- All four developers won this year's Swift Student Challenge.
- 350 developers across 60 countries have won this year's challenge.
As part of WWDC, Apple is highlighting the stories of its Swift Student Challenge winners. Today, the company has published a blog post (opens in new tab) on its Developer site to showcase for student developers.
The first developer the company is highlighting is Henrique Conte, a developer from Brazil that built a game right into the Mac's Touch Bar.
The second developer that Apple has highlighted is Louise Pieri, a 21-year-old who built a game called 'Meep'. The game pits players as a "blue transgender monster" who must navigate parallel universes.
The next developer highlighted is Devin Green, and 18-year-old who built an artificial intelligence chatbot to help those stuck in isolation during the pandemic.
The last developer highlighted is Renata Pôrto, a 21-year-old from Brazil who, after two unsuccessful Swift playground submissions in previous years, won the challenge this year with her visual art app.
You can learn more about each developer and the apps they built on the Developer website (opens in new tab).
