WWDC Alerts

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is the biggest event for Apple developers around the world. It showcases the latest developments and innovations of iOS and Mac products, and many more.


The WWDC 2010 tickets sold out in 8 days and WWDC 2011 within just 12 hours. This left out many folks who were at work or simply couldn’t get access to the site early enough to grab a ticket for themselves. Among those who got their hands on the tickets were “scalpers” who put the tickets on eBay for much higher prices than the original price of $1599.

Could you imagine how fast WWDC 2012 would sell out?

Developers Anthony Herron and Aaron Wardle created WWDC Alerts to help developers reserve their spot for the WWDC.

WWDC Alerts will notify you via call and SMS as soon as we know the tickets are on sale regardless of your timezone. Whilst this isn’t a fix for those at vast altitudes in metal tin cans, there should hopefully be less anxiety about leaving the house as the date draws near and the tickets are made available. You’re welcome.

If you’re already keeping tabs on the latest news here on Digital Cupcake or elsewhere, you probably will already know when the tickets go on sale. However it wouldn’t hurt to sign up for the free service for the peace of mind that you’ll know the moment the tickets go on sale.

As far as privacy goes, here are their statements:

Privacy – Let’s keep this simple…

  • We won’t forward your details onto anybody, ever, ever Amen.
  • We will only contact you to let you know tickets are on sale.
  • We don’t even want to know your name.

If you want to be notified the moment that the tickets go on sale, go on over to WWDC Alerts and sign up. :)
