iOS developer appletv worldwide talks – SYDNEY 3/2/2016

It’s rare that Apple do worldwide dev tours these days – last time I can remember a session in Australia was like 2008/9 so this is worthwhile.

SYDNEY – 3rd Feb 2016

Sure the focus is AppleTV but for any iOS developer in Australia (or Worldwide) a session like this is worth attending.
