Last week I attended and gave a talk at FrenchKit in Paris, France. As expected, it was an amazing conference — especially considering it was the first FrenchKit ever. I think the organizers are already thinking about FrenchKit 2017, so keep an eye out and definitely go if you can. I know I will.
I’m not sure if I could articulate this better than Rob Napier, so just read his post, and mentally paste it here. 😄 Always, these indie conferences are about the people — and the people at FrenchKit were awesome. We do not often have the opportunity to meet people from our community face-to-face, so it’s a special occasion when we do.
Aside from the fantastic lineup of speakers, I got to meet Bas Broek (@basthomas) who has been contributing to Swift Weekly Brief, as well as Sébastien Duperron (@liquidseb) who contributed significantly to JSQCoreDataKit (which I wrote about before). There were many other great folks (including a few users of JSQMessages), but definitely too many to list here.
The organizers opened with a mock Apple-esque keynote. It was hilarious and I hope this part was also recorded. The conference closed with 🧀 and 🍷 (of course) and a fun pub quiz. We had a good time with lots of laughs.
Michel explains the specs of the Macintosh Classic I, which had something called a “headphone jack”?
Until we meet again, let’s keep chatting on Twitter and coding together on GitHub.
