Twitter announced an open house event session during the WWDC, which will be thrown by Twitter’s Mobile and Engineering teams. The event will be centered around tech talks, with food and beer, and attendees are limited, and guess what? It’s already sold out.
Two talks will be given at the event, one by Ben Sandofsky, Twitter’s lead on Twitter for iPhone, iPad, and Mac, and the other will be given by Chris Mitra, and engineer on the iOS team.
TNW says: “Sandofsky’s talk, titled ‘Ship it!’, is centered around learning ‘how the Twitter for iPhone team ships code’. Mitra’s talk, entitled Patterns for Mobile-Friendly API Design, is described this way: ‘Mobile applications have a number of constraints which impact how they integrate with back-end systems via web service APIs. Lower-bandwidth networks, higher round-trip latency and intermittent disconnected usage are just a few of the factors that contribute to a mobile app’s unique role in a distributed system. We plan to share our experience building mobile applications at large scale for Twitter and discuss a set of pragmatic patterns which can be applied to network API design to increase efficiency, robustness and testability of apps that rely on them, with an ultimate goal of providing the best experience for end users.’
If you’re a Twitter-ecosystem developer who will be in town for WWDC, you might want to keep an eye on the website here, as there may be tickets that become available, and you can get your name on the waitlist.
The “Open House” session is set to take place the opening day of WWDC on June 11 at 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
