After a brief post-Summit hiatus, we're glad to be back, with a wonderful talk from Natasha Murashev, aka @NatashaTheRobot (, and a long awaited talk by the equally wonderful Green Knight!

Please note: we are not at Skills Matter this time, come to Makers Academy. We'll email shortly with a "how to find us" guide, and possibly employ a rabbit with a pocket watch to lead the way.

Title: Adventures with Enums

A talk that we've almost had once before, but bad luck intervened. After many months of adventures, and misadventures, we're very glad to confirm that Green Knight will be talking about everything enums.

We’ll explore the role of enums in the Swift ecosystem, starting with an examination of what they can (and cannot) do, moving to examples of how to employ them to handle multiple datatypes, maintain type safety, and provide safe defaults. We end with speculations about new, as yet uncharted development patterns.


Doors open at 6:30pm
Talks start around 7pm


As we're not at Skills Matter this month, you don't need to register anywhere but here. Enjoy!

Each month we have up to three speaker slots, in general 20 minutes each, but quite flexible. If you'd like to do a shorter talk, say 5-10 minutes, it's worth getting in touch, we'll do our best to fit you in.

For each event a woman will be given priority. Everyone is encouraged to talk: it's a great way to give back to the community, get to know each other, and focus your thoughts.
