Apple CEO Tim Cook delivered keynote address at WWDC June 2013 Conference…Below is the full transcript of the event…
Tim Cook – CEO, Apple Inc.
Thank you. Thank you… I’m really glad you like that. Those words mean a great deal to us, and you’ll see that reflected throughout the show today.
Welcome to the Worldwide Developers Conference. You’re going to have incredible week. This is our 24th WWDC. It’s the longest running developer conference that we’re aware of.
It’s truly worldwide. We have attendees this morning from over 60 countries and two-thirds of the people in the audience today are here for the first time.
No hazing from the upperclassman. We’ve got a great week planned for you with over 100 sessions and over 120 hands-on labs so you can bring in your code, get some help tuning it or get just about any question answered.
We also have over 1,000 engineers here this week, so grab them, make use of them, they’re here to help. But don’t ask them about future roadmaps.
Now, the Developer Program is incredibly vibrant. We have over six million registered developers with one and a half million of those added in the last year alone. Demand for this show has never been greater. We sold out in just over a minute.
I’m really sorry we couldn’t accommodate everyone. This is the biggest venue that we can get. But we are posting sessions online everyday so that developers can follow us remotely.
