FAQ - try! Swift India

How is a Conference different from a Meetup?

A meetup is usually a small local gathering of people with shared interests that takes place monthly or weekly and lasts for about 2 - 3 hours each time, usually in the evenings. In contrast, a conference is a big international event that spans several days and that only typically happens once a year. We’re expecting 20+ international speakers and 500 attendees from all over India and the world at try! Swift India!

By attending a conference such a try! Swift, you expose yourself to people and thinking about your field from all over the world, not just your locale. This will help you get ahead in your career - you will learn the latest technologies and have the opportunity to make connections with very important people in the global community.

What is the format of try! Swift India?

The main conference days for try! Swift India are November 16th and 17th, with Beginner and Advanced Swift workshops offered the day before on November 15th. To get the most out of the conference days, we highly recommend attending the Beginner and Swift workshops the day before the conference.

During the conference days, there will be 20+ international speakers giving 20-minute presentations each about various Swift topics such as Open-Source Swift, Server-Side Swift and Swift on Android, as well as using Swift for iOS, watchOS, and tvOS development, and any new platforms Apple will announce at their annual WWDC conference. There will also be a few presentations about other important career-related topics, such as design and workplace best practices.

In addition to 20-minute presentations by our impressive international speakers, attendees will have the option to attend one-on-one office hours with each speaker. The official office hours are timed at 20 minutes, but usually these discussions last much longer, making this the most valuable part of the conference for both attendees and speakers. Speaker office hours are relatively unique to the try! Swift conference - most conferences only have a 5-minute public Q&A after each talk. Make sure to take this opportunity to meet the speaker in person and ask them about any issues you’re facing in your code that they may be an expert on!
