Apple wants developers to get on board with the Apple TV platform, and the Cupertino brand is set for a global tour for Apple TV Tech Talks to give programmers everywhere a piece of the Apple pie.
To participate in a Tech Talk, interested users must register before Nov. 13, 10:00 a.m. PST, so you better hurry. As usual, there's a caveat: You must be at least 18 years old with a government-issued photo ID. On the other hand, individuals between 13 and 17 years old must have a current school ID or passport.
Attendees will learn virtually everything there is to know to develop apps for the tvOS. The program promises that participants will be fully equipped to create software for the new platform.
"Get in-depth technical information on building and designing for tvOS, learn refined coding techniques, and obtain valuable development instruction from Apple experts," Apple says on its Tech Talks page, where developers can sign up to attend.
For 2015, Apple will hold sessions in Toronto on Dec. 7, Los Angeles on Dec. 10, Austin on Dec. 14, Seattle on Dec. 16 and Cupertino on Dec. 17 and 18. For the following year 2016, the Cupertino firm will conduct sessions in Berlin on Jan. 8, London on Jan. 11, New York on Jan. 12, Tokyo on Jan. 21 and Sydney on Feb. 3.
Participants will follow a schedule for the Apple TV Tech Talks. 8:00 a.m. will be for registration, 9:00 a.m. will be for morning sessions, 12:00 p.m. will be for lunch, 1:00 p.m. will be for afternoon sessions and 5:00 p.m. will be for the reception, where attendees can socialize and interact with fellow developers. That's the whole Apple experience shindig right there — well, sort of.
It seems worthwhile to attend an Apple TV Tech Talk, as you'll get the edge over other developers when it comes to creating apps for the Apple TV's tvOS. Plus, you'll be one of the first people to know the latest updates regarding Apple devices.
With Apple continuously increasing its range of products, the Cupertino brand needs your apps and wants you to get in on the action.
