More young developers at WWDC – REALLY young developers

Jessica E. Vascellaro for Wall Street Journal:

Paul Dunahoo went on a business trip to San Francisco last week, where he attended technical sessions at Apple Inc.’s AAPL +2.03% developer conference, networked with other programmers and received feedback from Apple engineers on his six productivity apps.

Then, Mr. Dunahoo, chief executive of Bread and Butter Software LLC, returned to Connecticut to get ready for the eighth grade.

For the first time this year, Apple opened up WWDC to the 13-17 year old set by providing student scholarships. They even set up a special area for them at the show. The 150 teens joined other underaged developers who attended the show. Most of them were attracted to it by their experience developing apps for iOS.

    The comments are a tad deceptive. The first implies that before this scholarship no one under 18 could go to WWDC. But the second confirms that that isn’t true. You could, if you could find a way to cover the costs.
