Apple today announced that Steve Jobs will kick off its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote on Monday, June 23, 2003, beginning at 10:00 a.m. (PDT) at San Francisco’s Moscone West.
The five-day event, which runs from June 23-27, will feature more than 170 scheduled in-depth technical sessions with new content designed to serve a wider range of Mac developers, including a dedicated track for QuickTime developers and content creators, and an in-depth look at the future of the Mac platform and a preview release of the next major version of Mac OS X, codenamed “Panther.”
Other activities at Apple’s WWDC 2003 include:
– WWDC’s first Enterprise IT Track specifically designed for enterprise developers, system administrators and IT managers so they can fully leverage the open source and open standards approach at the base of Mac OS X, Mac OS X Server and Xserve technologies
– a completely new QuickTime Track for developers and content creators looking to exploit the power, quality and scalability of QuickTime and MPEG-4
– expanded labs with the latest Mac systems where developers can port and test their code and get technical assistance from the Apple engineers directly responsible for the technologies
– comprehensive sessions providing a roadmap and technical information on Apple Developer Tools, Application Frameworks, Core OS, Hardware, Graphics and Imaging
– special events and activities such as the Apple Design Awards, Apple Campus Bash, WWDC Exhibit Fair and Special Interest Groups.
