Apple has been announced to host its annual Worldwide Developer Conference WWDC 2020 virtually this year. The organization has launched the Swift Student Competition, a chance to highlight their passion for technology by building their own Swift sandbox for student developers.

We look forward to sharing more information about WWDC20 with all of you as we enter this thrilling case.”
