📢 Overview
👋 The /dev/world/2019 call for presenters (CFP) is now open!

/dev/world is a Swift, iOS, and macOS developer conference, and /dev/world/2019 is our 12th year.

/dev/world/2019 will run from Monday, 2 September 2019 to Wednesday, 4 September 2019 in Melbourne, Australia.

/dev/world seeks presentations on topics of interest to developers building amazing experiences for iOS, macOS, and other Apple platforms, using a range of technologies, including Swift, UI frameworks, best practices, game development, and beyond.

🧐 This year, we're especially keen on talks about:
▸ new techniques and tools for Swift 5 (and beyond) development
▸ machine learning
▸ networking and reliability for mobile apps
▸ internationalising and localising
▸ accessibility
▸ Swift on the server
▸ Swift on non-Apple platforms

We're looking for talks from developers, designers, tinkerers, hackers, and makers of all skills levels, and at all levels of public speaking experience.

⚠️ ALL ACCEPTED SPEAKERS ⚠️ are eligible to receive (with no further applications necessary) financial presenter support. For details visit: https://auc.edu.au/policies/presenter-support/

Curious about presenting, but not quite sure what to do? The team is friendly! Email us at devworld AT auc.edu.au and we can brainstorm with you!

📚 TOPICS
We’ll ask you to pick from following topics for your session, and we’ll use the topics you pick to place your session in streams, if you’re selected.

▸ iOS development, tvOS, and watchOS
▸ macOS development
▸ Swift for macOS, Linux, Windows, and Swift on the Server
▸ Machine Learning, including CoreML and Swift for TensorFlow.
▸ Third-party Platforms, including Xamarin, React Native, Unity, Unreal Engine, and similar.
▸ Emerging Technologies or brand-new or near-new components of our ecosystem.
▸ Design and UX
▸ 'Journeys' or Marketing
▸ Tools, including Xcode, Interface Builder, Fastlane, TestFlight, VSCode, and beyond.

🔎 REVIEW CRITERIA
The selection committee will review talks using the following criteria:

▸ Relevance: How relevant is the topic to the /dev/world audience?
▸ Substance: Does the proposal provide enough substance for a developer audience?
▸ Community Value: Is this a topic that will enrich attendees or build their skills?
▸ Freshness: Is this coverage of content that isn’t readily available on the internet?

🗣 SESSION TYPES
We’re looking for presenters to submit sessions for the following four session types:

1️⃣ Standard Session
30 minute session (25 minute talk + 5 minutes questions): our standard length session.
Give attendees a taste of a new topic, or a quick new skill they can adopt in their development lives.

2️⃣ Long Session
45 minute session (40 minute talk + 5 minutes questions): a longer slot! Cover a topic in some detail, and leave attendees with a new perspective, new skills, or a new understanding of something. We'll be accepting less of these than we will of our "Standard Session"

3️⃣ Half-day Training
3 hours: a hands-on session, in a classroom style setting, where attendees will work through more complex activities and learn something through doing.

4️⃣ Full-day Training
6 hours + breaks: a hands-on session, in a classroom style setting, where attendees will work through more complex activities and learn something through doing.

If you have some other format (interpretive dance, 5-minute short talk, live performance... anything) that you'd like us to consider, please select the "Other" session type, and describe your intentions somewhere else in your submission.

ℹ️ OTHER INFORMATION
/dev/world is an inclusive event, and you don’t need to be an expert to deliver an amazing talk. You don’t need to be a “Senior Engineer”, you don’t need to have written a book.

We want presentations for people at all levels of their technical career, covering a wide range of experiences and perspectives.

⚠️ LATE BREAKING CFP
We'll be running a SECOND CFP in July, covering topics that are LATE BREAKING.

Submissions during the LATE BREAKING CFP will only be accepted for shorter 15-25 minute (precise length TBD) sessions, on newer technologies, or developments arising after Apple's WWDC conference June.

We will be prioritising submissions to the LATE BREAKING CFP based on their relevance and 'newness'.

Please get your regular submissions into this CFP, as normal, and don't use the LATE BREAKING CFP as an excuse to procrastinate!

This is your opportunity to tell us about those new things you got to tinkering with straight after WWDC, what you learned and made with things other may not know about or have had a chance to look at yet. In this offering we will be prioritising freshness of technology, and allowing for shorter talks of a more exploratory nature.

/dev/world/2019 will run from Monday, 2 September 2019 to Wednesday, 4 September 2019 in Melbourne, Australia.

A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
