This year, FrenchKit will turn four! We loved organising the first three editions. We experimented a lot of things; some were great… some less so. In 2019, we will continue making FrenchKit a living conference by taking what you liked the most and by introducing new ideas where we feel there’s room for improvement:
- An awesome new venue.
- More expert-grade, code-centric and actionable talks!
- The comeback of classrooms you loved in 2017.
- More community time and activities.
Of course, we would love to hear about your ideas! We will give you regular updates on our progress on the event and our programme. And don't forget to prepare your talk proposals, our call for papers is coming soon!

Olivier is a Tooling engineer at BabylonHealth. He loves providing tools to improve developers’ daily life and DX – like with his Code Generation tool SwiftGen) – and make the job of others easier via tooling. He likes to share and discuss tech stuff with others, on his blog or in person, and will discuss how the new Property Wrappers feature in Swift 5.1 could help avoid a lot of boilerplate.
Conferences should simply be an opportunity for sharing, learning and meeting new people, in respect of all attendees, speakers and staff.
