WWDC registration extended

Apple on Tuesday announced that Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO, will kick off its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, June 11, 2007 at San Francisco's Moscone West. At WWDC, Apple plans to show developers a feature-complete version of Mac OS X Leopard and give developers a beta copy to take home for final testing. Delayed from its original "Spring" release, Apple's next-generation Leopard operating system is now scheduled to ship in October. Last month, a mis-step by the Apple Web team indicated that Jobs' keynote was scheduled for three hours, before the Cupertino-based company corrected the mistake and said that it would run for 90 minutes.

Apple's annual WWDC is a five-day event, scheduled to run from June 11 through June 15; it will offer more than 150 sessions and labs aimed at getting the most out of Mac OS X Leopard. The conference will also include new content to serve a wide range of developers, including Mac OS X Immersion Monday, designed to quickly get developers who are new to the Mac up to speed; a content and media track that shows developers the best ways to integrate animation, motion graphics, video, rich-media and web-based content into their applications; and dozens of hands-on labs that offer a unique opportunity to work directly with Apple engineers.

Other activities at Apple's WWDC 2007 include:

  • presentations from Apple engineers who will provide an in-depth look at Leopard, from its open source foundation to new technologies and innovations like Xcode(R) 3.0, Dashcode, Core Animation, Time Machine, iChat Theater and more;
  • practical hands-on sessions where attendees can learn Apple's own coding strategies and techniques for creating Cocoa bindings, building Automator actions and integrating iCal(R) events into an application;
  • technology labs where attendees can work one-on-one with Apple engineers on topics such as Cocoa, Open GL and AJAX; and
  • special events, including the Apple Design Awards and Stump the Experts.

The five-day developer conference costs $1,600 per attendee, with a $300 Early Registration Discount that has been extended through May 11.
