Site Sends SMS Message When WWDC Tickets Go On Sale


In 2011, less than 12 hours after passes went on sale, Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference had already sold out. To help would-be attendees get a chance to purchase tickets, developers Anthony Herron and Aaron Wardle created WWDC Alerts, a website that lets users sign up to be sent a text message when WWDC tickets for 2012 finally go on sale.

For 2012, Moscone Center's event calendar lists a generic "Corporate Meeting" from Monday, June 11th through Friday, June 15th. It seems likely that this year's WWDC will take place during those dates.

Here's an idea: how about if Apple finds a bigger room?

Or make separate events for OS X and iOS.

I'd be willing to pay £10 to see it live somewhere organised by Apple. Along with popcorn, hotdog and a drink.

Jobs said that Moscone is "the biggest place" in San Francisco. I wouldn't know, I don't live there.

Also, the new Apple mothership, er, headquarters is supposed to fix this issue.

If this is made a big deal out of, then everyone will sign up and tickets will sell out even more quickly then they would have without this service. Doesn't Apple send out an email anyway? Hmmm...

This will be good for scalpers.


Last year it was a issue the guy in front of me in line for for the keynote bought 3 and sold 2 and with the profits was able to cover the cost of the 3rd ticket for himself.

Las Vegas, Chicago, and Orlando (to pick three examples) have bigger facilities.
