Apple announces date for 2014 WWDC

Posted by Justin Hesser on April 7, 2014

Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is one of the top software conventions in the industry. Last year, the company gave developers the first view of iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 Mavericks. These were then put into Beta and those with access started troubleshooting.

According to Tech Day, this year's annual event will be held June 2 through 6 at San Francisco's Moscone West. The five-day convention will again present the future of both the mobile and computer operating systems and if history holds true, this years event will have announcements that point to the next big moves for the company and consumers.

While tech enthusiasts will focus on this event because it is a major unveiling for the company, it also means that partner companies will need to adjust to change. Aside from software, the company has also unveiled hardware upgrades like the radically redesigned black cylinder Mac Pro that was unveiled last year.

For companies like FileMaker, this is the unveiling of the platform and hardware that their solution will be paired with.

As we reported last month, FileMaker recently announced its Developer Conference for July 28-31. It is highly likely that what is announced at the WWDC will impact this event, as it could have a direct impact of what the company has planned.

Regardless of what is announced by Apple, it will play a role in the future of solutions that are created by custom database software developers that use FileMaker as their primary tool.
