Tidbits: FileMaker DevCon 2017 and Apple Campus News

We have some tidbit news items on Apple Park progress and the upcoming FileMaker DevCon 2017 this summer.


Latest Drone Footage of Apple Park

Apple Park is nearing completion enough so that employees can start moving in this month, though from the looks of the latest drone footage shown here that doesn’t seem quite yet possible.

The Foster+Partners-designed building is a stunning facility in its size and purity of shape. The entire roof will be a ring of solar panels for renewable energy generation. The glass on its curving facade is the largest produced curved panels in the world and were manufactured in Germany.

As one can see from the drone footage below many elements on the facades are still under construction, and half the roof needs solar panels installed. The landscape itself has a long way to go but one can also see cars moving into the underground parking facility too. With Apple growing its employees count it is understandable to see them installing employees in the new Apple Park ahead of final completion.

The Steve Jobs Theater, by the way, will not be ready until this summer. Drone footage captured by videographer Matthew Roberts.
