Phil Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, talking to John Gruber further added that WWDC 2017 in San Jose means a lot for Apple employees as "they won't have to devote an entire day to being there."

Schiller further added that coming back to San Jose will not affect the number of attendees, and added that a lot will be happening outside the convention centre. "It feels like WWDC is going home," Schiller said.

"Apple is working with the city of San Jose and local businesses to celebrate the return of WWDC with very special experiences around San Jose throughout the week," added Apple.
