WWDC Afterparty at Aol, sponsored by Nest and UserTesting

  • AOL

Join us on Monday June 16 on the Aol patio for our annual informal celebration of another WWDC. (This year's challenge will be to find someone who got a ticket!) 

Thanks to sponsors UserTesting and Nest, we'll have food from Speedy Panini and a presentation inside from Nest. 

If you've been following WWDC, you probably saw that Apple announced HomeKit , a new framework for "communicating with and controlling connected devices in a user’s home" (https://developer.apple.com/homekit/)  and that soon afterwards, Honeywell announced a HomeKit-compatible thermostat (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-06-10/thermostat-war-heats-up-as-honeywell-aims-at-google.html). 

Is Nest sitting still? Find out Monday, and whether or not you were at WWDC this year, tell us your favorite announcement in the comments below.

    The Mystery around all the things that Nest *couldn't say* has rolled out fairly quickly. From Dropcam to the developer program, it's finally live… https://developer.nest.com/ They have even included a warn your neighbor smoke alarm ifttt script example. A suggestion from the meetup, they are moving quickly...

    Gonna be honest guys - this is the furthest thing from an "afterparty" I've ever been to. Thoroughly disappointing - just wish the intent and description of this meetup was made clearer.

      Thanks, this all is fair (unless you were looking for a frat party or night school :) ). Where money is involved, there will be lawyers, but I have no lawyers keeping me from saying that I appreciate the Nest team's taking our questions - particularly on the heels of the HomeKit announcement, which seems like a direct shot at them by Apple. I also think that Apple's HomeKit team has a long way to go to catch up to the coherence of vision and execution that Nest has put together. We'll see.

      The event itself was good. Food and sponsors are always a good thing! But I also had really no idea what to expect from the description of the event. I went to some of the party's during WWDC week and they were the kinds with music and drinks and such. I personally don't care much for music or drinking, but with "party" in the title, perhaps some of us were thinking a bit more of a social/networking event.

      Typical attendance at free Meetups is 50-75% of RSVPs. (unscientific estimate)

      So, as always, everyone please update your RSVP by the day of the Meetup.
