We’re back from WWDC and today we take a look at the enormous number of changes that were announced during the conference and how we think that those changes will affect our businesses. We start with our general impressions of the WWDC, then quickly move to our thoughts on what qualifies as the most significant announcement of the conference. And there was a lot to choose from. An entirely new programming language was announced as well as a number of changes to the iTunes Store that developers have been requesting for a long time. We reflect on the impact that this WWDC has had on the general mood of the developer community, and then close by considering whether attending WWDC was worth the time and expense from a business development perspective.
