Worldwide Developers Conference
The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, commonly abbreviated WWDC (usually pronounced dub dub dee cee or simply "dub dub" during the conference), is a conference held annually in California by Apple Inc. The conference is primarily used by Apple to showcase its new software and technologies for developers, as well as offering hands-on labs and feedback sessions. The number of attendees usually varies between 2,000 to 4,200 developers; however, during WWDC 2007, Steve Jobs noted that there were over 5,000 attendees. WWDC 2008–2014 were capped and sold out at 5,000 attendees (5,200 including special attendees).
