More sessions than ever before will streamed to developers. At WWDC, Apple’s developer community learn about the future of iOS and OS X and feature more than 100 technical sessions, over 1,000 Apple engineers, hands-on labs to help developers integrate new technologies and fine tune their apps, as well as the Apple Design Awards which showcase the best new apps of the last year.
Developers can apply for tickets via the WWDC website now through Saturday, 18 April at 3 a.m. AEST. Rather than the traditional first in best dressed ticketing system, tickets will be issued to attendees through a random selection process. Developers will know the status of their application by Tuesday, 21 April at 10 a.m. AEST.
There will also be up to 350 WWDC Scholarships available, giving students and members of participating STEM organisations around the world the chance to earn a free ticket.
This year’s WWDC 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.
There will also be more than 100 hands-on labs and events with more than 1,000 Apple engineers to providing 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 event is also a networking opportunity so developers can connect with thousands of fellow iOS and OS X developers from around the world. Last year more than 60 countries were represented. There will also be a series of get togethers for attendees focused on particular topics with special guest speakers and activities.
Select Worldwide Developers Conference sessions will be live streamed throughout the week via the WWDC video website and the WWDC app, giving developers around the world access to the latest information in real time. Videos from all technical sessions will also be available by the end of each day.
