Steve Jobs and Bill Gates

Walter Mossberg and Kara Swisher interview Steve Jobs and Bill Gates at 'D5: All Things Digital' conference in Carlsbad, California, in 2007.

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook will be the opening speaker for this year’s D10 conference, marking 10 years of “D: All Things Digital.”

Cook will speak at the opening night of the conference when it kicks off on May 29 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., Kara Swisher announced on Tuesday. It will be Cook’s first appearance at the D conference, and his first time appearing onstage at an event not run by Apple or investors since he became CEO last August.

“We are looking forward to hearing Cook’s perspective on where the industry and Apple is going, and perhaps to get a glimpse into what makes its new leader — who is also a longtime Apple vet — tick,” Swisher wrote.
