WorldWide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2006

Apple announced today that the WorldWide Developer's Conference will be taking place between August 7-11 in San Francisco, California.

Last year, WWDC attendees watched Apple unveil its plan to transition to Intel microprocessors and then headed to the lab to run their code on Intel-based prototype systems. This immediate, hands-on access to the newest Apple technologies happens for developers at WWDC and nowhere else.

WWDC is a conference targeted at professional developers, however, Apple has made a number of significant announcements during the WWDC keynote speech over the past few years. August represents a change for the conference, which has typically taken place in June.

Apple has stated that they will be previewing Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) at WWDC 2006.
