Apple today officially announced that CEO Steve Jobs will present an opening keynote address on June 7th to kick off the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco.
Apple will kick off its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address by CEO Steve Jobs on Monday, June 7 at 10:00 a.m. This year’s WWDC sold out in a record eight days to over 5,000 developers.
The five-day event running from June 7 to June 11, is focused on providing advanced content for skilled developers across five key technology tracks: Application Frameworks; Internet & Web; Graphics & Media; Developer Tools; and Core OS. Apple engineers will deliver over 100 solutions-oriented technical sessions and labs. WWDC 2010 gives an incredibly diverse community the opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iPhone, iPad and Mac developers from around the world.
The news is not considered a surprise, as Jobs has traditionally presented the keynote address at major Apple events. Jobs did miss headlining at Macworld Expo and WWDC 2009, however, due to a liver transplant.
Just this weekend, Jobs reportedly emailed a customer about WWDC, noting that “you won’t be disappointed” in response to a question about announcements scheduled for the conference.
