/dev/world/2016 tickets are now on sale! /dev/world is a fabulous iOS and OS X (and associated ecosystem) developer conference that played no small part in kickstarting many parts of my career, and for the last few years I’ve been helping to organise the event.
/dev/world/2016 runs in Melbourne on August 29-31, 2016. The conference covers developing on and for iOS and OS X, using Swift to Objective-C, and everything in between. We’re selling our best-priced early bird tickets right now over at devworld.com.au
We’ll be announcing more and more sessions, workshops, and feature presentations over the coming week. I’d love to see you in Melbourne! Let me know if you have any questions, or would like to sponsor the event.
We’re running iOS Development with Swift (programming) training online for O’Reilly Media in July. Registration is now open, and we’d love to have you aboard! Over two days, we’ll take you from no Swift to enough Swift for iOS apps, and an understanding of how to use the iOS frameworks. You can learn more, or register on the O’Reilly website. Attendees of the online training also receive a copy of new book, Learning Swift.
If you just want a discounted copy of our latest book, Learning Swift, you can currently buy the ebook at 50% off through O’Reilly’s Swift sale! Use the code WKLSWFT (works until 5 AM San Francisco time, on June 11).
Early Release of our new Swift 2.0 book for OS X, iOS, and watch OS! Grab a Preorder at Amazon or buy the Early Release (with updates) at O’Reilly right now (50% off with code WKIOS9 for this week).
Fresh from early release, and available now from O’Reilly Media and Amazon (and probably lots of other places too!)
/dev/world/2015 is here! Once again, I’m one of the organisers. The call for presenters is open until 30 June 2015.
Over on the Secret Lab blog we’ve posted an addendum for Swift Development with Cocoa, bringing it up to date for Xcode 6.3 and Swift 1.2.
Check it out here!
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.
Thanks to our editor, Rachel Roumeliotis, for continuing to put up with us, as well as everyone else at O’Reilly who helped with the book. And thank you to our fabulous tech reviewers!
You can buy the book at O’Reilly, or Amazon, or at your favourite technical book-selling-place. It can also be read online via Safari.
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!
