/dev/world/2018

The iOS, macOS, Swift, and general Apple development conference that I help run, /dev/world is looking for presenters! We’ve opened the CFP for our 11th event (we’ve been going for 11 years! That’s nuts!) and we’re very excited.

If you have a good idea for a talk, please send it our way! I might wear my space suit again.

/dev/world/2017

Way back in 2008 I spoke at the first edition of a little conference called /dev/world… it was a great experience, and one that really helped me find my feet in the software development community, and especially in the Apple technology community. It was fabulous.

Screenshot of my original blog from when I first attended the first /dev/world, in 2008.

I spoke at every /dev/world from then on, up to and including 2012, and since then I’ve been helping my friend Tony Gray run the conference (along with Tim Nugent, Jon Manning, and a few other ne’er-do-wells). /dev/world/2017 will be the 10th edition of /dev/world, and I couldn’t be more excited.

We’ve got an amazing lineup of presenters, including keynotes from Sal Soghoian (former head of user automation at Apple, including AppleScript and Automator), Marc Edwards, Russell Ivanovic, Jake MacMullin, and Matt Gallagher, and talks on everything from accessibility to ARKit to Swift Promises to Unity 3D. Early bird tickets are available at devworld.com.au for the rest of this week!

/dev/world totally changed my professional life, and we’ve worked hard to create a programme for the 10th /dev/world that’s deserving of the legacy and name! Join us?
