Hello! We’re running our famous iOS Developer Training again in Melbourne, on May 9 and May 10 this year. We’ll be teaching the latest iOS app development techniques, with Swift. We’re taking expressions of interest, which require no commitment, and will get you a discount code for when registrations actually open! If you have any questions, feel free to email me. Check it, and register your interest, over at the Secret Lab site: http://www.secretlab.com.au/training/ios-mel-2016
This event has now passed! But there’ll be more in the future! If you want to learn Swift, check out our brand new book: Learning Swift.
Super awesome! Next week we’ll be running live online Swift programming training through O’Reilly Media. You can learn more and sign up over on the O’Reilly Media site.
I have the privilege of helping to organise /dev/world/2015, a conference for those developing for, and on, iOS and OS X. It’s a special privilege because our experiences with early /dev/world conferences back in 2008 helped us develop connections in the early iOS developer community, and ultimately start our company.
I therefore think that everyone should go to /dev/world, and there
are two ways is one way to get there at no cost. Pretty exciting! Option 1 is to submit a talk to /dev/world/2015. The deadline is 30 June. We’re welcoming to speakers of all levels of experience, public speaking experience, and any other attribute you might care to name. We’d love to have a talk from you! (submissions closed!)
Option 2 is to be a student at a University in Australia or New Zealand, and then join the AUC (it cost a mere $50). Once you’re a member of the AUC, in addition to getting access to discounted tickets to all our other events, you also get free admission to /dev/world/2015. Yep, totally free.
If you’re not a student,
and don’t feel like presenting at /dev/world/2015, you can get a discounted Early Bird ticket until 3 August 2015. If you have a question, feel free to email me: paris AT paris.id.au
/dev/world/2015 is here! Once again, I’m one of the organisers. The call for presenters is open until 30 June 2015.
Another month! Another book! We’ve updated our popular iOS Game Development Cookbook to cover Swift, so now it’s the iOS Swift Game Development Cookbook! Behold its wonder!
It’s currently available in Early Release unedited form, but will be launching soon.
The new book that I co-authored with Jon Manning and Tim Nugent is now available from O’Reilly Media. Swift Development with Cocoa covers programming for OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 using Apple’s new language. It’s getting great reviews, and it was a lot of fun to write.
We’re going to be running a 1-day Swift Developer Lab in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane in the coming months. These labs are designed for existing iOS developers to get up to speed with Swift development for iOS 8.
You can learn more about the labs over at Secret Lab’s training page. Tickets are available at $250 (which is half price) until 10 November 2014. We’d love to see you there!
