For developers and prospective WWDC attendees who did not manage to secure a ticket during the two minutes they were on sale, there is an alternate event happening in San Francisco right near the Moscone Center.

AltWWDC is a free and open event that is designed to allow developers to meet and mingle. It features five days of talks from a range of well known developers like Daniel Jalkut of Red Sweater Software and NetNewsWire creator Brent Simmons.

altwwdc
The alternate conference takes place at the same time as Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, from June 10 to June 14. It is located at the SF State Downtown Campus, which is a block away from Moscone.

Along with speakers, AltWWDC will offer a keynote breakfast where live WWDC feeds will be displayed and lunch will be provided each day. A co-working space with WiFi and coffee will also be available.

Tickets for AltWWDC are free and can be obtained from the website.

This sounds like a great idea, not only for developers who couldn't get tickets but for the event in general. With free admission, it could help draw a huge attendance.
