If you’re a Mac developer and you still haven’t made up your mind whether to attend this year’s
Worldwide Developers Conference, drop by Apple’s Web site and view some sample sessions recorded during last year’s event.
The sample sessions, delivered using QuickTime, can be viewed from Apple’s
home page. They include Tuning Software with Performance Tools, Introduction to Developing Applications with Cocoa, How to Write a Modern Carbon Application, OpenGL Optimizations, Mac OS X Server Overview, Creating Great Java Applications on Mac OS X and The Pro in QuickTime Pro. You can also view additional sessions by joining Apple Developer Connection or logging in to the ADC Member Site and selecting “View ADC TV — WWDC 2003 Sampler.”
WWDC 2004 takes place from June 28 – July 2, 2004 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif. It’s Apple’s annual gathering of Macintosh software and hardware developers from around the world, and it’s the premiere showcase Apple uses to help its developers find out how to get the most out of the Macintosh operating system and hardware they’re developing for. In the past couple of years, WWDC has also served as Apple’s way to introduce major advances in technology like Mac OS X v10.2 “Jaguar,” Mac OS X v10.3 “Panther” and the Power Mac G5.
WWDC 2004 will include seven session tracks to help developers focus their attention on the technology areas that are important to them. This year’s session tracks include Application Technologies, Development Tools, Enterprise IT, Graphics and Media, Hardware Technologies, OS Foundations and QuickTime and Digital Media.
WWDC 2004 early bird registration pricing starts at US$1,295.
