The North American agenda could be likened to WWDC; but it's smaller and it's free. There are several tracks: Introduction to Objective-C and Cocoa Touch, iPhone Development Tools Overview, Basic and Advanced UIKit and Device Features, iPhone User Interface Design, iPhone Game Development Technologies, Maximizing Your Application's Performance on iPhone, and Submitting to the App Store using iTunes Connect.
Another track focuses corporate development, including the sessions Getting started with iPhone Web applications, Using Advanced Web Technologies on iPhone, Integrating iPhone with IT, and In-house Application Development for iPhone.
In other regions, a reduced session outline will be presented. Apple warns that seating is limited and so it's recommended that you sign up as soon as possible. WWDC in 2008 was the first WWDC to have ever sold out so you can expect that these sessions will also fill up quickly.
