Steve Jobs Gets the WWDC Party Started on June 7th

Apple announced today that the 2010 Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off in grand fashion next month.

Leading off the conference on Monday, June 7 will be Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who is scheduled to deliver a keynote address.

At that time, it is widely expected that the Apple chief will roll out the 4th generation iPhone.

According to Apple in the Cupertino-based company’s press release announcing Jobs’ participation, this year’s WWDC sold out in only eight days. Roughly 5,000 developers will be on hand for the 2010 Worldwide Developers Conference.

Last year during Steve Jobs’ medical leave, Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook had the responsibility of presenting at WWDC ’09 and announcing an upgraded iPhone.

Apple engineers will provide more than 100 solutions-oriented technical sessions and labs next month. Planned sessions for WWDC 2010 include: Application Frameworks; Internet & Web; Graphics & Media; Developer Tools; and Core OS.

WWDC 2010 gives an incredibly diverse community the opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iPhone, iPad and Mac developers from around the world.
