Though Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference may be the big fish of Apple-related gatherings, a number of smaller conferences have sprung up over the past several years. I sit down with senior writer Lex Friedman, just back from the
Úll conference in Dublin, Ireland to discuss these events and what they offer that Apple can’t match.

In addition to the Úll conference, other events we mention include the
Çingleton symposium in Montreal, Chicago’s
SecondConf, the UK-based
NSConference, and the
One More Thing Conference in Melbourne, Australia. Arguably the grandaddy of these smaller conferences was the late C4, which we covered in
ceased operation in 2010. And then, of course, there’s the long running
Macworld/iWorld conference. (That’s put on by IDG World Expo which, like Macworld, is owned by IDG.)
