Swift Camp

From Swift -> Kotlin -> iOS -> Android -> Mobile Apps

Sat. Nov. 18 from 02:00 pm to 06:00 pm

Swift Camp is a community-run conference focused on open source swift and mobile technologies.


If you or an organization you know may be interested in sponsoring Swift Camp please see out prospectus Prospectus and reach out to us by email.


Swift Camp features a rich mix of presenters from across the open source community.


Please See Schedule Below


Swift Camp includes an interesting mix of presentation on best practices, emerging techniques, recent research and case studies regarding open source technologies.

Smart Development

The concept for Smart Development helps you to iterate much faster than traditional methods. When you have an idea, it was always really difficult to translate it into production. This is where a rapid prototyping method comes in. When developing mobile apps, we need to start thinking about the User Experience because in the end, it’s just people the ones who will use your app or product. Having the ability to grab an idea and make a quick preview with a basic interaction is key and from then you can go more complex and really showcase some more complex interactions that completes the user experience. Tools like Principle comes handy for this type of tasks. It allows you to create something from scratch, combined with Sketch for example we are able to come up with a navigation concept in just minutes or hours not days or weeks. The developers (if you actually need one), would be much more pleased by seeing and feeling how something has to perform rather than static sketches or wireframes that doesn’t really show what your idea is all about. Navigation concepts like this one for Nike (showcase it) uses the Card Navigation seen in famous apps like Tinder. This example of navigation makes you “wish” you want to buy the shoe. And the way the objects slides in and out makes this navigation feel intuitive, easy to use. Remember, that’s exactly what you want to do if you create a Mobile App. Make something beautiful and easy to use. Then the rest is history.

Swift is like Kotlin! Is it?

In this workshop i'll be walking you through creating a framework in Swift and translating the same framework into Kotlin. We will look into differences between these languages and the importance of both languages. This is a 2 part session which will start in Swift Camp and finalize in Android Camp.

Making a Full Stack App in Server Side Swift with Kitura

As Swift continues to evolve towards a stable ABI, the language continues to take advantage of more and more Foundation APIs on Linux. This work enables Server Side Swift frameworks like Kitura to become a first-class choice for your server architecture. Join David Okun as he walks you through building a mobile app that uses a backend written in Swift and is ready to deploy right away.


The venue for Swift Camp 2017 is Convene's midtown NYC campus (730 3rd Ave), where it will be hosted along with other Open Camps events. We'll be posting further venue details here as the event approaches, including access and check-in procedures.


Swift Camp is organized by a volunteer team from the open source community. If you'd like to get involved, please reach out to us by email .
