WWDC 1990 »

Brendan Shanks:

Although circumstances have unfortunately forced the upcoming 2020 Worldwide Developers Conference to be online-only, I thought it would be fun to look back 30 years to WWDC 1990, the second conference held (and the first for which a CD was published).

On May 7-11, 1990, Apple Computer held the second-ever Worldwide Developers Conference at the (then-new) San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA. A newsgroup post indicates that the attendance fee was $195 per day, and hotels were available for $56-135 a night.

Be sure to click through to Brendan’s post which fully outlines the conference and its sessions. It’s a real gem.
