What's it like at Swift Summit?

Swift Summit is all about community.

Swift developers from around the world are coming together in San Francisco for 2 days. A large portion each day is spent listening to talks from developers who have interesting ideas to present, or who have done something notable with the language. The event is designed with the social aspect as a ‘first-class citizen', so there's ample opportunities to meet the people around you and have fun. Attendees come as a collection of professionals sharing an interest in Swift, and leave as part of a community.

Learning and education is hugely important to Swift Summit. Aside from the social aspects, the mission is for every attendee, regardless of their skill level, to leave as better Swift developers with new knowledge, tools and ideas that provide immediate value.

If you would like to join us this year- please get a ticket as soon as possible; we do expect to sell out. Please also read our Code of Conduct: We take it seriously.
