Apple has hosted a developer meeting the day before WWDC begins, where guests at the Apple Park campus will be given a tour of the new Developer Center.

On Sunday, Apple hosted an open house for the Developer Center in Apple Park, where attendees were given a tour of the center’s first floor. Greeted with coffee and donuts from Caffe Macs, visitors were led into the building to a reception area by waving and cheering masked staff.

In a series of photos and videos shared on Twitter by author and developer Paul Hudson, visitors were able to tour some of the downtown rooms. As is typical of Apple, it was playful in the design of the rooms and the tour itself, hiding numerous elements for visitors to discover.

The names of the rooms in the building are taken from macOS releases, including Panther, Tiger, Leopard, and El Capitan. The rooms themselves are described by Hudson as “a developer-only Apple Store,” packed with technology and large screens

Scattered across the rooms were Easter eggs, including a jacket allegedly provided to WWDC20 participants but received by the winners of the Swift Student Challenge, whiteboard messages to check Xcode for other messages, and a reference to “Prototype Dolphin”, which a codename for some watchOS versions.

Like the adjacent main building of the Apple Park campus, glass clad the exterior of the Developer Center, which was staffed by Apple employees. Guests were also taken to the Big Sur Theatre, which will be used for future presentations.

Swag was also handed out, including a carrying case, Swift cap, Apple water bottle and a set of pins.
