We are happy to announce that all ticket sales from iOSDevCampDC 2018 will directly benefit Women Who Code DC. iOSDevCampDC has been a community-run conference from the beginning and we have been breaking even every year. This year, we are glad to announce that all the costs for t-shirts, badges, signs, food and drinks will be paid for by Capital One. This is on top of their sponsorship of the Capital One event space in McLean.
We looked around at how we could best use the money we normally get from ticket sales. We have been wanting to encourage more women to join the technology field, particularly in mobile app development.
So we are going to donate all the proceeds from ticket sales to one of the awesome new members of our local tech community, Women Who Code DC! Just like iOSDevCampDC is the local satellite of the umbrella organization iOSDevCamp, Women Who Code DC is the local affiliate of Women Who Code. Women Who Code state on their website: “Your gift also positively fuels our growth, development, and goal of connecting five million women in technology by the year 2019.” We hope our donation will help get Women Who Code closer to that goal even faster, especially in the DC area.
Women Who code (WWCode) is a global non-profit 501(c)3 organization which inspires women to excel in technology careers. We believe that innovation is driven by diversity and that the tech industry will be even better once women are no longer underrepresented.
Women Who Code was founded in 2011 and has since grown to 10,000 members spanning 12 countries. To date, WWCode has produced more than 450 events worldwide, boasts a growth rate of nearly 1,000 members per month, and launches in a new city every week.
Our key initiatives include: technical study groups, hack nights, career development workshops, and panel discussions featuring influential technology experts and investors.www.womenwhocode.com
Our chapter is focused on providing women with tangible programming skills to expand their career opportunities.
We are made up of a lot of study groups that learn anything in the "full stack" of development (aka from the very back end of coding involving networks and security, to the front end involving scripting and styling). Whether you love Python or are trying to learn anything you can - we are a group that allows you to pick and choose whatever fits your learning style!www.womenwhocodedc.com

Since completing degrees in anthropology, law, and physics from Princeton, Yale, and Columbia respectively, Aileen Nielsen has worked in corporate law, physics research laboratories, and, most recently, NYC startups oriented towards improving daily life for under-served populations - particularly groups who have yet to fully enjoy the benefits of mobile technology. She has interests ranging from defensive software engineering to UX designs for reducing cognitive load to the interplay between law and technology. In addition to engineering One Drop's diabetes-management products by day, Aileen currently serves as a member of the New York City Bar Association's Science and Law Committee, where she chairs a subcommittee devoted to exploring and advocating for scientifically-driven regulation - and deregulation - of new and existing technologies.
Arthur Ariel Sabintsev is one of the lead iOS engineers at The Washington Post. He currently leads iOS development on the "Arc Publishing" team, where he builds iOS apps for news publishers around the world. He’s spent the last 4 years teaching Swift & Objective-C at General Assembly & Betamore, and writing over a dozen open source libraries for the community. Before leaving his Ph.D. program, he was an experimental nuclear physicist who worked underground colliding subatomic and subnuclear particles.

Korhan is a Senior Engineering Manager at Capital One leading Mobile R&D and Innovation teams and has worked on a number of projects including the award winning flagship iOS app. Previously, he’s worked on a variety of fields ranging from building Windows graphics drivers for Nvidia GPUs, computer vision aided animation and physics simulation tools for games, a JS profiler for the ADF Framework, the Safari browser, and many mobile apps. Outside of work, he spends most of his time with his 2.5 year old daughter and plays lead guitars in a rock band.
Louie is the Lead Organizer of iOSDevCampDC (sometimes referred to as LouieConf) and Director of Engineering at Capital One.
In his spare time, he likes to hack on open source, make IoT projects and play Overwatch, Factorio and StarCraft with his seven sons.
Samuel is a developer well-versed in the rituals of writing developer tools that occasionally work. By day, Samuel works on making the mobile developer experience at Square less arduous; by night he can be found breaking Bundler and CocoaPods. Before this whole "developer" thing, Samuel studied in the highly impractical Mathematics & Economics departments at UChicago, learning subjects such as "numbers", "social theory", and "memes". When not coding, Samuel is often in the kitchen, marveling at the fact that dinner smells better than it looks.
Tanvi is an iOS developer on the Yahoo! News team. She's also an experienced OS X and Web Developer, and holds a Masters Degree in Computer Science from New York University. Apart from being a software engineer, she is a reader, traveller and adventurous eater!

A description of the theory and example implementations of OCR, text-to-speech, speech-to-text, object detection, and sentiment classification in a tour of the history of machine learning as related to each of these applications. I would also provide a brief overview of how these can easily be brought into an app with existing open source models.
At Arc Publishing, a new venture that is a part of The Washington Post, we have begun building native mobile applications for other news publishers, like The LA Times, The Chicago Tribune, and The Globe and Mail, to name a few. In the process of scaling to 50 iOS apps, that have millions of users, wildly different feature sets, and that have to be kept synchronized with each other, we've had to template our architecture and automate our entire development and deployment process. Come learn how we built a scalable white label iOS app architecture in Swift that powers many of the App Store's top 150 news apps.
CODETools is a suite of tools to help implement and standardize the checks that we require of our mobile code submissions. Historically, with the sheer quantity of repositories, it’s been difficult to maintain consistency in how to perform PR checks and resulted in some frustration. No more! CODETools is helping to solve this issue by automating these essential tasks one feature at a time. It’s been an exciting ride, come hear about it and I’ll share some unexpected insights!
We all love Swift. But until Xcode 9, using Swift libraries meant using dynamic frameworks. For many reasons, some apps are unwilling (or unable) to use dynamic frameworks, which meant pulling in Swift dependencies had been impossible. Now, however, it's possible to build Swift code into static libraries, and even CocoaPods has support for that feature. We'll take a quick tour through all the steps necessary to package Swift code into a static library, some of the gotchas involved in importing static Swift libraries, and a few of ways these changes to the build process can improve the use of Objective-C libraries.
Talking about how Notification Extensions can be utilized for enhanced push notifications as well as tracking user engagement.
Cross-platform mobile frameworks are gaining popularity for good reasons. They're matching the native look ∧ feel and performance, the developers are quite happy with the tooling, and the tech stack is ready for production. This is great news if you're about to start developing a new app from the ground up. How about your existing apps that are in production, have a large codebase, and you can't afford a rewrite? In this talk, we'll explore some ways to see if your existing apps can take advantage of cross-platform mobile frameworks so that you can have your cake and eat it too.
At WWDC 2018, Apple announced they’re beginning the deprecation process on OpenGL. But what does that mean to you as a developer exactly? Perhaps you watched the session on porting OpenGL to Metal and felt your brain melt from your ears.
Never fear! Janie Clayton, author of The Metal Programming Guide, is here to demystify what exactly y’all need to utilize Metal in your applications. Janie will explain exactly how much Metal you need to know and how to utilize higher levels of abstraction.
