Workshops

Building an Interactive iMessage app

In this workshop, learn how to make an interactive iMessage app using Swift 3 and Xcode 8. In this app, you will be able to create an event and poll your friends to see who will be able to attend. Once your invite is sent, you will be able to keep track of which of your friends will be able to make it and which one of them will not. No programming knowledge necessary as all levels are welcome.

Conference Proposal Writing

This workshop is designed to empower you to go out into the community and share your amazing work and knowledge. To help you get started speaking, we'll look at what makes for an effective abstract and bio, and how the right combination can position *you* as the right person to speak!

RxSwift: Reactive Programming in Swift

Reactive programming is a paradigm to simplify state management in software applications. RxSwift is an implementation of reactive programming in our favourite programming language. In this workshop, Ash Furrow will go into the details of how RxSwift works and how to incorporate reactive programming into your applications.

Contributing to Open Source Swift

Swift has been open source for over a year with over 450 contributors, and contributing is a very rewarding experience. This workshop will help you setup your development environment, find a small bug to work on, and step through the development cycle. An accepted PR isn't the goal here, it is to explore the compiler, learn something new, and have fun. At the end of the day we hope to have everyone comfortable exploring and editing code, compiling Swift, and running the unit tests. Working on the compiler does require some comfort with C++, but if you're looking to stick to writing in Swift, there are still opportunities in the standard library and Foundation! The full development environment is pretty big, with the code taking up 2 gigs of space, and a full build directory taking up between 40 and 60! Given the time and space that this takes, all of the instructions we will be following will be sent out before the workshop. To get the most from the workshop time, we like you step through the instructions the week before the workshop. It's only a handful of commands, but it's a lot of time and bits!

More amazing workshops will be announced in the next few weeks!
