Moscone West WWDC10 at night

Wow. That was a great week! It’s been roughly a month since I went to San Francisco to attend Apples Worldwide Developers Conference 2010, going down in Moscone West from June 7 to June 11.

I flew into San Francisco on Friday, June 4th and had a nice look around the city at the weekend before getting into WWDC on Monday. WWDC started off with a keynote by Steve Jobs. Doors opened on Monday morning at 7am, full 3 hours before the Keynote kicked off. So I thought getting there right at 7 would be fine. But people are actually more mad about seeing Steve Jobs than 15 years old girls for Tokio Hotel. They must have been queueing all night to get in first. At the time I got there, there was a full queue around the Moscone West building. Everyone was playing nice and queued up. The atmosphere was really welcoming and friendly. Since I was on my own I got lucky and could enter the building quite early and ended up getting a seat in the very front of the Presidio room where the keynote happened. It was a great experience to attend a Ketnote for real once. Basically you can feel how excited everyone in that room is, which is a very unique atmosphere for a press event.

After the keynote a busy week full of great sessions started. They are all covered by the developer NDA so I can’t really write much about them. But I can say that I saw and learned some really neat things about HTML5!

After WWDC I had one more day in San Francisco which I used to visit Alcatraz and the SF Bay Aquarium. Then I flew back on Sunday where I met a few another German iOS developers who where on the same flight back to Munich.

iPhone 3G S

iPhone 3GS

I’ve been waiting 2 years for this. And now it was time. Unlocked goodness so I can freely travel. As with all Apple product it’s good to wait for the 3rd product generation. Most of the features that make my life much easier, such as CalDAV and LDAP support, were just coming with the 3.0 update.

I got the iPhone 3G S iPhone 3GS (like 3GS better and Apple seems to change it too) (32GB white) 2 days ago, June 20th 09. Since then I’ve been playing around and I’m quite happy about the new possibilities. Over the next few days I’ll be updating my data plans so I can make full use of it’s 3G capabilities in Austria and Germany.

The next step will be software development for the iPhone. First Webapps and later CocoaTouch apps.

iPhone, here I come!

Mac OS X Leopard Server Disk

This article is related to 24 hours of Mac OS X Leopard Server.

After 72 hours everything is different…

Eventually I got the Web, Wiki and iCal Server to work. The folders to store the content of the services haven’t had the right rights to get accessed by the services.

So far the Wiki and iCal Server look very good! Excellent ajax interface for the wiki server which makes formatting posts and attaching files enjoyable. The same for iCal. Very impressive.

Unfortunately AFP does crash now every time a client tries to connect. Not only that AFP crashes, it also brings the whole server down. I didn’t change any setting for AFP and can’t even look for a fix. Every time I try to connect with Server Admin the server crashes as well. Eventually my only choise:

Reinstall. Damn. Gonna be a long night. I hope 10.5.2 will make things easier.
