Our Largest Tribute to Swift

Taking place at the historic Théâtre de Paris, dating back to 1891, with the capacity to accommodate twice the number of attendees and up to three times the increased community space, Swift Connection promises to be an experience like never before.

We intend our new venue to serve as the main stage for actionable and insightful presentations, sharing, and meeting with both old and new friends, making this edition of the Swift Connection conference our most significant celebration of the Swift ecosystem yet.

Call for Papers

The Call for Papers is your opportunity to join us on stage at the Swift Connection conference and share your research and ideas in front of our audience.

The CfP opens May 20 and close on June 16, 2024.

Introducing the Speaker Inclusion Programme

We know, presenting a technical talk to a large audience can be a daunting experience, particularly for speakers who are members of minority groups or come from diverse backgrounds.

To support these speakers, aside to the traditional CfP, we are launching the Swift Connection Speaker Inclusion Programme: selected participants will be granted a speaking slot and access to workshops, personalized materials, as well as a dedicated Slack channel.

Applicants must identify with a minority or diverse group and no prior conference speaking experience. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, with a maximum of two submissions selected by review committees.

Are you interested? Feel free to read all details here or apply here!

iOS developer since 2016. I love architecture, generics, and technical deep dives for the sake of it. Working 4 days a week enthusiast. When I am not working I am having fun with the cutest dog in the world, playing D&D with my friends, or trying to suck less at chess.

I discovered iOS when I first bought an iPhone Edge in 2008. Since then, she is working passionately on Apple platforms, enjoying SwiftUI and CoreData with Drive iOS/macOS team at Proton to make privacy by default her moto. When she is not coding, playing and watching basketball and football are her favorite activities. As a movie addict, she tries to avoid trailers as much as she can.

Julien Datour

Julien Datour

I started as a mobile developer in 2014 and fell in love with the Apple platform. As a developer or auditor, I worked on various missions for Xebia and now am a senior team leader at Qonto . Co-organiser of FrenchKit for five years, I occasionally talk or write about topics I’m curious about (it even included some sort of treason for Swift, with Kotlin multiplatform). When not working, I’m a new father trying to figure out how to debug both code and diapers.
