Tickets for WWDC 2012 Sell Out in Under Two Hours

Less than two hours after going on sale, passes for Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) have already sold out. The quick sellout comes even as Apple imposed new restrictions this year limiting ticket sales to registered iOS and Mac developers and limiting the number of passes available per developer group.


WWDC has sold out increasingly quickly in recent years, selling out in eight days in 2010 and in under 12 hours last year.

The conference will be held June 11-15 at the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco.

Maybe it's time to consider moving this to a larger venue.


I don't think it's venue size that limits it. There are only so many Apple employees to teach and do sessions.

Wow, I'm glad I just took a deep breath and pressed the purchase button before I thought about it too much. I'm in deep trouble with my wife, I'm sure.

This is all good but I swear to God I'll really lose it if I find tickets getting sold on eBay for 3X Apple's price.

Given the timing, I wonder if this year's WWDC will be very East Coast heavy. Folks like me are just getting up on the West Coast and reading the "already sold out" message. I'm betting I am not alone.

What would be cool: if they offered a lower price for people who just want to go to the keynote and then the $1599 or whatever for the keynote + training sessions.


The training is already free. Videos of the training sessions will be released within a few weeks of the end of WWDC.

The keynote will be blogged about live for free as well.

You're paying for one-on-one with Apple engineers - the actual people who designed and coded iOS and OS X. And you're paying for the interaction with others at the conference with like minds, who you can shoot ideas off of, that you can help and will help you as well. The 'energy' you get there is amazing - you will get a huge desire to be a better developer.
