Crowd Sourced WWDC Tips
Yesterday, I made a post enouraging people to consider going to WWDC, along with some tips on ways that you could save money doing so. I received lots of positive feedback, and I heard from a few that they were going to register because of it. That’s awesome!
I also got some good advice from other bay area natives on twitter. On food budget:
@alexcash @caseyliss What about free food in WWDC Parties?— Genady Okrain (@genadyo) April 21, 2016
Glenn Fleishman suggests that perhaps you could find a roommate:
~@jsnell @alexcash I wonder if anyone’s set up a room share? A room with two beds = 1/2 cost if you can consider staying w/a new friend!— Glenn Fleishman (@GlennF) April 21, 2016
This is a really neat idea for a website or app. A cool project someone could tackle next year. For those still making plans this year, maybe we could use a hashtag. I suggest #WWDCRoommateSearch
For saving on transit Courtney Wang suggests another taxi share similar to Uber pool called Lyft line.
Andreas Netzmann has had good luck staying at a hotel near SFO for the week of WWDC:
@jsnell @alexcash @davedelong The Dylan at SFO in Millbrae is decent, I took Caltrain from their to WWDC '13— Andreas Netzmann (@netzmann) April 21, 2016
Kyle S. recommends against Caltrain:
@thequinntaylor @jsnell @alexcash A friend regrets staying on the Peninsula last year. Inside the BART region might be workable compromise.— Kyle S. (@optshiftk) April 22, 2016
If you have any other experience to share, or ideas you think people should try, send them my way and I’ll keep this post updated. Nothing would make me more happy than if our tips enabled someone to attend.
