Apple Posts WWDC 2010 Session Videos

Apple today posted the session videos from its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) held last week. The turnaround time on the video release marks a substantial improvement from last year, when it took five weeks for the videos to be posted.

Even more importantly, this year's videos appear to be free to all Registered Apple Developers. Last year's package was free only for conference attendees and ADC Premier members, with developers at lower-level programs being charged $299 for either the iPhone or Mac sessions or $499 for the complete package.

The move to free distribution of session videos is likely necessitated by Apple's restructuring of its Mac developer program earlier this year. In addition, the fact that WWDC sold out in only eight days indicates that there are likely substantial numbers of developers interested in the conference's content but who were unable to attend.
