Apple World Wide Developers Conference to kick-off June 6 in San FranciscoApple's annual developers conference is set for the first week of June.
All systems are 'go' for Apple's WWDC 2005, according to a posting on the company's Developer Connection Web site. The conference, which will be held at Moscone Center West in San Francisco, Calif., will begin on June 6th and run through the 10th.
"With its unique integration of breakthrough technologies, open standards, and robust development tools, Mac OS X Tiger is the platform for unparalleled developer innovation. At the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2005, June 6-10 in San Francisco, you'll get the in-depth knowledge, hands-on instruction and one-on-one support you need to deliver products and solutions that transform the way your users work, play, search, and share on a Mac," says a statement on the developer site.
In recent years, Apple chief executive, Steve Jobs, has transitioned the conference into an event that showcases not only the company's latest software technologies, but also its cutting edge hardware offerings.
At WWDC 2003, Apple introduced the Power Mac G5, while last year's event was slated to host the launch of the iMac G5 before issues arose with IBM, Apple's G5 chip supplier. Still, a revamped line of Cinema Displays were rolled-out.
According to a published list of frequently asked questions, complete session tracks information, special events, and keynote speakers will be provided on the WWDC 2005 website in the near future.
Tickets to the conference are priced at $1,295 for orders placed before April 22 and $1,595 thereafter.
