It’s that time of year again WWDC the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple has confirmed that it will be held at Moscone West in San Francisco from June 10th to the 14th. A statement from Phil Schiller senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple said “Developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we’re excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps, we can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC.” The tickets are available for purchase tomorrow [25th April 2013 at 10AM PDT / 1PM ET].
At WWDC the developers will get a look into the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create new and innovative apps. Last year the tickets for the event sold out in under two hours, consumers and developers alike rushing to get a ticket to the event and eager to see Apple’s latest iOS and OS X developments. This will be the first major changes made since the former Apple iOS vice president Scott Forstall left the company, this year we expect to see even bigger demand for the tickets this year since Jony Ive became responsible for interface design at Apple.
This year Apple is requiring that developer must be members of a paid program prior to the announcement for early sign up to prevent last-minute signups. Developers between the ages of 13 and 17 must also have their tickets purchased by a parent or guardian who is also a member of the program also tickets are limited to one per person and five per organisation.
For those of you who can’t make it to the conference or just missed out on tickets Apple says that they will be posting videos of the session during the conference rather than afterwards like they normally do. Apple used to charge hundreds of dollars for access to the session’s videos but then later made them free for registered developers.
