Juan's talk description

The main product of TouchTunes is the Jukebox, and by extension the mobile app that let users interact with it. Today we want to bring these jukeboxes to life using the latest frameworks introduced by Apple. We will talk about the process of using CoreML to detect them in an room and how you can be able to place objects in front of them using the Vision Framework and ARKit.

Thibault's talk description

In real world: Weaving involves using a loom to interlace two sets of threads at right angles to each other: the warp which runs longitudinally and the weft that crosses it. In this talk we will discover that such an old technique can be very useful when it comes to deal with navigation in an iOS application. The aim is to get rid of limitations due to segues or boilerplate code due to patterns like Coordinator. Weavy is an open source framework, based on a weaving pattern, that promotes reactive programming (RxSwift), declarative navigation, dependency injection, and separation of concerns.
