Why: You can’t miss this year’s event! It is set to be the most vibrant hackathon ever thanks to Apple Watch, Apple TV, and the upcoming releases at WWDC 2016.

How: Reasonable ticket prices to be offset by sponsor contributions.

Our community is not only the most diverse (featuring over 25% female participants) but also the most successful of all hackathons. Fostering great startups (Getaround), amazing open source projects (OAuth), brilliant apps (TestFlight), and unicorn public companies (Square), iOSDevCamp is a year-round support network with thousands of members worldwide. This ninth annual iOSDevCamp is set to be take a giant leap forward into the realm where hardware overlaps with software in domains like Wearables and Civic Engagement.

Out-of-town guests are welcome to join our inclusive event. Though projects will include both solo and team efforts, we encourage attendees to build teams of diverse expertise — business ideas, marketing, design, testing, coding, and back-end development. All attendees should be prepared to participate in the development of a project during the event. Scholarships are available to encourage diversity, and mentors are available.

“It’s one of the most pure and original hackathons. People come from all around and really just hack on something, meet new people . . . cherish the relationships that they create here . . . and go out to create huge companies. The developers we’ve met at iOSDevCamp are among the best in the world. Some of them have gone on to join our team. We’re excited to be supporting the event again this year. . . . iOSDevCamp is the best.”
