April Showers bring May Lightning Talks


Women Who Code Cincinnati is excited to host a round of Lightning Talks!

Talk #1: Discover UX

Understand the difference between UX and UI, the different roles within UX, and what an average week looks like for a UX Designer.

Talk #2: SwiftLint

SwiftLint is a powerful tool that aids in maintaining code quality and consistency. The tool comes with over 200 rules that can be easily implemented, but it also allows for easy rule customization. In this talk we will cover how to write and implement custom SwiftLint rules.

Talk #3: Adding to Your Codebase

As time marches on, technology does as well. In this talk, Alexx will share things to consider to ensure your team is successful when adopting a new technology to your codebase.
