Apple today announced it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2019) from June 3 through June 7 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. It’s the 30th anniversary of the conference, and WWDC 2019 promises to be the biggest WWDC yet.
WWDC 2019 will deliver the latest Apple news from the keynote stage and celebrate the breakthrough work of developers who are creating new experiences in areas including machine learning, augmented reality, health and fitness, and more. This year’s program will feature technical sessions, hands-on labs and guest speakers to provide Apple’s existing developer community and the next generation of app developers with the knowledge and tools to help turn their next great idea into reality.
“WWDC is Apple’s biggest event of the year. It brings thousands of the most creative and dedicated developers from around the world together with over a thousand Apple engineers to learn about our latest platform innovations and to connect as a community,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Our developers are incredibly passionate about creating the next generation of mind-blowing experiences for the world through apps. We can’t wait to get together with them and share what’s next.”
Developers can apply for tickets to the event starting today through March 20 at 5 p.m. Pacific Time, through the WWDC website. Tickets are $1,599 and the opportunity to purchase a ticket is issued through a random selection process. Developers will be notified of their application status by March 21 at 5 p.m. PDT.
As usual, Apple will be offering scholarships to WWDC, as up to 350 students and members of all STEM organizations will have an opportunity to earn a free ticket and lodging for WWDC. Details on how to apply are now available on the WWDC website.
