In Cupertino they don’t stop announcing things about the expected WWDC 2013. This year they have also remembered small programmers, and will draw 150 tickets to student children over 13 years who are able to program an application that Apple proposes, where they will demonstrate their skills and good work to access to enjoy the week from 10 to 14 June.
Without a doubt, WWDC is the best place in the world to learn how to be a better programmer for iOS and OS X. The only problem is that a ticket for this developers’ conference is incredibly expensive, and as if this wasn’t enough it is quite difficult to buy tickets because they sell out in a matter of hours .
But Apple also thinks about the little ones, who are somehow the future. Therefore, to help them with the financial barrier of 1200 euros that one of these passes costs, they have announced that they will draw 150 tickets for students . The only requirements are to be an enrolled student, and to make an amazing application for iOS.
To enter the competition, children must be over 13 years old and a registered member of the current Apple developer program . Participants will show their knowledge by developing an application that Apple will ask them for. This application should show development projects, educational and professional knowledge, as well as technical skills and interests.
The 150 students chosen will get a free ticket to attend the conference between the 10th and 14th. What we don’t know is if they will also be able to attend Tim Cook’s opening presentation. The contest opens on May 2nd, and Apple will announce the winners on May 16th .
So if you’re a child prodigy and you have what it takes to develop an app to Apple’s liking, start looking for flights and a hotel, because Apple doesn’t pay for travel and accommodation, which will make many back down , as intercontinental flights can be worth almost as much as the ticket, and not everyone can afford such expenses. It would have been at least interesting if Cupertino’s billionaires had paid these expenses as well.
