Apple has officially announced the dates for its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). WWDC 2013 will take place at Moscone West in San Francisco from Monday, June 10 through Friday, June 14th. Tickets for the conference will be on sale tomorrow (April 25) at 10 AM Pacific Time.
WWDC typically includes previews of new versions of iOS and OS X and sessions for iOS and OS X developers to work on their code and new projects alongside Apple engineers. Despite being a very popular event that sells out in hours, the conference still takes place at Moscone West.
We look forward to gathering at WWDC 2013 with the incredible community of iOS and OS X developers,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Our 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.
WWDC 2013 activities include:
- More than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and OS X technologies;
- more than 1,000 Apple engineers supporting over 100 hands-on labs and events to provide developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and OS X technologies in their apps;
- the latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X, and how to enhance an app’s functionality, performance, quality and design;
- the opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iOS and OS X developers from around the world—last year more than 60 countries were represented;
- engaging and inspirational lunchtime sessions with leading minds and influencers from the worlds of technology, science and entertainment; and
- Apple Design Awards which recognize iPhone®, iPad® and Mac apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design.
Tickets for the conference will go on sale tomorrow for $1599, April 25th at 10 AM Pacific / 1PM. Tickets are limited to one ticket per person or five tickets per organization. Last year, WWDC 2012 was sold out in less than 2 hours! With the expected unvieling of an overhauled iOS 7, this year’s demand could be even greater.
