Hacking with Swift: Live!

July 13th-16th 2020 – Online

If you like Hacking with Swift, you'll love Hacking with Swift Live! This is an online iOS event covering everything new from WWDC20 plus a variety of core skills and techniques, all packed into four days of learning.

Even better, all profits go to charity!


We're going to cover as many of Apple's new frameworks as we can, diving deep with real-world examples and thorough explanations.


While following along with the workshops, you'll have stacks of hands-on coding challenges to solve that improve your skills and solidify your learning.


Meet old friends and make new ones, online – Hacking with Swift is a friendly, welcoming, and inclusive community where everyone can take part.


All profits will go to charity. Yes, really. Come and build your Swift skills, meet new folks, and help make a difference to those who need it.

About the Event

Last year Hacking with Swift Live was an in-person event, but with the current coronavirus pandemic that isn't possible in 2020. But we're not going to let that stop us!

Our goal is to bring people together from around the world to learn, network, make friends, and share our love of programming. More importantly, we believe in helping build others towards their own success, which is why all profits from the event go to charity.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the agenda?

We'll be covering all the major new APIs announced at WWDC20, and if we have time we'll cram in some extra workshops on general iOS development. There will be lots of time for you to get busy coding yourself, with Paul and others available to answer questions.

Will it be recorded?

Yes! All attendees will get copies of the videos, so they can rewatch them later.

Which workshop days does my ticket get me?

Your single ticket gives you access to all four workshop days, and all four days will be different so we'll cover a huge amount of ground. If you can't attend part or all of a day, that's OK – we'll still be providing you with all the videos so you can watch them later.

Am I too junior?

It's hard to put on a "Goldilocks event" where the talks aren't too hard or too easy, but "just right". However, the goal is to make sure we have something for everyone: we'll do our best to make sure there's a spread of challenges that will suit relative newcomers through to experienced developers, and we'll have mentors on hand to help answer questions.

What if I buy a ticket then need to cancel?

At about four weeks before the event we actually need to pay all the bills to make the conference happen, so if you need to cancel your ticket before June 15th you can get in touch and we'll help. After June 15th we have literally spent your money to make the event happen, so refunds are no longer possible – you should either re-sell your ticket or give it away.

Will Paul's dogs be there?

We can't make any promises, but… 🐺🐺


Hacking with Swift Live is a community-run event run by volunteers – these folks are giving up their time so we can donate everything to good causes. If you have any problems, concerns, or questions before, during, or after the event, they are here to help.
