Apple will provide one-on-one guidance to developers in a series of online events dubbed Tech Talks 2021. There will be presentations from Apple experts, each followed by a Q&A session. Plus experts will open their virtual doors in “office hours” meetings.

The free series will include more than 100 live sessions and 1,500 office hours. All coming from Apple locations around the world in multiple time zones.

The series echos a popular feature of the WWDC Developers Conference in that it allows devs to get help directly from Apple. And for the Mac-maker to get feedback.

“Every single day, developers around the world are creating incredible apps and games for our platforms, and it’s our goal to provide them with every resource we can to help make the hard work they put in that much easier and more impactful,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s VP of Worldwide Developer Relations.

Tech Talks 2021 will offer in-depth technical details on integrating SwiftUI, App Clips, HealthKit, machine learning, augmented reality, accessibility features, and more into the applications. Other topics will include adopting 5G, publishing in-app events on the App Store, getting the most out of the App Review process, and getting started with enterprise development.

These will be conducted from Bengaluru, Cupertino, London, Mexico City, São Paulo, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Tel Aviv and Tokyo.

Office hours will give developers one-on-one, 30-minute conversations about their apps with Apple experts. These will come from App Review, Evangelism, App Store Connect, and Developer Technical Support.

Tech Talks 2021 sessions are free of charge, and open to current members of the Apple Developer Program and the Apple Developer Enterprise Program. Registration opens Wednesday, with new sessions and office hour appointments posted every two weeks.
