Apple selected some developers to join the conference as all WWDC tickets sold out in two minutes. Apple is offering these developers another opportunity to take part in WWDC 2013. As all the tickets for Worldwide Developers Conference 2013 by Apple were sold out in moments after sale opened. There are many developers left which tried to purchase tickets but get an error messages stating that their purchase requests were unable to be processed.
According to MacRumors, several developers on Twitter shared the Apple's offer to purchase tickets. Daniel Jalkut, Red Sweater Software founder, is one of the developers who tweeted about the offer. He stated in his tweet that Apple contacted some registered members of its developer program to offer them a second chance to purchase a WWDC ticket.
Eric Doleki is also tried to purchase tickets but could not succeed. Yet he is a lucky guy as after some time on the same day, he received a call from Apple. He wrote all details of the Apple phone call in his blog.
"I pick up and a nice guy tells me he's from Apple Developer Support and that they noticed that I tried to purchase a ticket today and that the transaction didn't go through. I told him that was true. I thought the next thing out of his mouth would be an apology or something – just to be nice.
He then proceeds to tell me that he's got good news – a ticket has been reserved for me in my name and that I'll be receiving an email from Developer Support within 12 hours with instructions on how to purchase the pass. He thanked me for supporting the platform, etc."
Apart from Doleki, many other developers shared the information via Twitter to get phone calls from Apple. Exact number is not yet confirmed.
