    With so many people attending WWDC for the first time this year, we thought it might be fun to share our version of a “WWDC First-timer’s Guide.” In this episode, Joe shares his local knowledge of San Francisco and particularly the area surrounding the Moscone Center. We tell you what to wear, where to go, and where not to go. Joe shares some of his favorite places around Moscone to grab a bite to eat, find free WiFi, or just sit and enjoy a drink — including his picks for the best Bourbon and Scotch whisky selections in the city. We share a few tips for those who got a ticket to WWDC and then discuss options for those who didn’t, including a preview of Appsterdam’s AltWWDC. Finally we give some tips for keeping tabs on friends, finding the best parties, and generally making the most of your trip to San Francisco. Charles and Joe will both be in San Francisco for WWDC, so if you see us out there, please stop us and say hello!
