The Intel Transition

I spent Thursday and Friday at a workshop Apple put on to help developers transition their code onto Mac OS X for Intel. I won't get into the technical aspects of the workshop, as that was labled as confidential (although I have no idea why), but I would like to say that the Apple employees were great. They are comitted to the success of the transition, and know it is important to have plenty of native software available at first hardware launch. They were helpful, and never condescending in the face of ignorance. If you are a Mac developer, and get offered a chance to go to one of these events, go. It's a rare and immensely valuable experience.

Also, DTS engineers have some interesting side jobs.
