Submissions for the Swift Student Challenge will open until April 18th.
Apple has confirmed that it will be hosting its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 7-11, 2021. The show will retain its all-online format just like last year and will be available for free for all developers. Apple is expected to reveal the next versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and watchOS, and tvOS during WWDC21.
WWDC21 is also the place where developers can learn more about new technologies, tools, and other frameworks that they can utilize in building their own apps and games. In addition, Apple has announced that this year’s Swift Student Challenge is now accepting submissions from young developers as a way to showcase their coding skills through Swift playground.
“We love bringing our developers together each year at WWDC to learn about our latest technologies and to connect them with Apple engineers,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing. “We are working to make WWDC21 our biggest and best yet, and are excited to offer Apple developers new tools to support them as they create apps that change the way we live, work, and play.”
WWDC21 will provide all the tools and information for developers to turn their ideas into reality – a total of more than 28 million developers now make apps and games for Apple devices. Aside from the keynote, WWDC21 will include online sessions, 1:1 labs that offer technical guidance, as well as new ways for developers to interact with Apple engineers and designers.
The Swift Student Challenge continues Apple’s tradition of supporting students who are interested in coding. The challenge invites them to create an interactive scene in a Swift playground that can be experienced within three minutes. The Swift Student Challenge will accept submissions until April 18th, and winners will be receiving a special WWDC21 outerwear and pin set.
