Description for Marc-Antoine’s presentation

Sourcery is a code generation framework. It can use annotations or even just classes/protocols/etc to generate exactly what is necessary. Come see how Hopper uses Sourcery to avoid repetitive tasks and how we setup our environment to make it seamless and easy to use!

Description for Séraphin’s presentation

A lot of apps share a common story : you release one and it does well, then the amount of downloads stays flat or declines and you end up killing the project. This talk tells the story of some experiments I did in order to optimize revenue of a free app without affecting the user experience, even with a flat downloads growth.
