In just under 7 weeks, we’ll be back in Yosemite National Park for our second Yosemite conference. We’re excited, to say the least!

For our second time in the Valley, we’re thrilled to have people like Jessie Char, Jonathan Mann, and Jean MacDonald joining us, as well as several members of the old gang like Andy Ihnatko, Jaimee Newberry, Jim Dalrymple, Serenity Caldwell, Michael Lopp, and TED photographer James Duncan Davidson!

Here are a couple of things you should know about Yosemite.


The excellent people at Yosemite Lodge at the Falls are offering Yosemite attendees a fabulous group rate of $159 a night. This offer ends on February 13, which is coming up pretty fast.

The Lodge Combo Ticket

We’re offering a special combo ticket that includes a pass to the Yosemite conference, plus three nights’ lodging at Yosemite Lodge at the Falls (where the event will be held). The ticket costs $1,599, and will save you $200 on your stay. This offer also ends on February 13.

Yosemite 2015 was truly spectacular, and 2016 is fixing up to be no different. Join 19 of the Apple community’s finest members in the heart of one of the most beautiful locations on the planet.

We’ll see you at the Falls!
