Hacking with Swift Live 2023

The full schedule is here – it’s almost time to get coding!

Paul Hudson       @twostraws

Now that WWDC23 is over I’m really excited to announce the full schedule for Hacking with Swift Live 2023. The short version is that we’ll be covering the key new features in Swift, then exploring all the major changes for SwiftUI, and finally going hard on SwiftData – it’s going to be a really packed event!

As a reminder, Hacking with Swift Live is a charity-focused event where all ticket and sponsor revenue goes to help folks experiencing homelessness. So, you get to learn Swift, make new friends, and also help people in need!

Schedule

Hacking with Swift Live takes place June 26th-27th, from 9am to 4pm US Eastern time. I’ll walk you through new features, then give you chance to ask questions, and try challenges yourself – everyone will have lots of time to experiment with the code and really get to grips with it!

On day one we’ll be exploring the key changes to Swift this year, focusing specifically on the things that are likely to help make code easier to write or maintain. We’ll then dive straight into the many and varied SwiftUI improvements this year, building a real project that ties them all together as you learn.

On day two we change tack and move over exclusively to SwiftData. This is a huge new framework that unlocks almost all of Core Data’s power with almost none of Core Data’s complexity – it will completely change the way we write apps. We’ll be looking at this topic from a number of perspectives, including:

  • The basics of getting started
  • Advanced uses, including data migrations and shared storage
  • Upgrading existing Core Data apps
  • Architectural issues, including using MVVM

If we still have time left over we’ll also explore a little of what visionOS development looks like, including some of the changes you should be making to help get your app ready for spatial computing. This is entirely dependent on time, and also keep in mind that the SDK is very new so it will just a be a brief look.

As this is a charity event, 100% of ticket and sponsorship income goes directly to charity. Our ticket prices are:

  • Individual ticket: $200
  • Diversity sponsor: $400 (a ticket for you, and we give away one)
  • Super Diversity sponsor: $500 (a ticket for you, and we give away two!)

You get your ticket by making a donation here. Again, if you would like to attend the event, please make sure you donate at least $200.

I believe in using my skills, experience, and knowledge to help make the world a better place, and Hacking with Swift Live means I get to share all the latest tips and techniques for Swift, SwiftUI, and more, but also get to help folks who are genuinely in need of support during difficult times.

I’m really grateful to Emerge for sponsoring the event! Their suite of tools can analyze your app’s size, performance, launch time, and more, all to make sure you ship the very best app you can.
