IF you're an iOS app developer and would like particiapte in Apple's biggest software event, the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), you can apply for tickets from today until March 20 at 5pm Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) through the WWDC website.
This year's WWDC will take place in San Jose from June 3 to June 7 at the McEnery Convention Center. Now in its 30th year, Apple’s biggest event will bring together the world’s most innovative and creative developers. With more than 1.4 billion devices now running iOS, macOS, watchOS or tvOS, WWDC 2019 will give attendees insight into the future of these platforms and work alongside the Apple engineers behind the technologies and frameworks developers rely on.
The WWDC 2019 will deliver the latest Apple news from the keynote stage and celebrate the breakthrough work of developers who are creating new experiences in areas including machine learning, augmented reality, health and fitness, and more. This year’s programme 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.
According to Apple, tickets are issued through a random selection process, and developers will be notified of their application status by March 21 at 5pm 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.
