Techly Explains: What is WWDC?

If you’re wondering about the WWDC hype, you’ve come to the right place.

Apple has two big events each year – one in June and one in October. Techly was at last year’s October event, which saw the release of the MacBook Pro. We’ll be at the June Worldwide Developer’s Conference as well, so make sure you follow us for live updates, insights and early reviews and product info.

What is WWDC?

The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is an annual event held by Apple which invites developers from all corners of the globe to come together, learn from experts, and share ideas. A number of successful projects have been supported by the groups or programs facilitated at WWDC, the Aussie apps Streaks and Zova being two examples.

Apple are incredibly proud of their annual conference, which is driven by the belief that “technology must intersect with the liberal arts and the humanities, to create new ideas and experiences that push society forward. This summer we bring together thousands of brilliant minds representing many diverse perspectives, passions, and talents to help us change the world.”

Here’s an idea of what the conference will look like:

When will WWDC be held?

The conference will be held between 5-9 June 2017, with a lot of hype around the fact that the event has moved from San Francisco to San Jose. While San Fran is arguably the current hub of the Silicon Valley, moving to the quieter, more spacious San Jose is considered to be an attempt to make the event more affordable and enticing for developers.

Where will WWDC be held?

The week-long conference will be held at McEnery Convention Centre, San Jose, California.
