Saturday's Programme

Spend your Saturday afternoon with us: learn, code and get a laugh!

Chats and Networking

You want to keep chatting with your fellow attendees about a subject you particularly like? Your favorite topic is not covered by our classroom sessions? We’ve got you covered: during the whole Saturday afternoon we have a room for you to use for discussions and networking.

Complimentary Food and Drinks

We believe you could get the best out of our Saturday’s session while crunching and sipping something. So, throughout the whole afternoon you’ll be able to benefit from a selection of local foods. Yes, we’ll also have beer and water. And, it’s on us. You’re welcome.

Classrooms

FrenchKit introduces a new format: the Classrooms Pick your favorite between a selection of topics and join a small group of 15-20 fellow attendees. An expert will give a short lecture on that topic, will share his/her experience with your group, and, of course, he will be open to answer your specific questions. Classrooms are a great opportunity to discover or dig deeper into a subject you've never taken the time to study and have direct feedback from an expert. So far, we have picked for you the following subjects:

  • RxSwift, with Florent Pillet
  • Bluetooth LE - Hands on, with Hugues Bernet-Rollande
  • DTrace: beyond Instruments, with Frank Lefebvre
  • Accessibility Principles & Best Practices by Amath Amadou Ndiaye of the NGO "J'accède"
  • Core Data - it's not dead yet, by Abizer Nasir
More subjects will be disclosed in the following weeks.

90mins

Animations: Keynote Karaoke & Pub Quiz

Expect to have some great time at FrenchKit, with a Saturday evening dedicated to a number of fun activities:

Keynote Karaoke
Want to know how it feels like to be on stage while you're totally unprepared? Now you can! Join us on stage and talk about a totally random deck of slides. Your bravery will be rewarded by the loudest laughters by the audience.

Pub Quiz
Grabbing inspiration from the outstanding NSHipster Pub Quiz, we'll be proposing our own edition of the game. Gather in groups and reply to our (un)fair trivia about Cocoa development and Apple in general. Sip a drink in the process. There's not much to win, but what's better than glory?

90mins
