A couple of years ago I attended a lot of Apple events here in Sweden and I enjoyed it very much. It is somehow very nice to be around other Mac users and see the glowing Apple everywhere you look. To me all these events also were some kind of a water hole for me because I could go there as a woman. I guess I tested the waters a bit there and it was always very nice days. This Friday it was time again but now the main reason was of course to listen to rather advanced presentations about the development frameworks of the upcoming Mac OS 10.5 Leopard operating system. There were people brought in from abroad to give very detailed presentations about the new exciting API Core Animation as well as Open GL, XCode 3.0 and other new stuff. I can´t tell you more because we signed an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) to go there but I can tell you the future for Cocoa developers looks promising!
