Students who impress Apple by creating their own app have a chance at attending this year's Worldwide Developers Conference for free.
Apple's WWDC 2013 scholarship will reward 150 winners with one free ticket apiece to join the , which runs from June 10 to June 14 in San Francisco. To qualify, you must be a full-time or part-time student, 13 years or older, and a current member of Apple's iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer University Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program, or Mac Developer Program.
Assuming you meet those qualifications, what's your homework assignment to score a free ticket? You have to create an app that tells Apple just who you are. As the company explains it:
Use your creativity and coding skills to build an app that tells us about you. Your app should highlight development projects you've worked on, your educational and professional background, technical skills, and interests.
The app itself must be designed for iOS or the Mac, programmed using Objective-C, and signed with a digital certificate issued to you as part of your Apple Developer Program membership.
Interested students can submit an application starting April 29 at 9 a.m. PT. All applications have to be in by May 2 at 5 p.m. PT. The application overview form provides a few more details.
Good luck to any of you willing to give it a shot.
