Introduction to Server Side Swift Using Vapor

July 6, 2024 at 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM CST

Welcome to the Introduction to Server Side Swift Workshop!

This workshop is designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of backend development using the Vapor framework. From setting up Vapor on your machine to integrating it with databases, we'll guide you through each step with practical, hands-on projects.

By the end of this workshop, you'll have gained the essential skills to set up your own server and seamlessly integrate it into your iOS applications.

  • Routing

    Explore the foundational concepts of routing and endpoint organization. This includes understanding how to extract parameters from URLs and query strings, as well as grouping routes for improved management and clarity.

  • MVC Pattern

    Explore the MVC (Model-View-Controller) design pattern to elevate the quality of your backend Vapor code. Discover how to systematically segregate your data logic (Model), presentation layer (View), and application logic (Controller) to enhance maintainability and scalability. Embrace MVC principles to streamline your codebase and foster cleaner, more efficient development practices.

  • Database Integration

    Discover the intricacies of integrating your server with a database, enabling efficient data management and retrieval for your applications. Gain proficiency in connecting your server to various database systems and implementing CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations to effectively interact with your data.

  • Consuming API

    Learn how to seamlessly integrate your SwiftUI application with your custom Vapor server. Explore the implementation of CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations utilizing a generic HTTP client layer. Through this process, you'll gain practical experience in establishing communication between your front-end SwiftUI app and the back-end server, enabling efficient data manipulation and management.

Machine Learning in iOS Using Create ML

August 17, 2024 at 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM CST

Discover how powerful machine learning can be with our all-inclusive workshop! Learn the craft of training models for text, picture, and data classification by delving deeply into CreateML. You will learn how to distinguish between dogs and cats, classify text and images, and analyze tabular data through interactive lessons.

You will have the know-how to incorporate machine learning models into your iOS applications with ease by the end of the workshop. Take advantage of the chance to participate in thought-provoking conversations with our knowledgeable lecturers and other attendees. Don't pass up this incredible opportunity to learn something that will elevate your abilities to new levels!

  • Image Classification

    You will start by learning how to integrate a pre-made model into your application. This model will allow you to detect thousands of common house hold items. After that you will train your own custom model to distinguish between cats and dogs. You will also learn how to integrate your model in your custom application.

  • Sentimental Analysis

    Using the Create ML framework, you will explore the world of sentiment analysis in this section. Examine different approaches to data preparation by utilizing Create ML's built-in tools in addition to Swift Playgrounds. After completing this section, you will be able to train and integrate your own sentiment analysis model with ease. Set off on this adventure with confidence to discover the power of comprehending and interpreting sentiment!

  • Object Detection

    You will learn how to perform object detection in Create ML. This will involve annotating the objects manually from an image using a third party tool.

  • Tabular Data

    Explore the fascinating realm of predicting car prices using tabular data format in Create ML. Learn the essential skill of data cleaning using DataFrame, similar to Pandas in Python, to ensure your dataset is optimized for analysis. Delve into model training on a small subset of data, and seamlessly integrate your findings into an iOS application.
