Apple has announced the official dates for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) which will take place June 11th through June 15th at San Francisco’s Moscone West. Each 2012 WWDC ticket costs $1599 (USD) with purchases limited to one (1) ticket per person and five (5) per organization.
The 2012 WWDC will feature more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers as well as the popular Apple Design Awards, a showcase of the most outstanding apps from the past year.
Apple also announced a WWDC scholarship program for students 13 or older. “We want to reward outstanding student developers with the opportunity to attend this year's conference on a WWDC 2012 Student Scholarship.”
Developers will be able to explore the latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X Mountain Lion and learn how to greatly enhance the functionality, performance, quality and design of their apps. Developers can even bring their code to the labs and work with Apple engineers, applying development techniques and best-practices to enhance their apps.
“We have a great WWDC planned this year and can’t wait to share the latest news about iOS and OS X Mountain Lion with developers,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
“The iOS platform has created an entirely new industry with fantastic opportunities for developers across the country and around the world.”
