It’s almost time for Apple’s 2012 WWDC (the week we’ve all been waiting for)! For those developers lucky enough to be registered as an attendee, the event schedule has been posted, while the rest of us are just going to have to wait.
The conference runs from June 11-15 in San Francisco and features six seperate tracks of content:Essentials – Helping developers to build stable, beautiful, efficient and feature-rick applications using a variety of frameworks and best-practice techniques to make the most of their development time. App Services – Showing how to extend app functionality with additional frameworks and services. Developer Tools – This one is all about mastering Xcode. Graphics, Media and Games – Giving developers the skillset to tap into the graphic potential of iOS and OSX graphic technologies. Safari and Web – This track digs deeply into Safari and all of the integrated developer tools to embed web content and built new extensions. Core OS – This is the hardcore track: harnessing the power of the powerful Core OS for iOS and OSX to do things like secure, high-performance networking, create device drivers and other intense development tasks.
There is no doubt that Apple takes this event seriously and that they want developers to have a fantastic time. They have even released a helpful guide to help developers plan their time, link them to the official app and even give them suggestions on what to pack (with lots of coding to be done they recommend you bring your MacBook loaded with the latest developer rools, an iPad or other iOS device for testing, any power adapters or peripherals and your code). The guide also gives a list of pre-study materials to review (past WWDC videos, and developer library documentation) that will help people to be prepared and get the most out of the conference that they can.
The end of the guide also warns that you need to take good care of your conference badge as they will not re-issue new identification and gives tips on finding public transportation. It also appears that they provide Wi-Fi for all participants and even serve out lunch and beverages each day!
