Tickets for the annual Worldwide Developers Conference held by Apple sold out in less than 120 seconds. Compared to the last year when all tickets were sold in two hours, this year, WWDC tickets were sold in a matter of minutes.
Apple started selling tickets for the well-awaited conference on Thursday, and within 2 minutes, all tickets were completely sold, marking the fastest sell-out in the Worldwide Developers Conference.
Last year, the most probably was that developers were not aware of the fact that Apple started selling WWDC tickets since they announce the conference a little bit earlier, more exactly at 5:30 in the same day. This year, developers had a day in advance. Apple revealed the time and date of the conference, and only the second day the Fruit Company started selling tickets for the event.
Worldwide Developer Conference also called the WWDC represents the ultimate place for all third party developers to gather. It also represents the only Apple-run developer event of the year, the only time when developers can find out hidden features or future software. The rest of Apple products are being released under press releases and events, and as everybody knows, Apple is pretty aloof when talking about its future plans.
For those users who do not know, the conference lasts a whole week and each day represents a new occasion for learning something new when following developer sessions and labs. The price of a ticket costs $1,599. The main reason why developers choose to attend to this well-awaited event is the fact that Apple takes advantage to reveal a keynote address for future products. The conference will feature more than 100 technical sessions, and it will be presented by some 1,000 of Apple’s own engineers who will also attend participants and developers.
Last year, the Cupertino Company chose to present new notebooks, a price tag for the OS X Mountain Lion and the first preview of the iOS 6. Rumors suggest the fact that this annual conference will reveal the new iOS 7 and OS X concept. In the same time, developers expect pre-release beta software for testing.
This year’s annual conference will take place from June 10 to 14 at Moscone West in San Francisco, California. For those who wanted to attend to the conference but the tickets were sold out too quickly, Apple will prepare a video recording of all WWDC 2013 sessions available on the official Apple Store only for registered developers.
