The WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) is an annual conference for Apple Developer Connection members. Historically, the conference has been strictly a developers conference with focus on developer sessions and technologies. After Apple pulled out of summer MacWorld Expo conference, the developer's conference has become more of a launching ground for new Apple technologies and products. However, these announcements tend to be focused on the Professional market, rather than the Consumer market.
