Thank You For Coming to My Shortcuts Meetup!

The Shortcuts User Group meetup at WWDC was a great success – thank you to everyone!

My second-ever Shortcuts meetup was a great success1, with an excellent group of folks chatting at SoFA Market for a few hours on Tuesday afternoon at WWDC.

We talked about Apple Intelligence, the prominence of App Intents and my new consulting gig to help developers implement everything, and, thanks to some special guests, had excellent discussions about the Shortcuts app.

Plus, for fun, I was able to give away 10 Stream Deck Neos and two Prompters, courtesy of Elgato – below are some great photos from (most of) the winners. Unfortunately, I only thought to take a group photo right at the very end when some folks had already left – however, I’ll remember each and every one of you in my heart.

In order to pick winners, I had to do something on-brand – so I ran this shortcut every 10 minutes while we were at the event, letting Siri pick from the list of attendees from the event page to choose a winner.

Thanks again to everyone who was able to make it on such short notice – I’m already working on plans for next year, so be on the lookout a few months before WWDC’25.

P.S. Special thanks to Ben McCarthy and Adam Tow for the help managing the Elgato gear and with nametags.

P.P.S. While not technically representative of the entire group, I am fully aware that the main photo is 100% men, and it is my failing that there was not a wider diversity – I am already making plans to affect this for next year.

  1. We had at least 5x the turnout the original 4-person meetup back in 2019.
