Report: Apple reaching out to some devs with extra WWDC tickets?

updated 09:26 pm EDT, Thu April 25, 2013

Numerous tweets confirm Apple contact, conference sold out in minutes

Various tweets and blog posts from developers who tried -- and failed -- to snap up Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) tickets in the scant two minutes they were available from Apple this morning indicate that the company is contacting some of those turned away to offer some tickets to the event. The "second chance" calls are unlikely to be made to all developers, and so the company has already announced that videos of all the sessions will be made available to registered developers as the conference progresses.

Daniel Jalkut of Red Sweater Software took to Twitter to confirm that he had been contacted, Bose designer Eric Dolecki posted about the experience on his blog, and coder Jeff Menter confirmed that he also had been contacted. So far, Apple representatives have been calling developers, confirming that they had tried to get tickets, then letting them know the company would reserve one for them and send instructions later on how to pay for and obtain the pass.

The conference will be held from June 10-14 at Moscone West in San Francisco. Apple VP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller has said the company will show previews of both iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 at the conference. Beta builds will be available for attending developers and pre-release copies available to those who can't attend shortly afterwards.

    No second chance tickets. They seem to be simply completing orders for people who got tickets into their cart but were unable to complete the purchase.

    if you actually read the links to the devs provided in the article, you would see that your assessment is inaccurate.
