As the developer community prepares for Apple to unveil its latest software efforts at the company’s WWDC keynote later this morning, there are a younger subset of student developers feverishly roaming about excited to see what they can build next too.
WWDC is a pretty pricey affair at $1,599 per ticket.
Like some other tech companies, Apple has opted to make it a bit easier for students to attend their conference.
They’ve done so through a scholarship where younger developers can submit applications and, if selected, get into the event for free with their lodging paid for as well.
The more than 350 scholarship recipients this year represented 42 different countries and 34 languages.
This year, those students got another added perk as their regular agenda was interrupted by a trip to Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus and a meet-and-greet with CEO Tim Cook.
