Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2004 happens from June 28 – July 2, 2004 in San Francisco, Calif. Recently Apple updated the WWDC Web site with information the Hands-On Labs planned for the event, more details on the Information Technology (IT) conference track, and information about an extended registration deadline.
Apple calls WWDC’s Hands-On Labs “the hidden gems of the conference.” They enable developers to schedule one-on-one consultation with Apple engineers to help get the most out of their software. Labs scheduled for WWDC 2004 include compatibility, Developer Technical Support (DTS), enterprise IT, graphics and media, Java and WebObjects, Xcode and more.
Apple is making a play to win the hearts and minds of IT developers, system administrators and managers working with (or considering) Macintosh hardware and software in their enterprises. The Enterprise IT track offers sessions to help in-house developers learn how to create database applications using Mac OS X server, build computing clusters, learn techniques for integrating Mac OS X into Unix and Windows networks, build scripts and more.
More details about the IT conference track and the Hands On Labs are available from the WWDC 2004 Web site. In related news, Apple Developer Connection has extended its WWDC 2004 Early Registration deadline from April 30th to May 14th. Attendees who register early can save $300 on their “E-ticket.”
