As Apple prepares for the first Worldwide Developers Conference of the post-Jobs era, set to begin next week in San Francisco, developers everywhere are looking forward to the latest technologies in iOS and OS X.
With six technical tracks, more than 100 sessions and labs, and a keynote from CEO Tim Cook, we expect it to be a big week for the developing world.
