Apple today announced that Steve Jobs will kick off its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote on Monday, June 6, 2005, beginning at 10:00 a.m. at San Francisco’s Moscone West.

The five-day event, which runs from June 6 to June 10, will host more than 140 technical sessions with new content designed to serve a wide range of Mac developers, including tracks for making the most of Mac OS X version 10.4 Tiger, hands-on labs with the latest Mac systems and a unique opportunity to work developer-to-developer with the Apple engineers who created Tiger.

Other activities at Apple’s WWDC 2005 include:
• an in-depth look at Tiger technologies, from its open source foundation to innovative application frameworks, next generation development tools and its more than 200 new features including Spotlight™, Dashboard, Automator, Core Data, .Mac Sync and more
• detailed technical information and guidance to make the most of Tiger and other technologies including special sessions on creating Dashboard Widgets, writing a Spotlight plug-in, and implementing Sync Services in applications
• an Enterprise IT track helping enterprise developers, system administrators and IT managers to make the most of the core technologies in Tiger and fully leverage them in their environments
• hands-on labs highlighting new tools and techniques for accelerating applications, including one to help developers migrate projects to Xcode
• comprehensive sessions where developers can learn firsthand Apple Engineering’s own coding strategies and best practices for leveraging technologies like Spotlight, Core Image, Xgrid, Core Data and Quartz Composer
• special events and activities such as the opening night’s Apple Developer Connection Reception, Apple Design Awards, Stump the Experts and Late Night Labs.

The cost of the five-day conference is US$1,595 per attendee, with a $300 Early Registration Discount available through May 6. Visit Apple’s WWDC website for registration and complete session details at


  1. But will Steve introduce Lynx or Lion or whatever will follow Tiger?

    Will he announce speed-bumped Tiger PBs? G5s would be awesome but 1.8 G4s are what I expect.

  2. There won’t be any new operating system announcements until January at the earliest (and probably later – June ’06 perhaps). Apple will have to crow about this one for a while to reap the benefit of Longhorn’s delay. If they start talking about their next OS it will place them in the same timeframe as Longhorn, in people’s minds, and then there won’t be any reason to switch.
