What is WWDC?

WWDC is Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference. It’s a gathering of developers who author programs and services for Apple computers, servers, iPhones, iPods and iPads. Apple’s WWDC 2010 draws several thousand developers who are eager to network with others in the development community, attend sessions and technical labs. The WWDC is kicked off with Apple’s keynote, which is usually led by Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

WWDC is a technical conference, which means many of the items discussed who are professionally involved in the Apple ecosystem. Over the years, WWDC has evolved as a mid-year launching pad for Apple’s consumer products and services.

The WWDC keynote, which begins at 10AM PST today,  is only the beginning of the conference. A full conference schedule can be found at Apple’s developer web site.

This year’s WWDC is seen as especially important as Apple is releasing its revamped iPhone operating system. In past years, WWDC focused primarily on Apple’s desktop operating system OSX. This year the WWDC is expected to all but ignore OSX if GDGT’s photos are any indication.

Apple will likely introduce a new iPhone and other products today.
