WWDC 2014

Apple has announced that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference will be held June 2-6, 2014, at Moscone West in San Francisco. WWDC is an annual event sponsored by Apple in which developers from around the world meet-up to learn about and discuss the future of iOS and OS X, as well as other developments and technologies that will aid developers in creating apps for iDevices and the Macintosh.

According to Apple, this year’s WWDC will feature more than 100 technical sessions, hands-on labs to help developers, 1,000 on-hand Apple engineers, and the annual Apple Design Awards. These awards give recognition to deserving apps from the past year.

Now, here’s the interesting news which others may not find to their liking. To get an an opportunity to purchase tickets for  WWDC, you must register online, but registration does not assure you’ll get to attend; Apple tweaked its procedures, and will now determine who gets to buy tickets to the event via random selection. At least that will even the chances among those who want to attend the event and could not do so because tickets sold out too quickly, as is always the case.

You can register online starting today through Monday, April 7 at 10:00 a.m. Apple will then announce who will have the chance to buy the tickets to WWDC. For students, Apple is awarding 200 scholarships this year. This will allow students to earn free ticket to the event, as well.

So, mark you calendar, folks, and register now if you’re planning to go to the WWDC 2014.
