If you want to attend Apple’s sold-out Worldwide Developers Conference in June, you’ll have to pay an exorbitant price. WWDC sold out in record time (under 12 hours).

Now sellers on eBay and Craigslist are offering tickets at prices ranging from $2,500 to over $3,000. Tickets were originally $1,600.

“Last year, WWDC sold out in eight days, indicating that Apple has somehow become an even a hotter ticket as developers rush for gold to be had in building and selling products for iPhone, iPad, Mac and other Apple platforms,” says “Network World” (http://macte.ch/gPKnK).

Apple will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference June 6 through June 10 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. At this year’s five-day conference Apple will unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS, including demonstrations of the new kinds of apps that developers can build using Apple’s advanced frameworks and more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers.

Mobile developers will be able to explore the latest innovations and capabilities of iOS and learn how to greatly enhance the functionality, performance and design of their apps. Mac developers will see and learn how to develop Mac OS X Lion applications using its latest technologies and capabilities. Developers can even bring their code to the labs and work with Apple engineers, applying development techniques and best-practices to enhance their apps.

Activities at Apple’s WWDC 2011 include:

° More than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of technology-specific topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and Mac OS technologies;

° Over 1,000 Apple engineers providing developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques, and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and Mac OS technologies in their apps;

° The opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iPad, iPhone and Mac developers from around the world; and

° Apple Design Awards which recognize iPad, iPhone and Mac apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design.
