WWDC is Apple’s annual event to give iOS and OS X developers details on the company’s roadmap, and also offers developers the opportunity to work directly with Apple engineers for a few days. The event will include over 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers, and 100 hands-on labs where developers can get help with their own code from Apple.

Tickets for the conference went on sale early in the morning on April 25 and sold out within two hours.

The latest rumors claim Apple will refresh almost all of its Mac product line during the conference, possibly including the Mac Pro. Apple’s tower computer hasn’t been updated  since 2010, leading to speculation at times that the company will discontinue the model and push pro users to the iMac line.

The WWDC keynote presentation will start at 10AM pacific time on Monday, June 11. The Mac Observer will be on location providing live coverage, so be sure to check in to find out what announcements and surprises the Apple has in store.
