We have already written that the Apple’s annual WWDC will take place from June 6 to 10. It will be the company’s 33 event, and we expect to see new software updates in there. Also, the conference will host the Swift Student Challenge – a competition for developers to improve their programming skills. The submission of projects for the competition is currently underway.
The good news is that MacPaw engineers are ready to review projects from Ukrainian students and provide feedback to participants. To receive feedback, you need to send your project to mentors’ email [email protected] by April 20 (inclusive). Every year MacPaw conducts internships in various fields, including macOS / iOS development. The company plans to conduct the next internship after the war and is currently looking for a convenient format for it. The MacPaw team wants to support talents from Ukraine who will take part in this year’s Swift Student Challenge by providing feedback from experienced MacPaw engineers.
