360 iDev positions itself as the smaller, more intimate, and independent alternative to Apple’s WWDC. About 400 attendees and 55 speakers participated in the 2015 conference, which featured 61 sessions.
Kevin Quach, writing in the Avocarrot blog in 2014, called 360 iDev “one of the most important events for indy developers on their way up” and said that the the conference has built “a first-class reputation for seriousness and quality of lectures. … There is more than just work at this convention, as the broad scope of extracurricular activities allows for some personal interaction as well,” he added.
Independent iOS developer Ray Wenderlich, founder of Razeware, blogged in early 2015 that 360 iDev is one of his favorite iOS conferences. “It has a little bit of everything – technical talks, design talks, business talks, and great parties — and has a wonderful community of attendees that come back year after year,” he wrote.
