Earlier today, tickets for Apple’s WorldWide Developer Conference went on sale. As you probably heard by now, they were sold out in less than two minutes.
Unfortunately, a number of developers who tried to buy the tickets for the conference got error messages stating that their request could not be processed.
But looks like Apple is now reaching out to these developers to offer them tickets to WWDC. Developer Eric Doleki who had got the error while trying to buy the WWDC ticket, reports that he was contacted by Apple and offered a ticket. He writes on 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.
It’s good to see Apple reaching out to developers and giving them a second chance to buy the WWDC tickets, as it would have been extremely disappointing to miss out.
If you’ve been in a similar situation as Doleki and were offered a WWDC ticket by Apple, then we would love to hear your story.
