FAQ - try! Swift NYC

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 300+ attendees from all over the United States and the world at try! Swift NYC!

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 NYC?

The main conference days for try! Swift NYC are September 4th and 5th, with various optional workshops on September 3rd. To get the most out of the conference days, we highly recommend attending the 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 anything new Apple has announced 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!

How can my organization get involved?

try! Swift is a community conference, and we really need everyone's help to make it happen! The easiest way to get involved is by attending. If you're a manager, 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].
