Fans, educators, buyers and those generally curious about what Apple is going to do next flock to Macworld Expo in New York and San Francisco each year. Besides the hardware from Apple, we get to see what our favorite developers have been working on since the last show.
Sometimes that work starts at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) being held this year from May 6 – 10, 2002 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA. At WWDC, developers find out the direction Apple will be taking — the past two years have focused on Mac OS X. With the successful release of Mac OS X 10.1 late last year, it’s a good bet this year’s WWDC will follow that focus.
Starting February 25, Apple will be offering a pre-registration package for developers. First, if you register before April 15, 2002 you pay $1,295 for the conference, a savings of $300 off the normal price of $1,595.
Recognizing that Mac OS X has brought new developers to the platform, Apple is also offering a Getting Started bundle until April 15, 2002. Priced at $1695, the Getting Started bundle includes attendance at WWDC 2002, a full-year Apple Developer Connection Select membership, a discount on one Apple Macintosh system (including 1 CPU and 1 monitor) and more.
More information on the Apple Developer Connection Select Membership can be found online.
