Swift Design Patterns
Paul Hudson @twostraws

In this workshop you'll get hands-on examples of the most important patterns available to Swift developers, so you can try using them, re-using them, and refactoring them into your own work.

Build your first Android app!
Sergejs Luhmirins

Have you ever wondered how to write an Android app? Is it as easy as some people say? Let’s find out together at this workshop organized by Women Techmakers Latvia! In this event we will learn about basic parts that make up any Android app, learn some Kotlin - official and awesome programming language for Android development, create a simple note taking app to have hands-on experience. Programming experience is not required, but it will be an advantage.

What to expect

Last year we had more than 200 participants. It was a big day full of different activities, contests and communications.

11 speakers from the different parts of the world shared their knowledge in the Android, iOS, Security and Design areas.

Massive afterparty in bowling where everyone had fun time enjoying the game and conversations.

Everyone got new knowledge and had fun! This year we expect even more of everything...
