We are happy to announce that all ticket sales from iOSDevCampDC 2020 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 2020.” 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
iOSDevCampDC 2020 is a one-day, one-track conference focused on Apple platform and Swift development held virtually this year.

Like many of you, I’ve spent much of these past months at home writing code, cooking, and baking bread. It’s amazing how many different breads we can make from flour, salt, water, and yeast. In this talk we look at the lessons from cooking and baking and apply them to combinators and building the language of your app from components and ways to build, adapt, and combine them in Swift, SwiftUI, and Combine.
Maintaining cross-platform cryptographic library is a journey full of unexpected bugs, language-specific hacks, difficult decisions and endless struggle to make developer-facing APIs easy-to-use and hard-to-misuse. We will talk about API design, multi-platform specifics (oh iOS), testing and supporting documentation. The talk will be useful for anyone who has their own open source project; or uses one :)
This is a talk covering the practical use of the new features added to Xcode 12 and iOS 14 that provide a very different StoreKit purchase testing flow than used to be possible.
Swift is available to run on large server to small wearables. In this talk, Leo talks about his experience building Heartwitch for the Apple Watch while building the server component using Vapor. We talk about managing sessions, setting up a database, setting up APIs and Websockets and more. If you are interested in the experience of building both ends of the application in Swift, this talk is for you.
Demonstrate how complex JSON fetched from Google's Remote Config can be serialized into Swift types, allowing developers to leverage Remote Config for more complex use cases. Talk with work through actual example and share source code at the end, if possible.
In this talk, we will check some tricks inside the incredible world of Kotlin Multiplatform for iOS. Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile (KMM) is an SDK that allows you to use the same business logic code in both iOS and Android applications. We will talk about getting started with this tool from Jetbrains, with the full support of iOS-specific APIs From Core ML and CloudKit to Ktor, SQLitedelight, and other tools. You don’t have to be an expert to start experimenting with Kotlin Multiplatform, you just need to believe in the magic of Kotlin.
Let’s learn about the new UICollection view features. Creating outlines that can expand and collapse, how to build lists with compositional layout to create UITableView-like interfaces with a collection view. How to dequeue cells and configure their content and styling.
This talk will introduce the new WidgetKit framework, including the features and limitations of widgets in iOS 14. We will also walk through how to build a simple widget, so that you can learn how to take advantage of WidgetKit to give your users quick access to your app's best features.
So you want to learn SwiftUI? But you read things like “SwiftUI is an incredibly ambitious project and is going to take several years before it’s on par with UIKit and AppKit”. Or “Why SwiftUI Is Not Ready for Production Yet” or “SwiftUI cons: Why I don't use it in production”.
In this talk, I will discuss why each one of these quotes is dead wrong and why you can’t listen to them. I talk about why and how you need to change your mindset in making the transition to SwiftUI. I have been using SwiftUI since day one and yes it has flaws but so does UIKit and it doesn’t stop people from submitting UIKit apps nor from submitting SwiftUI apps.
