Friday, 7 June 2024 • Stephan Krusche

We are pleased to announce that Felix T.J. Dietrich has earned a spot in the Swift Student Challenge 2024. This competition, part of Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), recognizes innovative projects by student developers worldwide. Felix’s project, an iPad app designed to improve financial health, secured him one of the 350 scholarships.

The Swift Student Challenge allows students to showcase their coding skills by creating a Swift Playgrounds project. Winners this receive a year of free access to the Apple Developer Program and Apple AirPods Max. Distinct winners, top 50, even get to fly to California for attending the WWDC in person.

WWDC 2024 is scheduled for next week and will feature Apple’s latest software updates and new technologies. It’s an important event for tech enthusiasts and developers, especially those interested in the ecosystem.

For those interested in participating in next year’s challenge, it’s a good time to start preparing. Stay updated with Apple’s announcements and explore Swift Playgrounds to improve your skills.
