CFP Description

This year at FrenchKit we will introduce two kind of community workshops on both Friday and Saturday from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM:

  • Classroom (90 min)

  • Hackergarten (90 min)


We will organize practical training sessions we call Classrooms. Every session covers a particular technical subject. For instance, in 2016 we featured classrooms like Advanced CoreData, Basics of BLE, Using Realm in Your App, Understanding Accessibility, etc. We will split the audience in small groups (between 10 and 30 people). For each group, a teacher starts with some theoretical information and then the students work on practical exercises on their own machine. The teacher becomes a coach and helps the students in their experiments.

As a teacher you will pick a subject and lead a classroom.

Teachers will be able to structure the classroom as preferred. Usually, what most teachers do, is to prepare a 15-30 minutes presentation and an exercise / hands on of some sort, that can be realised by people with their Macs. A good idea is to leave 15 minutes for the end, that can leave time for the students to ask you questions.


If you maintain an Open-Source tool or framework and you’re looking for contributors, you can apply for an hackergarten. An hackergarten is a 90-minute slot in which you’ll be able to present the codebase of your project and start coding with a group of FrenchKit attendees.

Get the opportunity to present your open-source framework/iOS/Mac app and make people contribute.


The main subjects are: UX design, prototyping, tools, app architecture, patterns, coding, language, frameworks, testing, CI, distribution and deployment.


  • The whole conference will be in English.
  • You will have a big screen iMac or a video-projector
  • We generally do a conf call during August or early September to review the talk you prepared and give you initial feedback.
  • Conference attendees will be able to register for their favorite session (first arrived, first served) on each day, from 12PM on. In order to help attendees decide, you will have 1 minute on stage in front of the whole audience to present your classroom.

Notifications of Acceptance

  • All accepted speakers will be notified within 15 days after the closure of the PaperCall.
