scholarships that include a free ticket and lodging for the

year Apple changed the location of WWDC from the Moscone Center
in downtown San Francisco to the McEnery Convention Center in
San Jose. The change should make it cheaper for developers to
find hotels and other accommodations.

notify all WWDC lottery winners by April 3 at 5PM PT, which is
when credit cards will be charged the $1,600 entry fee.
