Apple officially sets 2014 WWDC date
Just as spring ends, developers will flock to celebrate a special event in California.
Apple announced on Thursday that it will be holding its annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) this June in San Francisco. To be held from the 2nd to the 6th in Moscone West, the WWDC is the opportunity for developers around the world to learn new things about iOS and OS X, which would allow them then to develop the newest apps that would captivate millions of iOS and Mac users around the world.
There will be over 100 sessions to share knowledge from Apple engineers on different topics, whether about design, app frameworks, services, location and motion, graphics and games, media, core OS, and tools and performance. Developers can have their apps checked on at the different Labs and have those engineers provide recommendations and improvements. The WWDC is also a chance to meet new people through get-togethers aimed towards like-minded peers.
To be able to attend this year’s event, developers have until 10am PDT on Monday, April 7, to apply for tickets through the WWDC website. The tickets will be given out randomly, and developers will only know if they were picked by 5pm PDT on Monday. The WWDC tickets will cost $1599 and those selected will have only until 5pm PDT on April 14 to pay that amount.
