With just a little over six weeks of notice, Apple today has officially announced that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) from June 11-15 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The ticket went on sale for $1599, and came with a new restriction requiring that purchasers be members of one of the company’s developer programs.
Apple says that it will hold over 100 technical sessions for developers, with over 1,000 Apple engineers on hand to provide support for attendees.
WWDC 2012 appears to be focused on both OS X and iOS developers equally, with OS X Mountain scheduled for public release later this summer and iOS 6 ready to be demoed and enter developer testing ahead of a new iPhone hardware update later this year.
Last year, WWDC conference tickets sold out in under twelve hours. This year, tickets sold out just under two hours! WWDC has sold out quickly in recent years too, selling out in eight days in 2010.
