Worldwide Apple Developers Conference 1989 (or DevCon '89) was a computer conference that was hosted by Apple Computer for its developers from May 9 to 12, 1989. It was Apple's 5th official developers conference, held for the first time at the newly-built San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California.
System 7 was the main upcoming product discussed at DevCon '89, though it did not yet support pre-emptive multitasking, which was planned as part of a future project which was rumored to be System 8. Apple and DEC had scheduled a joint seminar about Communications Toolkit.
