Article featured Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) Scholarships programme. To be eligible to apply, students need to submit an app using Apple’s Swift Playground programming tool. This year, there were more than 350 WWDC scholarship recipients including SP’s Diploma in Infocomm Security Management student Dalton Ng. Dalton shared that he learnt Web and Java programming from books back when he was a student at the School of Science and Technology (SST). He then picked up Objective-C, a popular programming language used by software developers before moving to Apple’s Swift programming language. Dalton also founded his own company, Agrate, which creates apps and conducts free coding lessons for needy students. Another WWDC scholarship recipient is James Lim, who is also an SST alumnus and is currently studying game design in NYP. James is working on an app that allows users to scan a dish to find out its ingredients, recipe and the nearest places selling it. (The Straits Times – Life, pD1)
