Apple today sent out an email to registered developers opening registration for the annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, CA. The event runs between Monday, June 3 and Friday, June 7, and will most likely kick off with the usual keynote on Monday.

The theme of this year’s event is “Write code. Blow minds.” and Apple appears to have channeled the spirit of Steve Jobs in the announcement saying “This is your chance to join thousands of coders, creators, and
crazy ones this summer to do the insanely great.” Both of those statements were used to market the Mac, which might point to a more Mac-centric event than in the past few years. Perhaps this is the event where new Macs will be announced, and it could be that Apple’s “code once, work on everything” Project Marzipan will finally give macOS support for iOS apps.

Many familiar icons are in the wild-looking graphic: macOS Launchpad, Swift, the iOS share sheet icon, the Metal graphics API icon, and even the “Do Not Disturb” icon. But what’s the meaning of the Star Trek “Live Long and Prosper” hand signal in the upper right of the graphic?

This should be a fun event. If you’re a developer, click the registration button at the bottom of the email to get in the lottery to attend.
