Apple Announces WWDC 2011

Posted In Apple news - By Tariq On Monday, March 28th, 2011 With 0 Comments

Well now it’s official, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference has been scheduled for the week of June 6-10 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The slogan this year is, “Join us for a preview of the future of iOS and Mac OS X,” adding slightly more credence to the rumors of an iOS 5 announcement not coming this April, but summer instead. WWDC has been the stage of iPhone hardware announcements for the past three years running, but this year it seems that hardware will take a backseat to software. Lion, Apple’s latest iteration of Mac OS X, is also scheduled for a summer release, and I’m sure we’ll see much more of it at WWDC. Tickets are on sale now for anyone wishing to attend. With a price of $1599, the price of admission definitely isn’t cheap. Though with over 100 technical sessions with Apple engineers available, this conference is an invaluable learning opportunity for new and experienced developers alike.
