The moment WWDC 2012 tickets and registration became available they sold out within hours, which upset a lot of Apple developers that still want tickets to WWDC. The good news is some people don’t want their tickets for a number of reasons although the bad news is they cannot sell these tickets, although Cocoa China wants to help by getting Apple’s attention over the amount of people not planning on using a ticket they purchased and showing how many Apple developers still want tickets to WWDC 2012.
When Apple allowed the tickets to be sold last year they didn’t go cheap — Apple officially said that tickets sold out “within 2 hours“, and the original price was $1,599, and last year people selling tickets took advantage of demand and sold for 2 or 3 times the price. This year Apple didn’t want the same problems and put a ban on selling tickets to WWDC 2012.
The website setup to catch Apple’s attention is called “WWDC Wait List“, and can be found here with two boxes for those wanting to be added to the list and another for anyone wanting a refund but know Apple’s tickets are “non-refundable“.
The World Wide Developer Conference is to be held June 11-15 in San Francisco, and there are plenty of rumors flying around involving a new MacBook Pro for 2012 and even iOS 6 getting a preview. One thing you can count on is no official word from Apple until WWDC and this is one reason devs want to get tickets to the event.
What do you think of the idea behind WWDC Wait List, and do you still want to buy a ticket for WWDC 2012?
