Apple is staying close to its home for its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 5-9 at McEnery San Jose Convention Center.
The conference is meant to inspire developers from all over the world to create the next great innovations and apps in use every day across Apple’s various product lines. More than 1,000 Apple engineers engage with the developers during the conference. A number of peripheral conference activities including the annual Beard Bash take place during the week at the Montgomery Theatre, City National Civic, Hilton and Marriott. The WWDC originated at San Jose Convention Center in 1988, stayed in San Jose until 2002 and moved to San Francisco 2003-2016. Steve Jobs and Tim Cook have provided the keynotes, also known as “Stevenotes.”
