CocoaConf Alt was a conference that was organized for the week of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference for all of the attendees that couldn’t get tickets for Apple’s event. However, organizers of CocoaConf Alt contacted attendees this morning and said the event has been canceled.
“We have decided to cancel CocoaConf Alt 2013. It turns out that it’s not just the hotel that had concerns, but that Apple has a policy of stopping ‘competing’ events in the area,” wrote CocoaConf Alt, Dave Klein. “You know and we know that CocoaConf Alt was not in competition with WWDC, but there just isn’t time to find the right person at Apple to explain that to, nor any guarantee that we could convince them if we found them.”
Of course, all attendees that paid for the event will be refunded and Klein is offering those people a free pass to an upcoming CocoaConf event.
