Apple has announced further information on its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference.
The event, which is being staged in San Jose from May 19-23, will offer a mass of seminars for Apple's increasingly diverse developer community. The company slogan for this year's event is: "Develop, produce, deliver".
New developers are being offered a Getting Started bundle at the show. This contains hardware; software; training for developers looking to migrate; a ticket to the event; Apple Developer Connection Select membership; a 20 per cent discount on the cost of one complete Mac system; and access to Apple's archived WWDC 2002 QuickTime movies.
WWDC also features Apple's Design Awards, recognizing the best OS X products; access to all the sessions archived online, the WWDC Exhibitor fair; in-depth technical sessions, hands-on labs and feedback forums.
The event also offers a series of technology briefings. These will cover Apple's Developer Tools, Application Frameworks, Core OS technologies; graphics and imaging hardware - including Quartz and Quartz Extreme - and QuickTIme.
This year also sees a new track added to the list-- Enterprise IT, confirming the company's extending reach into offering solutions for the enterprise.
A note on the company site states: "Mac OS X has captured the attention of IT organizations wanting to develop and deploy open source and standards-based solutions in heterogeneous environments. Sessions in this track will help IT managers leverage OS X and OS X Server technologies to deploy and manage Apple servers and desktops in an existing infrastructure."
Registration and pricing details are available from Apple. Early registration discounts end April 18.
