The Worldwide Developer Council 2012, will be held on June 11-15 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The WWDC is not only an event for Apple to train and help app developers but also to launch new exciting products. Last year we remember iOS 5, iCloud and Mac OS X Lion being announced on the WWDC. This year also we have some new and exciting announcements to be made by Apple. If you are a registered developer at the Apple Developer Website you can buy entry tickets right now which are being sold at $ 1599.
A visit to the WWDC is a must for a good iOS or OS X developer as it boasts numerous workshops and about 1000 Apple employees at hand to help and queries about the software.
What to Expect from WWDC 2012 :
- We already know about the new OS X Mountain Lion and at the WWDC we expect it to be announced for release.
- iOS 6 can be announced now which will feature in the next generation iPhone.
- iTunes 11 or the beta version of it.
Apple has at a consistent level released much of its products at the WWDC. Although we are not expecting the iPhone 5 anytime before October, we might see the release of the developer version of the iOS 6 such that the software is tested tried and released by the time for the iPhone 5.
The WWDC will have more than 100 technical session to make the developers know about developing, deploying and integrating with the latest iOS and OS X technologies.100 hands-on labs staffed by more than 1,000 Apple engineers who provide assistance at the code-level hence giving in depth knowledge about app development. This is also a very good time to network as there are many other developers frok around the world attending it. Last year representatives from about 60 countries attended WWDC.
WWDC is also when Apple holds its Apple Design Awards which recognizes outstanding design and technical excellence for apps. Tickets are available at the Apple Developer Website for registered developers for $ 1599. While there will definitely be many who will pay this hefty sum to attend the WWDC but the availability is also doubted. The tickets were sold within 2 hours of the announcements. In fact the WWDC tickets have surfaced on eBay and are being auctioned for about $2550.
