We’re just three days away from Tim Cook and the gang taking over San Francisco’s Moscone Center for this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference. Preparations for the big event have been underway all week, but crews are starting to wrap up pre-production — and the final WWDC 2015 banners are being unfurled.
Apple takes over San Francisco’s Moscone Center next week for the Worldwide Developers Conference, and preparations for the annual invasion have already begun. More than 5,000 developers will descend on the conference center for a week of coding and a little bit of partying.
This year’s signage on the outside of the Moscone Center looks pretty much just like last year’s. Here’s a closer look:
But the blogosphere is nothing if not forward-looking, and already people are talking about what next year’s event will hold. While we may not have an answer for that just yet, there may be a few clues as to when it will take place, courtesy of the Moscone Center’s calendar of upcoming events.
Every year thousands of Apple developers flock to San Francisco to attend Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference to be educated in all things Apple. Over the past decade the conference has undergone some big changes as Apple has introduced products like the iPhone, Mac Pro, Intel Processors, Mac OS X operating systems, and much more.
An event that used to be lightly attended has now become the most popular developers conference in the world and sold out within 2 hours this years
Here’s a look at the many banners that have decorated the halls of WWDC over the past 11 years:
WWDC 2013 is ready to kickoff in San Francisco next week, and in preparation for the event, Apple has already started decorating Moscone West with WWDC 2013 banners.
The banner art shows the same graphics that Apple used on the official WWDC 2013 logo. the graphics appear to be a bunch of flat app icons, which support the rumors that iOS 7 will ditch its skeumorphic roots for a more minimalist and modern look. One of the tag lines for the banners reads, ‘Where a whole new world is developing.’
Here are some more pictures of Apple’s WWDC 2013 decorations:
Even though Apple announced the dates of WWDC yesterday, tickets for the event didn’t go on sale until today. Apple just flipped the switch on WWDC 2013 ticket orders, so if you’re hoping to make it to this year’s event, you better hurry up and get to ordering.
Apple sold out of tickets for WWDC 2012 within 2 hours last year, so we expect this year to be even more crazy. Going to the event will set your back $1599, not including your flight and hotel. The event will be held at Moscone West in San Francisco this year from June 10-14th.
SAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD/iWORLD 2013 – The doors of Macworld/iWorld open up tomorrow morning, but we’ve already taken a quick tour of the Moscone center to get an early look at the action.
Exhibitors are rushing around trying to put the finishing touches on their booth, but it looks like some of them will be burning the midnight oil as a lot of booths still need a ton of work. We’ll be back tomorrow morning to cover all the cool new products and TechTalks, but for now, here’s what it looks like behind the scenes of Macworld/iWorld 2013.
Many people thought that without Apple’s injecting blood directly into the arteries of Macworld, the expo would quickly shrivel and die.
They were wrong. Apple may not have participated in the event since 2009 but things are still going strong. Macworld has transformed itself from an Apple launch event where Cupertino announced products like the original iPhone and taught customers how to use them, to an event where people celebrate the culture that permeates Apple fans and binds them together.
In three short days, thousands of iFans across the globe will converge on San Francisco’s Moscone Center to celebrate everything that is great about Apple. It’s going to be a great show. Already, Macworld/iWorld 2013 is set to be one of the most entertaining Macworld conferences in recent memories. It’s going to be packed with celebrities like Ashton Kutcher and Will.i.am, while over 350 companies show off their new products to Apple fans who will love getting to hangout with each other and swap stories on everything Apple.
Here’s what to look forward to this week at MacWorld/iWorld 2013:
