Welcome to the Developer Center and Apple Park

On the eve of WWDC, we invited developers to the new Apple Developer Center — a world-class facility designed for our worldwide community to meet, learn from, and collaborate with Apple — and then over to Apple Park to take in screenings of Keynote “Being in a space like this gives you chills,” said Vitalii Mogylevets, creator of the Apple Design Award-nominated Waterllama. “It feels like you’re a part of something really big.” Check out these pictures from an incredible day.

Celebrate the winners of the Apple Design Awards

12 apps and games became Apple Design Award winners on Monday, winning in categories like Inclusivity, Delight and Fun, Interaction, Social Impact, Visuals and Graphics, and Innovation. “We couldn’t believe it,” says Charles Bardin, creator of A Musical Story, which won for innovation in games. “We thought, ‘OK, we’re very small, we’re just happy to be here.’ But it means a lot that a big company recognizes our work.”

For others, it meant a validation of years of effort. “When we won, I was thinking, ‘I wish the whole team could be here,” said Amanda Schofield, co-founder and and creative director at Studio Drydock, which won for its game Wylde Flowers. “Every single person put everything they had into it.”

  • Meet the team behind “What’s New in SwiftUI” and join a text-based watch party for the session, followed by a short Q&A.
  • Meet the Accessibility team in an icebreaker session where you chat about your favorite WWDC moments and share tips and tricks.
