On Thursday March 13, 2008 Apple Inc. announced that its annual developers conference (WWDC) will take place from June 9 - 13 at the Moscone West convention center in downtown San Francisco.  The company also stated that this year's event dubbed WWDC 2008 will be a "landmark" event.

Apple posted the following statements at its WWDC web site:

"The groundbreaking innovations of Mac OS X Leopard and iPhone OS offer two revolutionary development platforms for developers and IT professionals. Immerse yourself with information-rich sessions where Apple engineers go in-depth on the innovative technologies that power the features of these sophisticated platforms. Bring your code to the Labs and work one-to-one with Apple engineers, applying development methods and best-practices you gain from sessions to enhance your application."

Three Tracks
Apple will have three distinct tracks at the conference; Mac Track, IT Track, and the new iPhone Track.

A Landmark Event

The event invite sent to developers and media outlets features an image of two Golden Gate bridges converging with a headline that states, "A landmark event. In more ways than one."

Steve Jobs Keynote
The annual event features a keynote presentation from Apple CEO Steve Jobs.  The keynote has often been the launchpad for new hardware and software announcements.  The iPhone is expected to have a significant role in the keynote thanks in part to the new iPhone Track and recent iPhone SDK release.
