Apple extends WWDC early registration; dangles free, feature-complete Mac OS X Leopard beta

Apple has notified developers via email that WWDC07 (June 11-15, San Francisco) early registration has been extended to May 11. “Register now for WWDC 2007 and save $300 on the full admission price.”

For additional incentive, Apple dangles Mac OS X Leopard:

See the future. Then take it home with you.

The Leopard beta. Available first at WWDC.

At the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, we’re planning to show you a feature-complete version of Mac OS X Leopard, and you can take home a beta copy. Be the first to get your hands on the Leopard beta and get a huge head start on development. Register now for WWDC 2007—it’s your ticket to the future of Mac OS X.

Register by May 11 and save $300.

  1. I’m not surprised Apple has had to provide an incentive and extend the registration period!

    Yea, those Keynotes are always so empty. Apple really has to work hard to get people to attend. Surely no software developer can afford $1300..

  2. Apple has always provided Betas/latest release of their upcoming OS as the 1st thing you get at the Keynote. This is a non-event…
    Extending the deadline, however, is cool….
    Anyway, I get to go back after a 5 year hiatus. Last time I went it was in San Jose – this is WAY better…

  3. MacCanuck ,

    AMAZING DOCUMENT!!!

    Thanks for posting the link.
    Microsoft does what they always do, lurk and copy, wait till Apple does something, then copy.

    What a disgrace as a tech company.

    Apple has no where the R&D as MicroCRAP and still blow them away in the area of ideas.

    Apple till the end…

    Yes, many of the MS emails released thru the recent Iowa anti-trust trial were quite revealing and embarrassing to Microsoft.

    Here’s a link to the Allchin “I’d buy a Mac” statement…

    They were all widely available during the trial at the public site…

    but by some strange coincidence, it became a locked site AFTER MS decided to settle the case.

    MS trying to hide/bury the damning evidence?

  5. Already signed up for WWDC…

    So we’ll have Leopard Beta. I’m still hoping they’ll announce third-party developer support via DashCode and they’ll give out free iPhones… ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”LOL” style=”border:0;” />
