Apple details WWDC

Apple has posted information on its website detailing the sessions it will offer developers at its forthcoming Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) scheduled for June 11-15th in San Francisco. The conference is primarily focused on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, which industry watchers expect to ship in April. "There's no better time to attend WWDC," said Ron Okamoto, vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations at Apple. "Mac, iPod and Apple TV offer software, hardware and content developers an unrivaled opportunity for innovation." The Cupertino-based company silently left out any mention of its iPhone, saying only that the device isn't due to ship until June and that until then the company will refrain from commenting. Apple is planning to offer more than 100 sessions and labs presented by company engineers within six technical tracks to aid developers.

Apple's tracks at this year's WWDC include Leopard Innovations, Mac OS X Essentials, Developer Tools, Information Technologies, Graphics & Imaging, and Content & Media. The company is also inviting Windows and Linux developers to this year's event.

"One of the most popular questions we get from developers is 'where can I find some great Mac engineers?'" Okamoto said. "We are going to invite the Windows and Linux engineers and help them leverage their experience to become Mac engineers."

The executive said Apple is working with several name brand developers to show a movement to the Mac platform, but offered no specifics on the matter.

"The volume and quality of products from our developers has been inspiring," said Okamoto. "It's coming from both camps -- small developers and the more established developers that have been with the Mac for a long time. We expect to see much more of that in 2007."
