Looks like the DogTown crew will miss out on Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. Ticket sales for the event opened up at 5:30 a.m. PST. today and sold out within two hours, while the entire west coast was fast asleep.
Apple announced the conference would take place June 11-15 this morning. Tickets were priced at $1,600 each. It is expected Apple will announce the new features of iOS 6 on opening day, as well as the details on OS X Mountain Lion.
Developers like us in L.A. area and of course Northern California were highly disappointed by the news. On the conference webpage, Apple apologizes for the tickets being sold out. “We’ll be posting videos of all our sessions shortly after the conference, so everyone can take advantage of great WWDC content for free.”
If you’re still enrolled in college as well as in one of Apple’s developer programs, you have a second shot at visiting the conference, and it’s free too. Students have until May 2 to apply for a scholarship.
