I've been doing that too
There is that face to face element being lost, but really they should offer more accessible developer evangelists or support staff to everyone anyway.
It's neat that you can click on the transcripts to jump to the appropriate place in the videos.

I filed a bug once and it was marked "Works as currently designed", whatever that means.
I am not a designer but somehow this header image is not what I would have expected from Apple in the last years. Is it a statement of some kind or a deign trends that I am missing?
Anyone else love how no company can tell you “hey we don’t distribute through the App Store, you’ll have to sideload and run this totally closed binary blob with 0 third party auditing to use our product”?
I’m always seeing people on HN complaint that Apple doesn’t allow sideloading. I think it’s brilliant.
There are plenty of things you can’t do for reasons beyond safety. I can’t easily load emulation apps for example. Apple doesn’t allow it because of copyright concerns, and there’s no way around that. There are apps that Apple doesn’t allow for business reasons.
And regardless, apps which use system APIs can absolutely be dangerous, but they can also be super useful or interesting or fun, and I should be allowed to make my own judgments rather than simply being told I’m not allowed to try something that might potentially possibly be dangerous.
You can absolutely implement all the security features of a centralized app store without running your own monopoly software store. The security features of the app store are independent from the business model.
Basically any desktop Linux distribution will show you how trusted software repositories can work in practice.
Am I the only one thinking transition to ARM?
You really can't accurately guess what the symbolism in Apple's WWDC banners might mean. It's intentionally too vague to decode.
Edit: Too blind to realize it is online 8-/. Now makes sense.
The announcement is really just for confirming exact dates. Everyone thinking about attending knows that it's in early June and isn't being surprised.
“The current health situation has required that we create a new WWDC 2020 format that delivers a full program with an online keynote and sessions, offering a great learning experience for our entire developer community, all around the world. We will be sharing all of the details in the weeks ahead.”
