I posted a couple of images to the WWDC 2014 Glassboard page, for a couple of WWDC 2014 first timers. I’m reposting them here for those of you who haven’t heard about the board.

Keynote line up and Badge pickup – I checked the timestamps on my photos from last year’s keynote. If you can pick up your Badge on Sunday. The line up starts early in the morning – I mean early! We went down at 6 am last year to join friends who lined up at 11pm Sunday. Apple let us into the building to line up on the second level at 7:15 am. There’s coffee, juices and pastries. We had to wait in the crowded halls until 9:30 am when they let us into the main room for the the keynote. Like others have said (I couldn’t find the old thread) you can line up after 9 am and you might also get into the main room. Lining up for the keynote is an experience like no other (except maybe the line up to Star Wars Episode VII). If you can travel down with some other devs, meet some in the line up. You can pick up your badge on Monday morning, but get it out of the way on Sunday if you can.
the keynote line is on the right side and wraps around the building. The line up on the left is the Monday morning badge pick up line.
This is the front of the line inside at 7:20 am.
Going up the escalator at 9:30am (WWDC 12)
This is a close as you can get. Those seats in front are the VIP section. (those are friends who got moved up to VIP with their boss)
This was Steve at the keynote. Again from the second row, behind the VIPs. c WWDC 11?
