FAQ - try! Swift Tokyo

Questions

What language will the conference be in?

try! Swift Tokyo is a bilingual conference. Most talks will be in English, and some in Japanese. All talks will be simultaneously translated from English -> Japanese or from Japanese -> English through your personal headset (it'll feel like magic!). The translators will also be present during Office Hours with the speakers, so you can ask your questions in either English or Japanese!

What is your refund policy?

You can request a refund by emailing us your order number to [email protected]. Note that we cannot issue refunds after January 1st due to expenses associated with your ticket purchase. However, we will transfer your ticket to someone else at any time.

Can I get a receipt for my ticket?

Upon purchasing the ticket, you will receive a receipt from Eventbrite. Unfortunately, we cannot issue custom receipts.

What is the format of try! Swift Tokyo?

The main conference days for try! Swift Tokyo are March 1st and 2nd, with optional Peer Labs and various workshops on March 3rd.

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. 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!
