Steve Jobs to kick-off WWDC 2007

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Apple confirmed Tuesday that chief executive Steve Jobs will kick off the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, June 11, 2007 at San Franciscos Moscone West conference center.

Apple said it plans to use the event to show developers a feature complete version of Mac OS X Leopard and give them a beta copy to take home for final testing ahead of its October release.

The five-day WWDC event, scheduled to run from June 11 to June 15, will deliver more than 150 sessions and labs aimed at getting the most out of Leopard.

The conference will also include new content to serve a wide range of developers, including Mac OS X Immersion Monday, designed to quickly get developers who are new to the Mac up to speed; a content and media track that shows developers the best ways to integrate animation, motion graphics, video, rich-media and web-based content into their applications; and dozens of hands-on labs that offer a unique opportunity to work directly with Apple engineers.

Other activities at Apples WWDC 2007 includeresentations from Apple engineers who will provide an in-depth look at Leopard, from its open source foundation to new technologies and innovations like Xcode 3.0, Dashcode, Core Animation, Time Machine, iChat Theater and more;practical hands-on sessions where attendees can learn Apples own coding strategies and techniques for creating Cocoa bindings, building Automator actions and integrating iCal events into an application;technology labs where attendees can work one-on-one with Apple engineers on topics such as Cocoa, Open GL and AJAX; andspecial events, including the Apple Design Awards and Stump the Experts.

Cost & Registration

The five-day conference costs $1,595 (US) per attendee, with a $300 (US) Early Registration Discount that has been extended through May 11. Visit Apples WWDC website for registration and complete session details at developer.apple.com/wwdc.

OMG, I can just imagine the havoc that will be wreaked on Mac user's eyeballs will all the advanced animation now built in... could be a visual crapfest on par with the introduction of thousands of font choices with early computers... (shudder)...

Yay! At least we'll get to *see* Leopard and it's 'secret features' at WWDC.

i hope Jobs don't waste developer's time with iPhone presentation rehash....maybe this will mean he will at least showcase Leopard's secret features.

and maybe there will be some hardwares coming too. probably MBP, iMacs and Minis.

OMG I am so excited! This is actually only 6 weeks away! I hope I can be patient until October.

One question - How soon will we be able to buy Macs, lets say Macbooks with preinstalled Leopard? Can it happen in October, too?

He has no choice but to divulge every feature. The beta going to Developers at WWDC will be "Feature Complete" no more secrets after June.

The iPhone will get attention. Despite the MWSF focus you still don't know enough about the iPhone

How does it sync?
How does it's calendar work?
What other applications are available ?
Is there a SDK for developing apps for it?

Jobs is going to have a blast. Wish I was there.

As for hardware new Macbooks and Macbook Pro should be coming "this" month. Intel looks like they're on track to launch Centrino Pro probably by mid month.

I hope they are giving those damn developers a free iPhone. Jikes. Hopefully their work centers are paying the way.

I think the biggest question of all about the iPhone is: Will it talk to Exchange ActiveSync, i.e., will it work on most business email systems?

The iPhone should get it's own 'special' event. If SJ spends 30 minutes talking about the iPhone then there won't be much about Leopard to discuss. IIRC, keynote will only be 1hr long.

I think that it is inevitable that he will spend some time showing off the iPhone, it launches in the same month.

I wonder how much time does he has for the keynote? I think he will have a lot to cover with Leopard alone and the iPhone and whatever else they choose to introduce.

The only question developers want to know about the iPhone is the last one, is there an SDK. If not, don't waste their time (and money, they spend a lot to go to this thing) with focus on a product that has no bearing on them. This is why even product announcements at the thing are a complete waste. Its a developers conference, not a "Hey, check it out, we've got a new ipod!" conference.

Jobs might talk a bit about iPhone, but I have to imagine most of the show will be about the Mac, since they spoke so little about it at MacWorld, and since they are in front of a bunch of devs. I think Jobs might also make note of how people think the company is starting to abandon their computer developments. Since 10.5 has been delayed, I also expect some huge "top secret" features.

iJobs will talk about iPhone very iLittle. two iHours in iJanuary was iEnough. it will iSync w/ iTunes [the iSoftware that REALLY needs a new iName - *iHint iHint*] iBet it's all iLeopard.

for the love of GOD, you dropped computer from your name, please drop the i's from your products! iMac was cute, but we don't need an i in front of everything. only the "pro" apps are safe. it's apple TV not iTV, please make that the start of a new trend. i'm suprised it's not "iNal Cut Studio"

can someone please point me to a link showing the last refresh dates for apple hardware across the board?

Not to mention what's in Vista's upgrade!

Ten years ago, we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash.  Today we have no Jobs, no Hope and no Cash.

I hope so, but I don't think it will be that simple. If it's anything like the iPod games, coders for iPhone apps might only be a secret society.

Conferences can be expensive, I think this is about a week long, and last I heard, food and lodging is included. Add to it that a developer can get face-to-face with qualified Apple programmers, it can be a great value if you can take advantage of it.

Well, they serve lunch. But, lodging is definitely not included although they do have special rates at nearby hotels.

Yeah you're right. If I spent $1300 to attend WWDC I'd certainly be more interested in seeing everything about Leopard that is cool demoed. If iPhone got any ink it better be word that a SDK is coming.

Don't forget, however, all of the special labs and hands on training with Apple developers that attendees get as part of their admission to WWDC. I would expect Jobs to use the keynote to discuss iPhone because that video will be watched by all the mdeia/apple fans, etc. The developers are going to get their fill of Leopard that week, make no mistake, but Jobs is definitely going to use the publicity of his keynote to push iPhone as well.

P.S. - Secret iPhone/Leopard iPhone feature prediction: integrated iWork. It has been predicted that Apple will bundle iLife and iWork with Leopard as has been discussed in other sections of these forums. iPhone has various parts of iLife (music, movies, photos) but what about iWork? This has probably been metioned elsewhere on the forums, but my guess is that iPhone will have pages/keynote/pdf viewer app.

Take that, Ballmer!

To answer your question: You are covered on launch day. In the days leading up to the OS launch, Apple literally slips into every box in stock a DVD containing the OS to install (trust me, I have climbed ladders to do it). This happens in the retail stores, online store warehouse, and I would imagine 3rd party retailers will do the same.

For machines to come "preinstalled" with Leopard, all it takes is for Apple to sell through their stock of Leopard-filled machines to get new shipments out of Leopard-installed machines.

Keep in mind that that single FIRMWARE FREE version of the latest and greatest OS just slipped into the boxes always made me respect Apple for trusting its customers to use it properly.
