Apple today announced that its 2006 Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) will take place in August, about two months later than usual.
The annual conference, which usually takes place in June, will offers in-depth sessions, unique insight, and access to Apple engineers.
Traditionally, Apple has used the conference to highlight major advancements to its Macintosh operating system. However, last year, the company used the forum to unveil its plans to transition its Macintosh computer line to Intel processors.
Early registration for the show runs through June 23 and offers developers a $300 discount on all packages.
Apple is also offering two additional promotions: a WWDC 2006 E-ticket and ADC Select Membership for $2000 ($100 discount) and WWDC 2006 E-ticket 5-pack for $6,380 (\"buy four, get a fifth free\"). During early registration, these packages are discounted by $300 and $1,200, respectively.
\"WWDC 2006 is a perfect opportunity to take your work to the next level,\" the company wrote on its developer Web site. \"Discover tools and techniques for optimizing your code on Intel-based Macs, explore best practices for choosing and using the latest APIs, and learn how to make the most of the technologies and services built into MacÂ OSÂ X.\"
