    Hi Everyone

    Looking to go to WWDC this year (I'm a student in the UK) for the objective-c lessons etc. Just wondering also though - am I guaranteed access to the keynote? What is the arrangement for getting access?

    As has been stated before the keynote is on a first come first serve basis.

    Having a WWDC ticket does not guarantee access to the keynote.

    Yes, sorry to ask here, I was hoping for some other people to answer because I read differently online.

    The line is pretty crazy it more or less starts forming the night before.

    However like Peace said it isn't guaranteed but that is true of any of the sessions. When they are full that is it. Most years you can normally just sit along the wall and in some cases they have held duplicate sessions on Friday if a session was really popular during the week. A few years ago they got really strict in the sessions because of fire code occupancy limits(I think) but it seems they have relaxed on that a bit.

    Back to the keynote, in past years they have had overflow rooms where you watch on a large display. My advice is as long as you are willing to show up and stand in line at least 3 hours before it starts you should be okay.

    Edit: Make sure you pick up your badge on Sunday. Don't expect to do that on Monday before the Keynote.
