|[7:30 AM] Attention Developers: Pre-Registration Starts For WWDC
Apple has begun accepting preregistration for the World Wide Developer Conference, or WWDC. The WWDC is the largest gathering of Mac developers in the world and includes seminars, conferences, speeches, announcements from Apple, door prizes, and more. The event is held annually in San Jose, Ca. This year's event takes place May 15th to May 19, 2000 with an Earlybird Session on Sunday, May 14th.
This year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is a must-attend event for anyone currently developing, or interested in developing for the Mac platform using Apple's revolutionary technologies. You'll get the latest, in-depth scoop on everything from Mac OS X and Carbon, to Cocoa, Aqua, and Quartz, and much, much more. You'll also hear captivating, insightful keynote speeches from Apple's management team and, of course, from Apple CEO, Steve Jobs.
Pricing for the event is US$1395, but Apple is offering a preregistration discount of US$1195 if you register by April 15th, 2000. You can find lots of information on the event at Apple's web site.
The Mac Observer Spin: The pulse of a market. The WWDC is a very important event for Apple. Developers are the life blood of the computer industry, and Mac developers are therefore precious to Apple. That is why Apple has sometimes made product announcements at the WWDC in years past. Despite the limited (in terms of quantity) audience, Apple wants to make an impression on the attendees.
Last year's WWDC was a rousing success with record attendance, and we expect this show to be even bigger.
