WWDC 2012 Pilgrimage to Apple HQ

Just a reminder: Once again this year, there will be a bus pilgrimage to Cupertino on Sunday, June 10, which is the day before WWDC starts. While the morning bus has sold out, there is still some room on the afternoon buses. If you have any thoughts of visiting the Apple campus, this is the best way to go if you don't have a car.  Hell, it's probably the best way to go even if you do have a car. Bay Area traffic is no fun, and we use big comfortable touring buses.

The Company Store will be open and you don't need a WWDC ticket to shop, so this is a great chance to stock up on Apple swag, including a whole lot of stuff that they won't be selling up at Moscone during the week. It's also a chance to get your picture taken in front of the Apple HQ sign. You'll get to hang out with several other Mac and iOS developer geeks and meet some people before the official WWDC craziness gets started. 

The last several years have been a blast. I think this is, what? The third annual WWDC Pilgrimage? Or is it the fourth? Either way, it's been great fun every year. If you're interested in going, the signup and information page is here

If you think you want to go, don't wait. This event has sold out every year so far and there's no reason to think this year will be different.
