It’s no great surprise to attendees of past Worldwide Developers Conferences, but today Apple made it official: CEO Steve Jobs will provide the keynote address for Apple’s
Worldwide Developers Conference 2003.
The keynote address takes place on Monday, June 23, 2003 at 10AM PT, in San Francisco, Calif. at the Moscone Center. The event was moved from May to June, changing venues from its usual home in San Jose to San Francisco, as well. Apple plans to provide developers who attend WWDC 2003 with their first look at “Panther,” the next major update to Mac OS X.
The five day event runs from June 23 – 27, 2003, and features more than 170 sessions with content designed to appeal to a wide swath of Apple developers. Tracks have been set up for Enterprise IT professionals, QuickTime developers, and others. Labs have been expanded with the latest Mac systems where developers can not only port their code but also get assistance from Apple engineers who are responsible for the technology. There are special events planned, as well, including the Apple Design Awards, Apple Campus Bash, WWDC Exhibit Fair and Special Interest Groups.
Attendees can get a US$300 break on registration between now and May 23 — it costs $1,295 per attendee. After that, the price goes up to $1,595. Visit
the WWDC Web site for further details.
