WWDC 2011 Sells Out in Under 12 Hours

Serenity Caldwell, for Macworld:

While WWDC has been selling out before its opening day since 2008, this year’s speedy turnaround is particularly noteworthy: Apple’s conference last year in 2010 took eight days to fill to capacity, while it took a whole month for the 2009 event to sell out. As previous conferences have primarily focused on either Apple’s mobile or desktop OS, but never both, it’s likely the promised double-whammy of available tracks for both the Mac and iOS attracted a much larger pool of developers than last year’s iOS-centric conference.

I don’t know about that. I think it likely would have sold out in the same amount of time even if Apple’s entire announcement had consisted of nothing but “WWDC 2011 tickets are now on sale”. This is the conference for the hottest development platform.
