Twitter has announced two upcoming developer conferences to discuss Twitter’s integration into iOS 5. These ‘Developer Teatimes’ will be held in London on October 10th and New York City on October 12th.
Twitter’s Jason Costa describes the event:
“There’s a lot going on in the ecosystem and we’d like to take this chance to share the highlights with you – including the latest developments with the platform, areas of opportunity that we’re seeing, and a heavy focus on the iOS 5 Twitter integration for developers. We’ll also be holding a Q&A session with members of the platform team, plus time to hang out with each other.”
The timing of the events is interesting, as Apple’s iPhone 5 (and iOS 5) event is reportedly scheduled for October 4th. This would put the first event, on October 10th in London, in a uniquely timely to discuss the integration openly if the iOS 5 software is publicly available.
“This invitation and its signup sheet make no remarks about the requirement that attendees be Apple Developer program members. This indicates that people attending these sessions will not need to be under NDA to discuss the deep integration that Twitter has in iOS 5 and how they can leverage that in their apps,” said Next Web.
