Apple’s WWDC returns to San Jose, runs June 5-9, 2017

Apple today announced its 28th annual Worldwide Developers Conference will be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. The conference, kicking off June 5, will inspire developers from all walks of life to turn their passions into the next great innovations and apps that customers use every day across iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac.

Each year during WWDC, millions of talented developers around the world learn about Apple’s breakthrough platform technologies ranging from programming languages like Swift to breakthrough developer APIs like SiriKit, HomeKit, HealthKit and CarPlay. These Apple technologies inspire developers to continue creating incredible experiences for every aspect of customers’ lives and improve the way they manage their smart homes, cars, health and more for over one billion active Apple devices.

Located just minutes from Apple’s new headquarters in Cupertino, WWDC 2017 will give developers access to more than 1,000 Apple engineers with opportunities to meet and engage with them throughout the conference.

The McEnery Convention Center will be the hub for thousands of attendees with great hotel, restaurant and entertainment options, all within walking distance. In addition to the keynote address, get-togethers, sessions and labs for developers, Apple is working with the city of San Jose and local businesses to celebrate the return of WWDC with very special experiences around San Jose throughout the week.

Developers will have the opportunity to apply for tickets this spring. The conference will be live-streamed through the Apple Developer website (developer.apple.com/wwdc) and on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

  1. I’ve been to three WWDC events held at Moscone Center – West. The first year, the bash was held at Apple HQ. then later years it was held at a near by park.

    I don’t know what it would be like, at McEnery, but I can only guess it will harken back to early days. Now I am curious where the bash will be held this time. Will atendies get to visit the new campus? If so that will be a real treat. The expected first press conference will be held at the new HQ for the iPhone Aneversary announcement (prediction). So I think this year will be special.

  2. Even though it’d be TWO YEARS LATE – PLEEEEZE Apple dazzle us with new desktop Macs, in particular the venerable Mac Pro in a new pro form that pro people actually want to overpay for.

    1. I am ready to buy a pretty loaded new Mac Pro. I’m just waiting for the announcement and availability date. Apple, you already have my money for the new Newer Mac Pro 2017. Please make it happen and you will get paid.

  3. The convention center will be fine for meetings, but the surrounding area will be much poorer for after hours socializing. San Francisco is simply a far more interesting place.
