Sponsor: Layers conference

The Layers conference, an excellent design conference for the Apple community that runs alongside Apple’s WWDC, is back for 2017 with a new location—the Montgomery Theater in San Jose, nearby WWDC itself on June 5-7.

This is a very thoughtfully produced and designed event which has earned raves from attendees for the last few years. This is the second year Apple has featured Layers as an event alongside WWDC.

The event itself features a diverse speaker lineup, and if you identify with a group that you feel is underrepresented at WWDC, you can apply for a $100 diversity discount by using the code REPRESENT.

If you want to be a part of the WWDC experience but can’t or don’t want to go to the main conference, Layers is a fantastic alternative, especially for the design minded.
