Annual WWDC event already sold out

Tickets gone in just eight days

Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference is now filled to capacity, as all of the tickets have been sold in just eight days. The company had waited longer to confirm dates for this year's event, with official details finally provided last week.

The late announcement and $300 increase in ticket price were viewed as attempts to indirectly control attendance. Many attendees likely paid more for their travel arrangement due to the constrained time-frame.

Mac OS X development appears to be taking a back seat at WWDC 2010, as conference sessions and Design Awards focus on the iPhone and iPad platforms. Apple is also expected to formally unveil an updated iPhone.

    Wasn't really a price increase.

    Apple used to have a $1300 early bird price to encourage those to register early, but late-comers always had to pay $1600 - Apple just doesn't have the early bird discount this year, because well, they don't have to.

    While yes, the iPhone/iPad have increased popularity, so does the Mac platform - I don't expect the Mac sessions diminish, even if the awards are not there.
