Women in iOS meetup

Creative SDK iOS Product Manager Maria Perez recently gave a talk at the Women in iOS meetup here in NYC.

We are now proud to announce that we will be hosting their next event at the Adobe NYC offices near Union Square.

From the organizers:

Women in iOS, part of the popular iOSoho meetup, has a goal to bring more women and other underrepresented groups into the larger iOS community.

The Women in iOS meetup is about creating a safe and comfortable environment for women and other underrepresented groups in the iOS development industry. We understand that, for some, it might be intimidating to attend a meetup where they could be the only “other” person in the room.

Details

Date: Wednesday, March 22, 2017
Time: 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Place: Adobe NYC, Union Square

Speakers

Improving App Navigation for Vision-Impaired Users
Claire Lynch, iOS Developer at Prolific Interactive
A new accessibility feature called custom rotors allows us to mirror visual hierarchies with voice control, making it easier for vision-impaired users to navigate mobile applications with efficiency and accuracy. This talk will cover code examples as well as a more general introduction to the vision-impaired user community and Apple’s accessibility solutions for this user group.

Claire is an iOS Engineer at Prolific Interactive and graduated from the Flatiron School last August. She was on a fast track to attend medical school at the UW-Madison but pivoted towards programming because it captures her love for both creativity and math. In her free time, she loves cycling around Brooklyn, seeing live music and throwing dinner parties! Prolific.

iOS & In-development Hardware
Julie Yaunches, Lead Software Engineer at Grow Labs
Diving into apps that act as gateways to custom hardware devices. How you both develop for consumer-facing use, yet support in-development hardware/firmware. Balancing the act of being debugger, user interface, and ensuring end-to-end integration.

Julie has been writing iOS apps for 5 years and has specialized in hardware enabled ones for going on 3 years. Before iOS, she worked in web/API development primarily with Ruby on Rails. She now leads software engineering for the gardening hardware startup, Grow.


See you at Women in iOS next week!
