NSScotland 2014: Tutorial Day.

In addition to the main conference on Saturday/Sunday we are delighted to offer a Swift tutorial on Monday 27th October.

The tutorial will be held at Codebase in Lady Lawson Street. It's near the castle, around a 30 minute walk from the conference venue, so your accommodation for the conference will still be fine for the tutorial.

If you have any questions or concerns, get in touch.

A Swift Kickstart
with Daniel Steinberg

The Swift Kickstart is a one-day introduction to the Swift programming language for experienced programmers. It acts as a companion to the Swift Kickstart book.

Dim Sum Thinking

Daniel Steinberg has spent the last three decades programming the iPad and iPhone. OK, he hasn't. But he's been programming the iPhone and the iPad since the SDK's first appeared in beta and Mac OS X for many years before. Daniel is the author of the book iPad and iPhone App Development, the official companion book to the popular iTunes U series from Stanford University.

Daniel presents iPhone and Cocoa training for the Pragmatic Studio and consults through his company Dim Sum Thinking. When he's not coding or talking about coding for the Mac, the iPhone, and the iPad he's probably cooking or hanging out with his wife and daughter.
