Swift lovers gathered at Tuenti thanks to theEvnt

Publicado el 29/9/2014 por Joaquín Engelmo, software engineer

Last weekend, we hosted the first theEvnt workshop in Madrid. TheEvnt is a foundation created by one of our engineers and based on Extremadura. Its main goals are supporting local region development and providing easy access to resources related to Internet, Mobile, Software, Marketing, Social Media, SEO and so on.

Tuenti and theEvnt are going to collaborate together on achieving those goals. For that reason, we will organize a monthly workshop from now on. The first one was held last weekend at our offices and the topic was "Swift". One of our iOS senior engineers, Victor Pimentel, who has been playing with Swift since it was released, was the speaker.

We had a blast! Around 40 people attended to this 4-hours workshop, a Saturday morning, and we really appreciate that guys, thank you! Learning, networking, chatting and lots of fun. We learnt Swift basics and then we created a sample app using XCode. Before the end, theEvnt also raffled a new book about iOS and Swift that one of the attendees would enjoy. Borja López was the lucky guy!

Thanks you all again for coming and we hope to see you soon in the next theEvnt workshop about Android next month. You can check all the updates in the workshops web, following theEvnt or the Tuenti Engineering accounts on Twitter. Stay tuned! ;)

The 23rd edition of our HMU concludes with two winning projects at Tuenti's offices. Focused on creating new products that provide Tuenti Móvil customers with added value, in this edition the product portion took place with the title Interface Your Telco.

The Tuenti engineers began to prepare their projects yesterday at about 5pm, following a couple of training discussions with two team members regarding WebRTC and APIs, and they will finish them today at the same time. As always, the event included dinner at the office, naps, and a lot of work to be done.

Members of the entire Tuenti team submitted votes to select the winners. The Awesome Dialer project by Andu and Julio, which consisted of improving the phone number dialer and redirecting calls using the Tuenti app, received first place. Daniel and José Antonio earned second place with their Calls in Chat project, which transcribes free calls using the Tuenti app in the chat history as text.
