How much is a ticket to Apple's WWDC worth?
StillADotcommer 1 year ago
I was planning to go to WWDC (Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference) this June, but I didn't calendar "get WWDC tix" for today, and by the time I remembered it, the conference was already sold out. The cost was about $1600 for the entire conference, plus your annual $100 developers' fee. By this afternoon, tickets were already being offered at over $2500. I want to go, mostly because of Mountain Lion, but my company is not going to pay an extra thousand dollars or so because I was slack, and my attendance is not absolutely required. This would have been my first time attending WWDC. Would it be worth it to pony up the extra money myself to go for the info, or is mostly a conference on how awesome all things Apple are?
