Heads up, developers: Apple has just announced that its 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will take place from June 4 to June 8.

The conference will be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. If you are interested in participating, you can apply for a ticket on the WWDC website now through March 22nd at 10 am PDT.

“Tickets will be issued through a random selection process, and developers will be notified of the status of applications by 23 March at 5 pm PDT,” Apple wrote in a press release. Tickets are limited and expensive: the one will set you back $1,599.

Meanwhile, novice developers can snag a free. Apple is planning to make the price go up to 350 WWDC Scholarships—including a ticket to the conference plus a one-year membership in the Apple Developer Program—”talented students and STEM organization members.” Fair entries open 26 March; details on how to apply are available on the WWDC website.

If you don’t secure a ticket or scholarship, you do not need to miss it completely. Apple will be live streaming the conference on the developer of the website, as well as the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV devices.

The WWDC is usually (but not always) a software show, with Apple showing off the latest versions of iOS and macOS. Last year at WWDC, Apple presented a number of new hardware, including the new iPad Pros, the Siri-backed HomePod speaker, the iMac Pro and the new iMacs.

For what the company has in store this year, we will just have to wait and see.
