RWDevCon 2017: Tickets Now Available!

Today, the team and I are happy to announce that RWDevCon 2017 tickets are now available!

Keep reading to find out what makes RWDevCon special, and what’s in store this year!

What Makes RWDevCon Special

RWDevCon is designed around 4 main principles:

1) Hands-On Tutorials

RWDevCon is unique in that it is focused on high quality hands-on tutorials. It has 3 simultaneous tracks of tutorials, leading to some challenging and fun choices on which to attend! :]

In each tutorial, you will follow along with a hands-on demo with the instructor:


After the demo, you’ll break out into a hands-on lab, where you’ll be challenged to try things out on your own – and the instructor will be right with you if you have any questions.


We really think this hands-on experience is the best way to learn, and this way you won’t just leave with notes and references – you’ll leave with actual new skills.

“The hands-on tutorials were worth their weight in gold. Some of the concepts I spend hours reading about were cleared up in 30 minutes.” –RWDevCon attendee

2) Team Coordination


Just like we do for books and tutorials on this site, RWDevCon is highly coordinated as a team. This lets us:

  • Cover the material you want. We send a survey to all attendees with potential tutorial topics, and let everyone vote on what they want. We then cover the top voted topics.
  • Practice and polish. Each speaker is assigned a tech editor, and practices once with their tech editor, and once with me. The result is a well polished talks that give you a great experience.
  • Coordinate materials. We develop our tutorial materials in a standard format, and the result is high quality content that remains useful even after the conference – we even make a 600+ page conference book!
“The demos and labs have been SO polished. Basically my ideal iOS conference because I came away learning so much!” –RWDevCon attendee

3) Inspiration

After a long days work on hands-on tutorials, you’ll be ready for a break.

That’s why at the end of the day, we switch to something completely different: inspiration talks.

These are short 18-minute non-technical talks with the goal of giving you a new idea, some battle-won advice, and leaving you excited and energized.

If you’re curious what these look like, check out our RWDevCon videos.

“The inspiration talks surprised me the most. I really enjoyed those. I loved all of the technical sessions but the inspiration talks were unexpected.” –RWDevCon attendee

4) Friendship

We believe one of the best parts about going to a conference is the people, and there’s plenty of opportunities to meet new friends.


We’ll have an opening reception before the conference begins to get to meet each other, board games at lunch, and an awesome party on Friday night. We have some surprises up our sleeves this year too – you won’t want to miss it! :]

“Better food and more fun than WWDC! Lots left to work on after I go home – really met the goal of providing content to cement the knowledge.” –RWDevCon attendee

Where To Go From Here?

If you’re interested in getting a ticket, now’s the best time:

  • To lock in your discount: The first 75 people who buy tickets will a $100 discount off the standard ticket price – but this won’t last long!
