The folks who attended RWDevCon last year loved it!
Here's what they had to say:

The hands-on tutorials were worth their weight in gold. Some of the concepts I spend hours reading about were cleared up in 30 minutes.

The demos and labs have been SO polished. Basically my ideal iOS conference because I came away learning so much!

Better food and more fun than WWDC! Lots left to work on after I go home - really met the goal of providing content to cement the knowledge.
