A new kind of experience ]

NSSpain 2021: Remote Edition is an online, 36 hours conference. Yes, you read that right, we'll start on Thursday and finish on Friday, running 36 hours continuously. We did it as a expriment in 2020 and it worked incredibly well, so we are making it again in 2021!

How does it work? There will be three MCs, one in the timezones covering Europe and Africa, another one in the timezones covering Asia and Oceania, and a third one live in North, Central and South Americas! If you’re currently based in a station on Antarctica these MCs should cover your needs too. Take a look at the schedule to get an idea of how we'll make it work.

All the talks will be recorded and will be available for the attendees right after the conference. Our flexible schedule means you can drop in and out whenever you please, so you can fit the event around your schedule.

Sounds like fun? Join us for another event you won't forget! 😊

Paweł Łopusiński
Obscure Swift

I'm currently working @ Glovo as an iOS Software Engineer. I've been doing iOS stuff for around 8 years and can't get enough of it - there is always something interesting to look into and dive deep into different topics. Recently I've found great interest in exploring SIL, especially for less obvious cases. This is my first time speaking on a conference and I think it will be a great way to start giving back to this awesome community from which I learned so much on my journey ❤️ If I'm not currently coding I'm most likely goofing around with my kids, playing video and board games, or just being a couch potato devouring next TV series from a (too long) list.

I've worn many hats during my professional life: designer, full-stack developer, teacher. For the last five years: iOS Developer.

I enjoy coffee, dad jokes, basketball, punk rock, code reviews (yeah) and have a soft spot for accessibility.

Manuel "StuFF mc" Carrasco Molina
Why every developer should care about the environment

Based in Düren, Germany, near Cologne, Manuel Carrasco Molina, better known as StuFF mc, started programming with his C64 at age 11 in 1987. He entered professional software development in 1997 and has been developing since. He founded the first French podcast about Apple in 2005 and dove into iOS development at the launch of the SDK in 2008, after spending the first half of his developer career in the Microsoft technologies. He ran from 2012 to 2017 which he then handed over to move to further challenges. When he's not developing for the Apple Platforms Stuff is an involved activist and/or local politician (at the city and regional council) in the matters of environment (Hambach & Dannenrod Forest, Ende Gelände, Parents for Future...) and refugees — he spent a few times in east european countries helping his brothers and sisters. In fact, he now thinks of himself way more as a politician than a coder, having not worked 5 days a week as a developer since 2015. Stuff's mother tongue is French, but he also speaks fluently German, English and Spanish, while speaking a bit of Dutch, Arabic and Italian.

Pedro Rojas
Making cleaner and safer asynchronous code with Swift Concurrency

One of the most important features that Swift 5.5 introduced was Concurrency. In this workshop, we will explore how to solve concurrency issues like data races through actors, how to structure our asynchronous code transforming closures into async/await calls, and how building parallel code is now very simple using async let.
