Designing and Building With Accessibility in Mind.

Accessibility is an often ignored part of iOS development, partly because much of it is “baked in” to the OS and “just works” most of the time. However, building custom UI elements and transitions can lead to a breakdown of accessibility expectations. In this talk, Hung will share with you some common pitfalls and solutions to keep in mind when designing and building accessible experiences. You will also learn about advanced accessibility features such as custom rotors and actions that will make your app easier and faster to use for visually impaired users. Finally, you'll explore Xcode's improved Accessibility Inspector and go over techniques to run an accessibility audit on your own app!

At the end of this session you should have a better understanding of Voiceover, the tool that blind and sight-impaired users rely on every day to use your apps. You'll be able to run a quick accessibility audit on your app to find places in your app that could use improvement. You should be able to come back to work and speak to why it's important to invest in accessibility and have concrete steps on how to make your app easier to use.

Hung Truong

Hung has been hacking on iOS ever since the original iPhone OS 2.1 SDK was released. He is currently a senior iOS developer at Starbucks, making it simpler to order coffee and replacing Objective-C with Swift when he can get away with it. His passions include eating free food and catching Pokemon in exotic locales.

Understanding language on iOS

The evolution of user interfaces in mobile apps continues with the most natural way of expressing the user’s wishes - their voice. Understanding what the users say is not an easy task.

In this talk, you will learn about several speech analysis approaches that help you in this challenging task, from Apple's brand new Core ML and SiriKit, to Google's Dialogflow and Facebook's Wit.ai, along with some well known Natural Language Processing algorithms like the TF-IDF.

Martin Mitrevski

Martin is working as a Tech Lead at Swiss Software Company Netcetera. He’s been working on mobile apps in the areas of virtual reality, transport, indoor navigation, insurance, weather, innovation tools and live event apps. Lately, he's been fascinated by the possibilities that conversational interfaces bring in simplifying the user experience and how they might change the way we think about apps.

Very excited to have Jorge Ortiz Fuentes' Workshop at iOSCon 2018!

Jorge Ortiz Fuentes

Jorge is a freelance dedicated to mobile development, security, and systems architecture. As a developer he started to work for the M.I.T. in 1993 and since he has collaborated in many software projects. Most of them were internally for HP where he worked for more than 15 years. During the last 6 years he has been working in different aspects of mobile development. After playing with PalmOS, he learned Android programming for the first Google App contest and immediately started to play with the first iPhone SDK. He often participates as instructor in the best iOS and Android Bootcamps in U.S.A. and Europe. He has recently founded Canonical Examples to help other developers to take a step forward and become senior developers in a very demanding market.

The art of developing more in less time - how to not get caught by long build times?

While developing an iOS application at some point you may notice, that it does not go as smooth as it used to. At the beginning everything was much smaller, it was easier to reason about, it did not take that long to build and it was much faster to switch between application and test targets. The question is - can anything be done about it? Can you still develop continuously growing applications and do not fell the overwhelmed by them? The answer is - "yes you can”. Eliasz will share with you how you can make it happen by isolating and modularising components in your code. If you do it well, then you will always feel as you work on something small.

This talk is built from two parts - first part is about how you can use existing Xcode project options and structure to make your builds faster. The second part is focused on how you can modularise our codebase by splitting your code to logic and passive views. By doing that, you can achieve situation in which your modules will be smaller (they will compile faster) and you will be able to test your logic code in a quicker way (you will be able to test them as macOS frameworks, because they will no longer be dependent on UIKit).

Eliasz's goal is to not only share with you how to decrease build times, but also show that the development experience that you have while writing code is even more important than having low build times in general. In this case - ability to get faster feedback loop by testing code as macOS frameworks gave Eliasz high productivity boost that was more important than having low build times in general.

Eliasz Sawicki

Eliasz is a developer at Bright Inventions, focused on providing great iOS experience.

A different take on Data Model

Data is the fuel which powers every App. However you do not give it enough thought. You slap it into CoreData, or define some class structures which mostly stand in the way, when you need to implement new features.

In this talk Maxim will describe a data centered approach for representing data model, which enables easy testability, reactive behavior and does not stand in the way.

Maxim Zaks

Maxim tells computers how to waste electricity. Hopefully in efficient, or at least useful way. Worked for Big companies and small Startups.

How T Instrument Your Code Like You Mean It

Everyone knows Instruments can help you find and fix performance problems, but most people either don't know enough about Instruments to try it out, or know just enough to feel scared to open it. In this performance primer you'll learn the three most important things you can do to make your apps run faster, and by the end of it have at least a grudging respect for the power and insight that Instruments delivers.

Paul Hudson

Paul is the author of Hacking with Swift, Pro Swift, Hacking with macOS, Server-Side Swift, Swift Coding Challenges, Practical iOS 10, and Objective-C for Swift Developers. Suffice it to say, he quite likes Swift. And coffee. (But mostly Swift.) (And coffee.)
