Apple Lays Out WWDC Game Track
10:09 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Apple Computer is building steam for this year's World Wide Developer's Conference, and they have updated both the WWDC page and their Game Developers site with details on game-related events. With a full seventeen separate sessions dedicated to game-related topics, this WWDC will allow Mac game developers and porters to delve deeply into advanced technologies, performance optimization, and (of course) game development and optimization for Mac OS X.

The sessions themselves cover the gamut of topics from Quartz (the 2D imaging API for Mac OS X) to QuickTime to OpenGL, with four separate sessions dedicated to that cross-platform 3D graphics API. There will be a session on tuning performance for Carbon apps, one dedicated to the sound APIs available under OS X, and a much-anticipated session on device input that we're sure will be packed with game developers. In addition, two of the seventeen sessions are dedicated to soliciting developer feedback on OpenGL and games technologies in general.

If you happen to be a developer, or are curious about what is going to be discussed at the event, make sure you jump to the WWDC site and read more -- the lessons learned there and the feedback offered to Apple will literally shape the course of Mac gaming for the next year to come.
