WWDC alternative Indiedevlab announces Saurik and other speakers

Late last month, Apple finally put the tickets for its highly-anticipated WWDC event up for sale. But within two hours, the tickets were gone, leaving hundreds of developers out to dry. Luckily, there’s another option.

If you’re going to be in the San Francisco area around June 11-14, you might want to check out Indiedevlab. No, Scott Forstall won’t be there giving a rundown of iOS 6 features. But Saurik and others will be attending…

Indiedevlab has just announced an impressive list of guest speakers for its iOS developers conference, starting with Jay Freeman, also known as Saurik. Freeman founded the jailbreak app store Cydia, and is always around to lend a hand to hackers and developers when needed.

Nate True is also set to speak at the event. Nate is credited with creating Tap Tap Revenge, one of the most popular iOS games of its time. Mix in developers Ben Zadik of Babble-on and Dan Grover of Etude, and you have a successful panel of speakers — with more on the way.

Aside from the guest speakers, Indiedevlab will also be hosting a series of iOS-focused workshops, and a 4-day hack-a-thon that will see developers use their skills to turn a bare bones iOS game into the next “Angry Birds.” There will also be plenty of time for work, play, and mingling.

If you’re interested in attending, you can purchase your tickets from the official conference website. Also, be sure to follow @indiedevlab on Twitter for the latest information regarding the event.
