Event Program: 

Networking Session 1 - DJ Mix 1 - Food & Drink  

A Gentle Introduction to Swift Using Playgrounds [Ronald Mourant @ronm333]  
Apple introduced the Swift programming language about 18 months ago.  Developers are excited and enthusiastic about using Swift’s structs, collections, enumerations, closures, generics, protocols, and optionals to create applications.  Swift playgrounds (part of Apple’s Xcode development environment) provide immediate feedback as to possible errors in your code.  Playgrounds also allow examination of data types and their values.  This presentation will focus on a simple application using fundamental Swift concepts to provide a gentle introduction to Swift.  Our aim is to provide a foundation to programming in Swift using only a small set of the many capabilities that Swift provides. Apple will make the Swift Programming Language open source by the end of 2015.  It is likely that a Swift compiler for Linux will be available in the near future.

Developing video applications for the new Apple TV [RoyNejabi & Doug Castoldi] 
Members of the Brightcove Global Services team join us to give an overview on our learnings from developing on the new Apple TV platform.  (Assuming we have the ability to present), we'll show some examples of some of the apps we've developed, along with what we have coming down the road.

UI Testing with Swift [Giorgio Natili @giorgionatili]  
Xcode 7 introduces user interface testing API that can be used to ensure changes made in the code don’t show up as unwanted changes to the end users. Claims are one thing, but how does the framework work in the real world? During this session, we'll explore the new API learning how to get started with UI testing by recording the app, writing the relevant tests and configure a continuous testing environment for Swift.

iOS Automation for Continuous, Reproducible Delivery [Hemal Shah @hemal]  
How would you like 2 extra hours of your time back every week? All iOS developers face similar workflows as they work to upload an app to the App Store. Many of these processes are currently done manually, but why not automate them? Fabric's set of developer tools, collectively called fastlane, makes building, testing, and releasing your app faster, reproducible and less troublesome, leaving developers more time to focus on feature code and not deployment!

Getting over the Apple App Store hurdles [George Adams@viziapps
You’ve created your iOS app, and you’re ready to set the world on fire with it. But wait, you now need to submit it and get it approved for the Apple App Store. That means getting them to approve it for publishing. OK, no problem, just follow the rules ... But wait, the rules change over time, and sometimes all of them aren’t published. In this session, we’ll explore getting apps into the Apple App Store and more specifically, what are some things that will get you denied.(speech level: intermediate; duration: 20 minutes)
