Passes for Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference sold out in eight days, a record time. The 2009 event took a month to sell out.

WWDC 2010 will be held June 7-14 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. Apple says the five-day conference includes the first ever iPad development sessions and hands-on working labs for iPhone OS 4, as well as Mac OS X core technology labs (though the focus is definitely more on the iPhone OS).

There will be five iPad and five iPhone Apple Design Award winners announced at WWDC 2010 (alas, Mac apps need not apply). There’s no requirement to enter and winners will be selected from the Apple App Store based on criteria that includes design, technical excellence, innovation, quality, technology adoption and performance.
