Apple gelar WWDC tanggal 4-8 Juni 2018

Semalam Apple mengumumkan tanggal gelaran WWDC tahun ini yaitu dari tanggal 4-8 Juni 2018. Acara bagi para pengembang aplikasi iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch ini akan digelar di San Jose, California. Dalam rilis persnya:

Every year, WWDC provides an opportunity for millions of developers to learn more about how to create new experiences across Apple’s platforms for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac and HomePod. A broad range of robust developer APIs, including SiriKit, HomeKit, HealthKit, GymKit, MusicKit, ResearchKit, and CoreML, give developers new ways to help users take command of everything from their health and homes, to how they get around, shop and learn. Last year at WWDC Apple debuted ARKit, and since then, developers with apps in every category on the App Store have embraced inventive ways to engage customers with virtual experiences overlaid in the real world.

 

Apple siap gelar WWDC 2017 pada 5 Juni mendatang

Apple baru saja merilis pengumuman gelaran WWDC 2017. Event tahunan berkumpulnya para developer yang digelar oleh Apple tersebut akan dimulai pada 5 Juni mendatang. Berbeda dengan tahun-tahun sebelumnya yang diadakan di Moscone, San Francisco, WWDC 2017 akan digelar di McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, California.

Sebenarnya McEnery Convention Center di San Jose bukanlah tempat yang benar-benar baru bagi Apple. Sebelum pindah ke Moscone pada 2003, Apple rutin menggelar WWDC dari tahun 1988-2002 di McEnery Convention Center.

Pengumuman ini cukup mengejutkan. Pasalnya, Apple biasa mengumumkan tentang gelaran WWDC di bulan April setiap tahunnya. Dari rilis pers Apple:

The McEnery Convention Center will be the hub for thousands of attendees with great hotel, restaurant and entertainment options, all within walking distance. In addition to the keynote address, get-togethers, sessions and labs for developers, Apple is working with the city of San Jose and local businesses to celebrate the return of WWDC with very special experiences around San Jose throughout the week.
