WWDC 2014 dates confirmed, tickets by random selection
Apple has announced dates for its annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC). The WWDC 2014 conference will be held from 2 June to 6 June at San Francisco's Moscone West exhibition centre.

The Cupertino-based company said in a press note, "At this year's five-day conference, developers from around the world will learn about the future of iOS and OS X, giving them the latest tools and technologies to continue creating the most innovative apps for the millions of iOS and Mac customers worldwide."

Apple has revealed that this year's WWDC conference will see about 100 technical sessions and over 1,000 Apple engineers.

Notably, the tickets for WWDC 2013 - the 24th edition of Apple's annual developers conference, were sold out in a record 90 seconds. As a comparison, WWDC 2012, the 23rd edition of Apple's annual developers conference, was sold out in 1 hour 43 minutes.

It seems Apple, considering the rush, has decided to push for a new strategy for attendees - seemingly following in Google's footsteps. The company has announced random selection of tickets to attendees.

The company notes in a statement, "Developers can apply for tickets via the WWDC website now through Monday, 7 April 2014 at 10:00 a.m. PDT, and tickets will be issued to attendees through random selection. Developers will know their status by Monday, April 7 at 5:00 p.m. PDT."

Google had also announced a similar system in March for its I/O 2014 conference, where after registration attendees would be selected at random.

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing said in the statement, "We have the most amazing developer community in the world and have a great week planned for them. Every year the WWDC audience becomes more diverse, with developers from almost every discipline you can imagine and coming from every corner of the globe. We look forward to sharing with them our latest advances in iOS and OS X so they can create the next generation of great apps."

At WWDC 2013, Apple unveiled iOS 7 with a complete UI overhaul, apart from iTunes Radio free music streaming service and its new line of OS X Mavericks and Mac Pro.
