WWDC 2020 & BUILD 2020 Will Be Online Events

Earlier today, Apple revealed the plan for their 2020 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The event will still take place in June but is going to a new online format. Details are still forthcoming, but we surmise it will be difficult to deliver the same learning experience via the Internet.

Software developers all over the world are expressing their disappointment, but the company is doing this to help curb the coronavirus outbreak in the US. As an added measure, Apple said they will donate $1,000,000 to local San Jose organizations in an effort offset associated revenue loss incurred from the new online format.

Just hours after Apple made this announcement, Microsoft announced their annual Developer’s Conference, BUILD 2020, will follow a similar online format. BUILD will take place May 19-21 virtually. The event was originally slated to take place in Seattle. Facebook already cancelled F8 which was scheduled for early-May in California.
