Apple has announced the time and place for their World Wide Developers Conference this year. It will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco June 6th through June 10th.
Over 1,000 Apple engineers guide you through five exciting days of in-depth technical sessions and hands-on labs that demonstrate how to harness the incredible power of the world’s most advanced operating systems into your apps.
Apple currently lists 5 “technology tracks” that will be the theme of developer labs and sessions –
- Application Frameworks
- Graphics, Media, and Games
- Developer Tools
- Internet and Web
- Core OS
In addition, Apple will once again be hosting the Apple Design Awards which “recognize technical excellence and outstanding achievement in iPhone, iPad, and Mac app design and development”. Last year, Apple chose to focus exclusively on iOS applications leaving websites like Ars Technica to host their own awards for Mac developers.
There have been rumors that Apple will delay the release of iOS 5 this year; historically Apple has both demonstrated and released a new version of iOS (formerly iPhone OS) each year during WWDC. As the event is supposed to be a developer preview, and is specifically billed as being a “preview of the future of iOS and Mac OS X”, it’s likely that Apple will still be showing off iOS 5 this summer even if it isn’t released for another month or two.
Tickets will be $1,599 and can be purchased now on Apples Developer site
