Bob Lee & Ritesh Gupta
This workshop is designed for developers who are interested in learning iOS app development with Swift. Even if you do not have any prior iOS programming experience, you will learn how to create an iOS app and understand the Swift basics by the end of the workshop. We'll look at Swift fundamentals like properties, optionals, access-controls, functions, protocols, structs, generics, enumerations, functional programming & error handling. We'll use Swift Playgrounds to explore some of these aspects of the language including the latest additions to Swift 4.0.

Pushkar Kulkarni & Rahul Katariya
The Advanced Swift workshop will enable Swift programmers appreciate some of the fundamentals of the Swift language in a deeper sense. We plan to dive deep into language concepts that programmers will eventually encounter in their iOS app development journey - collections, protocols and generics. We’d also demonstrate using custom operators to define beautiful operator-based custom languages within Swift! Different aspects of memory management will also be discussed. We will use Swift Playgrounds and language updates pertaining to Swift 4 will be adopted wherever applicable.

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 15+ international speakers and 250 attendees from all over India and the world at try! Swift India!

By attending a conference such as 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 day for try! Swift India is on November 19th, with workshops offered the day before on November 18th. To get the most out of the conference day, we highly recommend attending the one of the workshops the day before the conference.

During the conference day, there will be 15+ international speakers giving short presentations each about various Swift topics such as iOS development best practices, Open-Source Swift, Server-Side Swift and Swift on Android. There will also be a few presentations about other important career-related topics, such as design and workplace best practices.

In addition to 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!

How can my organization get involved?

try! Swift is coming to India for the very first time, so we need a lot of help from the community! We ask that you send your mobile team to the conference.

We are also looking for sponsors. If you’d like more information, please contact us at [email protected].
