Apple announced yesterday the official dates of its annual developer conference in which the company shows its advances in software. On June 3 will begin WWDC 19 with a keynote in which Apple will show us its software innovations, among which we will find iOS 13, macOS 10.15, watchOS 6 and tv 13 along with a large number of tools for developers.
And this week is the most important of the year for a fundamental part of the functioning of Apple, developers who create applications for all systems of the company. Apple has a lottery system by which attendees who have registered to attend the WWDC are elected. Here developers will learn to learn and collaborate with other developers and with Apple engineers.
Without a doubt, it is a unique experience, but it has a price, specifically 1,599 dollars. However, there is a way to go to the WWDC for free and is getting one of the scholarships for students that Apple offers.
What do you have to do to get Apple to choose you?
To get your passport to WWDC you must complete a series of tasks that Apple explains on their website and they will be responsible for selecting the developers who will get not only a ticket for WWDC 19 but also a year of free use of the Apple Developer Program.
Steps to get a student scholarship for WWDC 19:
Create an application or Swift Playground game individually, it is not worth doing in a group.
You must be over 16 if you are from the European Union.
Be registered as a developer for free or be part of the Apple Developer Program.
Be enrolled in an accredited academic institution or have graduated in secondary education or its equivalent in the last 6 months.
In addition, you will write a small letter in which you tell something about yourself, about your application or game and about your school or university.
The deadline to submit your application is Sunday, March 24, 2019, and all applicants will be notified on Monday, April 15, 2019, about whether or not they have been chosen to attend WWDC 19.
