This year WWDC tickets got sold out in just a record two hours and many developers missed the chance to understand new Apple technologies and get hands on lab sessions and feedback sessions which could have aided them in their trade. For all those disgruntled developers, On Tuesday Apple released session videos of the World Wide Developers Conference that took place earlier this month.
- WWDC videos for registered developers.
Registered developers can now view more than about 100 videos from the conference. The videos are available for download on iTunes through iTunes U and they require a Developer Program login for access.

The session videos are divided into the following sections: general, essentials, app services, developer tools, graphics, media and games, Safari and Web and Core OS. The topics mainly focus on app development for iOS and OS X platforms with special focus given to Apple’s services and apps like iCloud, Game Center and the recently released PassBook.
People who are not registered developers with Apple, can just view the keynote address video which is now available on Apple’s website, YouTube and iTunes. The 2012 WWDC keynote address was marked by the announcement of iOS 6, new features of Mountain Lion and unveiling of new hardware. This effort by Apple to release WWDC session videos for developers clearly signifies how important the developer community is for Apple and also its contributions to Apple’s success story.
