Start your week of learning by gaining an overview of the many technologies that are available to you on these revolutionary platforms, then attend the technology specific sessions during the week of WWDC that dive deeper into each topic.
Within each session you'll receive code-level guidance offered in practical examples that you can apply to your own development environment. Information is presented through introductory and advanced concepts that will provide you with a solid foundation if you are new to iPhone
development, or accelerate your development if you are already familiar with Apple technologies.
You'll also learn new ways to apply the technologies you use in your development today, and get an introduction to new technologies that will enhance the capabilities of your application. IT professionals will find a range of sessions on using Apple technologies in heterogeneous environments.
Bring your code and your concepts to the hands-on labs and make your ideas come to life. Work with Apple engineers to gain insights into their development techniques, tackle code-level issues, talk through your ideas, and get answers to the topics critical to you. Apple’s Human Interface designers are available for one-to-one consultations on the visual design and usability of your iPhone
or Mac OS X
IT professionals can use the labs to explore the powerful technologies in Mac OS X Server Snow Leopard
. In-house developers, system administrators, and network integrators can learn more about development, configuration, deployment, and administration best practices from members of the Leopard Server engineering team. You can also take this opportunity to meet and discuss integration and management of Apple technologies with other IT professionals.
Connect With Your Peers
WWDC brings together the best and the brightest developers and IT professionals in the Apple community from around the world. You’ll spend the week with a myriad of other professionals using Apple technologies in many new and exciting ways. Take advantage of this unique setting to strike up a conversation and get inspired by how they are developing with, deploying, and integrating Apple technologies.
