WWDC 2018 Returns to San Jose on June 4th through 8th

Apple has announced dates for the 2018 installment of its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which will be held from June 4th through 8th, again at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Apple will once again issue tickets by random lottery, and you can apply now through 22 March 2018 at 10 AM PDT at the WWDC Web site. Tickets cost $1599 each and include daily lunch, beverages, and snacks. Up to 350 student scholarships are available, allowing chosen students to attend for free. Students must include a unique Swift playground to apply for a scholarship. In an unusual, but welcome, move for a conference, Apple will also offer free childcare for children 8 and under, though space is limited.

Unlike last year, Apple didn’t mention any adjacent events, but AltConf will once again be held nearby from June 4th through 7th. As always, tickets are free, but attendees are encouraged to donate and donating $300 guarantees a seat if the space fills up.
