Where will you be this June? If you’re an Apple (s aapl) developer, you’ll want to be at San Francisco’s Moscone West for the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2009 slated for June 8-12.
This is the premier event for Apple developers who create apps for Mac OS X or iPhone, and also for IT pros who work with Apple platforms. Besides rubbing elbows with developers of every level of experience, attendees can hit up technical sessions on Mac development, participate in hands-on labs, check out presentations by special guest speakers, and get in on workshops to help you design and create iPhone Apps.
Of course, what’s an industry conference without an awards ceremony? Each year Apple hands out design awards in categories like Best Mac OS X Leopard User Experience, Best Leopard Game, and Best Student App. This year’s nominees haven’t been announced yet, but past winners have gone on to become familiar names in the Mac community.
Tickets to this extremely popular event usually sell out quickly, so if you plan to go, reserve your spot now. Tickets will set you back $1,595, but if you snag yours before April 24, Apple will knock off $300. ADC student members and Team Members in the iPhone Developer University Program can apply for one of 400 scholarships available through Apple.
