On Friday, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will wrap-up, and developers who attended the event will have to head back to where they came from and continue work on their apps.
But Apple is certainly not done reaching out to developers, especially those just jumping into the field, and helping them create the best new apps. In that regard, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Apple Retail, Angela Ahrendts, has just tweeted out a brand new initiative to help aspiring developers with one of the most important aspects of working on a new project: prototyping.
According to Ahrendts, the new “Today At Apple” session is a byproduct of one of the more popular talks at WWDC this year, and the sessions will start some time later this month. Unfortunately, Ahrendts didn’t have a specific date for aspiring developers to circle on their calendar, but more information about the upcoming Today At Apple session should be available soon.
We’re launching a new #TodayatApple session to help aspiring app makers get started with one of the most important steps of the design process — prototyping. The session is based on a popular #WWDC talk. Sessions start later this month https://t.co/NMAVfZrdT3

The Today At Apple sessions will be hosted at select Apple retail stores across the globe. Those locations haven’t been announced, either. When it does go live, though, it will be another free learning session for those who want to attend.
The Today At Apple sessions cover a lot of different topics, including developer tools for coding, as well as iPhone photography, editing, drawing with the Apple Pencil on supported iPad models, and much more.
If you want to check up on an Apple retail store’s Today At Apple sessions near you, you can check the official website.
This writer hasn’t participated in a Today At Apple session yet, but I have been at a store when one was happening. It seemed to be a well-received event, with plenty of people on hand and ready to learn about taking “better pictures” with their iPhone. I’d probably go to more if I lived closer to a retail store. Have you ever tried out one of the Today At Apple sessions?[via @AngelaAhrendts]
