Apple has unveiled the dates for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, which will run from 2-6 June this year.

WWDC 2014 will be held at San Francisco's Moscone West - an area GDC attendees will no doubt find familiar - but its tickets won't be available on a first-come, first-serve basis as they were last year when WWDC 2013 sold out in under two minutes.

Instead, tickets be available via random lottery.

Interested developers can click here to sign up for the lottery, but they won’t want to dally - the lottery closes at 10am PST (1pm EST/6pm GMT) on Monday 7 April.

Letting off some stream

WWDC 2014 will feature over 100 technical sessions, led by over 1,000 Apple engineers.

Sessions won't be streamed as they will be at Google's I/O, but Apple will stream the State of the Union address on Monday along with the Apple Design Awards.

Those who miss sessions won't miss out entirely, however, as videos of all sessions will be posted to Apple's developer website after they wrap up.

Apple is also partnering with the National Center for Women & Information Technology at WWDC 2014 in an effort to encourage more women to become coders and engineers.

Developers interested in attending can sign up for the lottery here. Those selected in the lottery will be notified via email and can purchase a ticket to the event for $1,599 (around £963).
