Apple announces WWDC 2017 scholarship winners - The Idle Coder

Apple announces WWDC 2017 scholarship winners

Apple on Friday began sending out notifications to lucky students and STEM organization members selected to receive a scholarship to this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, offering winners the chance to attend without paying the $1,599 ticket price.




As we can see on above image, Apple's scholarship notifications feature the same Swift code typography used in the company's WWDC 2017 announcement and accompanying promotional material. The coding language will apparently feature prominently at this year's event, which focuses on Apple's four operating systems, iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS.

Like last year's WWDC, Apple made 350 scholarships available to students and STEM organization members from around the world, with up to 125 receiving travel assistance. Applicants had to submit an app that's made with swift playground. The challenge was to develop creative application with just use of swift playground. The purpose was to aware people about swift playground. In addition, students were required to write a essay about their coding process and about application.

The scholarship awards follow Apple's usual WWDC ticket lottery, which wrapped up at the end of April

At WWDC 2017, developers will have access to more than 1,000 Apple engineers, who are on hand to teach coding courses, answer questions and announce new technologies during the five-day conference. The schedule also includes special guest speakers, meetings and events like the Apple Design Awards.

WWDC 2017 starts on June 5  with a keynote event at the  San Jose CA. Sessions and labs will be held at Moscone West, some of which will be made available for streaming through Apple's WWDC website and official WWDC app. The conference ends on June 9.
