Un-conventional: How WWDC became the heart of the Apple world's calendar

This week Apple opened registration for WWDC, the company's annual developer conference, which will be held June 8-12 in San Francisco.

WWDC is a huge deal in the Apple community, but it wasn't always so. I've been going to WWDC since the mid-1990s, when it was a sleepy affair that took place at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. Probably the most memorable moment of any of the San Jose-based WWDCs I attended was the last one: That was 2002, when Steve Jobs laid the classic Mac OS to rest — no, seriously, there was a coffin on stage.

WWDC 2015 speculated to kick off June 8, 2015

Apple doesn't pre-announced their World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), but they do have to schedule the traditional Moscone West venue and any and all other logistics involved in hosting 6000 of its closest developer and designer friends. That leaves a week-long gap in Moscone's schedule, and that leads to people speculating any such gap in June might be for WWDC. Such is the case for the week of June 8, 2015.

HomeKit lets your iPhone phone home

Apple introduced HomeKit at WWDC to allow your iPhone and iPad to control your connected home. The current state of connected homes today is that each component requires a separate app and not everything is integrated to make it simple and easy. With HomeKit, Apple is hoping to change that as it is partnering with leading vendors of home automation equipment including Schlage, Honeywell, Kwikset, iDevices, and others.

WWDC 2014 to run June 2-6, developer tickets to be issued by random selection

WWDC 2014 is scheduled for June 2 through June 6, and developer registration is being handled on a random basis. Last year, when WWDC tickets were sold out in a few minutes, many developers were left in a lurch, leading to Apple inviting select developers to attend despite their not being able to get a ticket in time. This time around Apple is inviting developers to apply for tickets now through April 7th, and will then randomly issue tickets to those that have applied. The process is similar to that of Google I/O this year, which has seen tickets for previous developer confabs snapped up in minutes and this year switched to a random selection model.
