Today is the first full day to register for Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). The conference will be held 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 today, 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.
