with experts in communications with Cupertino Engineers. Also, put a couple in India, China, Japan, UK, EU, south pacific, South America, and Australia that meet every 6 months. Including the week after the big show WWDC. I have been writing iOS apps for 8 years and I am exploring new features with no documentation. I would integrate in some features, but need better documentation and engineers to talk to. I think Apple would benefit from this scheme also. They would hear about opportunities to explore. A win win… Apple could setup in convention centers with traveling semi trucks. An Apple High Tech Carnival with no elephants or tigers.
