Apple will host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose from June 3 through June 7 at the McEnery Convention Center. Now in its 30th year, this year’s program will feature technical sessions, hands-on labs and guest speakers to provide Apple’s existing developer community and the next generation of app developers with the knowledge and tools to help turn their next great idea into reality.
“WWDC is Apple’s biggest event of the year. It brings thousands of the most creative and dedicated developers from around the world together with over a thousand Apple engineers to learn about our latest platform innovations and to connect as a community,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
“Our developers are incredibly passionate about creating the next generation of mind-blowing experiences for the world through apps. We can’t wait to get together with them and share what’s next.”
Developers can apply for tickets today through March 20 at 5 p.m. PDT through the WWDC website. Tickets are issued through a random selection process, and developers will be notified of their application status by March 21 at 5 p.m. PDT.
Developers and Apple enthusiasts everywhere can live-stream the conference on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV as well as through the Apple Developer website.
Students are an integral part of the Apple developer community, and last year WWDC saw attendance from student developers spanning 41 different countries.
Up to 350 WWDC scholarships are available this year, providing students and members of all STEM organisations an opportunity to earn a free ticket and lodging for WWDC.
You can apply now on the WWDC website.
