WWDC Ballmer wont be presenting at San Francisco

It seems that contrary to a recently published report Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer will not be presenting at the Apple WWDC in two weeks time.

An article from Paul Krill over at pcworld.com reports that Microsoft is still interested in providing tools to build Apple applications. There was speculation that Ballmer would be appearing at the San Francisco event in two weeks time, in order to talk about Visual Studio 2010.

But subsequently there has been a Microsoft twitter message which rejects the notion of Ballmer speaking at the conference. Which claims “Steve Ballmer not speaking at Apple Dev Conf, Nor appearing on Dancing with Stars, Nor riding in the Belmont.

The company are however looking into the specifics of Objective C support according to a Microsoft representative. Visual Studio 2010 accommodations for Objective C would benefit Microsoft though Visual Studio currently doesn’t support Objective C.
