Apple's WWDC 2017 Ticket Lottery Ends, Winners Begin Receiving Confirmation Emails

The ticket lottery for Apple's 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference ended this morning at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and it appears that developers who won tickets are now receiving confirmation emails.

Apple has said all developers who won the ticket lottery can expect to see their credit cards charged with the $1,599 ticket fee by Monday, April 3 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, but some developers are already being charged.

WWDC 2017 website
Apple has used a lottery system to dole out WWDC tickets in recent years because interest in the conference far exceeds capacity. Approximately 5,000 developers are expected to attend the event, along with more than 1,000 Apple engineers and executives.

The 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference will start on Monday, June 5 and will last through Friday, June 9. The conference dates were first announced in mid-February, as this year's event will take place at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, instead of in San Francisco.

At the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple will host a keynote event to introduce new software updates, and developers will be able to attend more than 100 technical sessions and hands-on labs.

Developers who are not selected to purchase a ticket will be able to watch both the keynote event and sessions with engineers through the Apple Developer website and through the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

[doublepost=1491004957][/doublepost]It was nice in the beginning because it was for developers, real developers, not script kiddies, not CIOs, not MBAs. People did not spend $1599 to go to the keynote and not care about the sessions.

Apple should independently sell tickets to the keynote so real developers, people who breathe ObjC and (gak Swift) can attend sessions that expand thought, impart knowledge and accelerate product development.

the POSERS have overwhelmed WWDC. After attending every year since 1989 to the announcement of the iPhone, it is depressing knowing that the people who really benefit from this event, who really value this event, frequently are excluded.

Videos of sex are just as good as sex? Yea, right... Same for WWDC.

If you don't know (or are not going to spend 60 hrs a week learning) Objective C or at least Swift, AND you are going to WWDC, you SUCK!
You sound delightful.

I feel bad for the people who won't get to attend the keynote address in person when Apple reveals the new colors they have for the iPhone, iPad and watchbands.

To be fair though there are a lot of people that only go for the keynote. To be honest I've never been to WWDC and I couldn't care about the keynote. I'm more interested in the sessions themselves.
