First thing I want to say is big THANKS to Apple for giving me opportunity to attend Apple Tech Talks again. My first Apple Tech Talks were iOS 7 Tech Talks in Berlin (2013.). If you don’t know what Apple Tech Talks you can checkout the website, but in short it is Apples tour with 1 day events around the world where they bring Apple experts and where developers have the chance to learn about new technologies and tips & tricks.
This were tvOS Tech Talks so we got technical information on building and designing for tvOS, learned some coding techniques, got valuable development instruction from Apple experts. Couple of themes we covered: designing apps for tvOS, implementing focus-driven user interfaces, integrating the Siri Remote and game controllers, TVML for media apps, On-Demand Resources, Top Shelf content.
Best part of Tech Talks is the fact that you have unique opportunity to talk in person with lots of fellow developers and Apple experts. There was a seperate Q&A part of the event where you can come and talk to experts of all sorts. You can bring your apps and show them to Apple folks, ask all sorts of questions, get help for your annoying problems and even get help with some of your code.
Apple Tech Talks are like small WWDC and they are great chance to jump on a train of new technologies and rock the App Stores. It would be great to go to WWDC some day but going to 2 Tech Talks is really great. Once again thanks to Apple for this opportunity.
Btw, male — female speakers ratio was 1:1 🙂
Special thanks for my friends in London for their hospitality during this trip. This was my third trip to London but it is always better to be with friends.
