    Apple today announced that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) for 2014 will be held June 2-6 at the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco. The company also announced that application for tickets to the event will start today through Monday, April 7. Tickets will be issued to attendees via a random lottery.

    To handle overwhelming demand for tickets, Apple adopted a lottery system that will issue tickets to developers chosen randomly from the pool of registered applicants. Developers who apply for a ticket via lottery will know their status by Monday, April 7 at 5:00 PM PDT. Scholarships will be given to 200 students, who will have the opportunity to attend the conference for free.

    Apple's requirements for purchasing a ticket to WWDC include membership in one of the company's paid developer programs, including the iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program, or Mac Developer Program. With the new lottery system in place, Apple also is requiring that developers be a member of a paid program prior to today's announcement, thus preventing last-minute signups from obtaining tickets.

    As was the case in previous years, developers between the ages of 13 and 17 must have their tickets purchased by a parent or guardian who also is an eligible member. Tickets are limited to the applicant only and cannot be sold, resold or otherwise transferred.

    Developers can begin the registration process using this link.

    iOS 8 & OSX 10.10, Here we go!!!

    Hopefully, we'll have some refreshed hardware for mac (new MBP or mac mini for instance).
    And who knows if there's one more thing, like in the old Jobs days...

    That is last year's. The bottom line is the year in roman numerals.

    It won't "sell out", it's a lottery.

    Yep, that's why I was asking. Pretty sure it's already sold out!

    How quickly will they sell out this time around? :eek:

    I think two or three developer conferences a year would be better. That way they can educate more developers. I'm sure the developer site acts really slow and some won't get their tickets in time. Although I like the lottery idea that they are using this year.

    It's not "selling out" this year, that's the whole point of the lottery.

    Yeah, OK. I now know it's a lottery. Sorry, I just jumped to conclusions.

    They don't mention whole new iOS or Mac OS releases this time.

    I would actually be happy if they hold off on the next Mac OS to make sure it's as bug-free as possible. But I doubt we won't see iOS 8.

    So does the image hint to OSX looking kind of like iOS 7?

    Its a developers conference so I'd say the odds are high we'll have mention on both operations systems.
