WWDC is Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, which used to be hosted every June in California in recent years. In this conference developers who attend will be participating in 5 days of hands-on-labs, presentations, and sessions with Apple Engineers.
WWDC 2020 will take place entirely online for the first time starting June 22 and it is open to more people this time.
For this year’s virtual WWDC, Apple is launching its Swift Student Challenge on Coding and STEM. This is going to encourage and connect with students. This year they are doing online so they won’t get the opportunity to travel to Northern California for the annual event.
To participate in this event, students developers from across the globe need to build an interactive scene that can be experienced in 3 minutes or less. They need to use Swift Playgrounds and submit it through the WWDC 2020 Swift Student Challenge site.
The contest opened on May 5, 2019, and runs through 11:59 PM PT on Sunday, May 17.
There is a huge price for the winner of this challenge i.e a WWDC20 jacket and pin set. The winners will be declared by June 16, which is earlier than the actually virtual event WWDC.
This initiative replaces the annual WWDC Scholars program that Apple awards annually to 350 students based on the challenge of swift playgrounds submission.[Swift playgrounds on MAC are a free tool for students to learn how to code.]
They used to provide free admissions to WWDC, local accommodations for 7 days, airfare, and a year membership in the Apple Developer program which normally costs 99$.
“Even though we don’t have the typical scholarship to attend that we usually do with the in-person conference, we still have a really great way for students to show us all the things they’ve been working on and for us to really get that same sense of connection with our students. And, [we get to] support them and share their stories.”Apple’s Esther Hare, Senior director of developer marketing
To excel and win in the contest, Hare offered the students some guidance.
“What we’ve found is the Swift Playgrounds we love the most and the ones that have done the best are really the ones that align with the same values Apple has,” she said. “So we’ve seen a lot of Swift Playgrounds winners over the past few years that have to do with accessibility, or education, or mental health, or the environment.”Hare
