Apple has announced the official dates for WWDC 2015. This year’s WWDC will start in San Francisco on June 8 and runs through June 12.
Like last year, Apple will be awarding tickets to attendees through a random selection system (effectively, a lottery). Developers will be able to apply today through Friday, April 17 at 10 AM PDT, and they will know their status by Monday, April 20 at 5 PM PDT. There are also 350 WWDC Scholarships available, giving students and members of participating STEM organizations a chance to get a free ticket.
“The App Store ignited an app ecosystem that is simply amazing, forever changing the lives of customers and creating millions of jobs worldwide,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “We’ve got incredible new technologies for iOS and OS X to share with developers at WWDC and around the world, and can’t wait to see the next generation of apps they create.”
As with every annual WWDC, the conference will host “more than 100 technical sessions, over 1,000 Apple engineers, hands-on labs to help developers integrate new technologies and fine tune their apps”. In the press release posted this morning, Apple doesn’t mention an inaugural keynote, but confirmed there will be Apple Design Awards and news about the future of iOS and OS X.
Similar to last year, some WWDC sessions will be live streamed via the WWDC website to give “developers around the world access to the latest information in real time”. Apple also notes that videos from all technical sessions will be available at the end of every day.
