JailbreakCon 2012, which not only offered jailbreak enthusiasts the chance to learn from the best by means of various workshops, but once again displayed to the world what a thriving and talented community the scene has forged over the past few years, and with the likes of Saurik, Pod2g and iH8sn0w all giving speeches, it was always going to be an event to remember.
As you'll probably be aware, this year's Worldwide Jailbreak Convention (WWJC '12) will commence in a short while, and unlike Apple's WWDC keynotes, the celebration and insight into the jailbreaking community will be available to watch as a live stream; details after the jump!
For those regular readers among us, you will no doubt be aware that we are heavily involved in support of JailbreakCon, the worlds first convention dedicated to all things related to jailbreaking. The event is set to take place on September 29th in the South of San Francisco at a venue that is located deep in the heart of the Biotech Valley, the birthplace of biotechnology.
Every now and then, an event comes along which stands out from the rest and makes its name due to the fact that it is either the first of its kind, or, does something which has already been done but in an entirely different way. Toward the back end of 2011, we were proud to be involved as media partners for the MyGreatFest event, which took part in the heart of London, featuring some of the most prominent names that are associated with the jailbreak community on one way or the other.
Yesterday I was fortunate enough to be in the presence of some of the finest and most influential members of the jailbreaking community. Scores of iOS modding enthusiasts, reporters and developers turned out for the first ever jailbreak convention, now called JailbreakCon (formerly MyGreatFest), of which Redmond Pie was one of the key sponsors.
