Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Stasy Meclazcke. Stasy is a 17 year old iOS app developer and designer. He started programming when was 12 years old. When he was 16, he started to learn iOS programming and build iOS apps. Since then he has published more than five apps on the App Store. He recently won the student scholarship from Apple and got an opportunity to attend the WWDC 2015. We are happy to have him to share his experience at WWDC and on how he got the scholarship. If you plan to apply for the scholarship next year, I hope you will find the post useful. And my advice is: Start to learn Swift and build apps!

This year, Apple asked students to make an app about themselves describing and showing their technical skills and what they did before and what they plan to do. Apple required that the app be mainly or solely written in Swift. I was able to transfer my knowledge of Objective-C into Swift pretty easily and made the app with ease.
