We are happy to announce that all ticket sales from iOSDevCampDC 2019 will directly benefit Women Who Code DC. iOSDevCampDC has been a community-run conference from the beginning and we have been breaking even every year. This year, we are glad to announce that all the costs for t-shirts, badges, signs, food and drinks will be paid for by Capital One. This is on top of their sponsorship of the Capital One event space in McLean.
We looked around at how we could best use the money we normally get from ticket sales. We have been wanting to encourage more women to join the technology field, particularly in mobile app development.
So we are going to donate all the proceeds from ticket sales to one of the awesome new members of our local tech community, Women Who Code DC! Just like iOSDevCampDC is the local satellite of the umbrella organization iOSDevCamp, Women Who Code DC is the local affiliate of Women Who Code. Women Who Code state on their website: “Your gift also positively fuels our growth, development, and goal of connecting five million women in technology by the year 2019.” We hope our donation will help get Women Who Code closer to that goal even faster, especially in the DC area.
Women Who code (WWCode) is a global non-profit 501(c)3 organization which inspires women to excel in technology careers. We believe that innovation is driven by diversity and that the tech industry will be even better once women are no longer underrepresented.
Women Who Code was founded in 2011 and has since grown to 10,000 members spanning 12 countries. To date, WWCode has produced more than 450 events worldwide, boasts a growth rate of nearly 1,000 members per month, and launches in a new city every week.
Our key initiatives include: technical study groups, hack nights, career development workshops, and panel discussions featuring influential technology experts and investors.www.womenwhocode.com
Our chapter is focused on providing women with tangible programming skills to expand their career opportunities.
We are made up of a lot of study groups that learn anything in the "full stack" of development (aka from the very back end of coding involving networks and security, to the front end involving scripting and styling). Whether you love Python or are trying to learn anything you can - we are a group that allows you to pick and choose whatever fits your learning style!www.womenwhocodedc.com

Kevin is an iOS platform expert specializing in Networking, Multimedia, and all things Objective-C/Swift. He spent the past few years deep in the nuts and bolts of a/v streaming and group video chat. Now working on Capital One’s suite of apps at their San Francisco office, he is advancing security and performance for millions of users. In less than a year he’s managed to get a finger in many other pies as well - core library evolution, Swift migration, continuous integration, UI pattern consolidation, dependency distribution, test automation, and the occasional peach cobbler.
Perhaps most of all, Kevin is a tinkerer. Be it an open source library, project car, or guitar amp, he’s had it in a thousand pieces on the floor and rebuilt better, faster, stronger. He has a San Francisco mailing address now and a Baltimore attitude forever.

After working in the Web + Mobile Interaction Design & Development industry for 15 years then hitting a deep, dark “burnout”, Jaimee realized she had accumulated a lot of tools for building great products, and decided to run an experiment on herself.
Join along her wild journey as she shares how being a tool builder by trade equipped her with the tools and skills she needed to rebuild her life and go on to co-found a company doing the most fulfilling work of her life, so far.
What changes in the way you design you app with SwiftUI? Everything and nothing. In this fast-paced talk we look at how to get the most out of Apple’s new Siwft-friendly declarative UI framework, the Swift behind SwiftUI, and the impact it has on how you envision and architect your app.
Mobile Engineers and Data Scientists necessarily have different approaches to Machine Learning, sometimes putting them at odds; however, successfully applying ML requires both groups. The next wave of iOS applications will run on machine learning, so both developers and data scientists will need to be well versed in what it means to deploy models to the edge, and will need to work together to achieve success. In this talk, we introduce the concept of machine learning deployment, discuss special considerations for ML on edge devices, and describe how to effectively address these challenges to leverage this new technology at the edge.
In this session, participants will learn about a National Science Foundation-sponsored project to develop a smartphone app to visualize magnetic fields with AR. The developers will discuss the opportunities and challenges of working with ARKit and provide visual examples from their recently-developed project, Physics Toolbox AR. They will share their experience of using ARKit in an educational research setting to help learners make sense of fields and 3-D space. Participants will be welcomed to explore the app during an interactive portion of the session. Learn more about this project at https://www.vieyrasoftware.net/physics-toolbox-ar
Understanding static vs dynamic linking with visual aides, technical explanations, and practical applications to dramatically improve app startup time, performance, size, and code structure. Short history/timeline including the rise of dynamic frameworks and recent Swift developments.
The iPhone's Secure Enclave is well known to hold the data for Face ID and Touch ID. However, it can also generate 256-bit elliptic curve private keys that you can use for your own security purposes. These keys cannot even be accessed by the user, as phone's secure enclave does all of the encrypting and decrypting for you. How to use these capabilities for practical uses will be demonstrated.
The diamond inheritance problem (needing a class to inherit from more than one super class) has never been more of a problem for me than when trying to create UI styles I can use app-wide. Part of the reason for this is that many different elements use the same sort of styles, but inheritance isn’t flexible enough to handle all that mixing and matching.
Functions, though, are. In this talk, I’ll discuss how using a small bit of functional programming can reap massive benefits in your UI styling code, especially (but not solely) with the powers provided by the new SwiftUI framework!
