I didn’t have the opportunity to attend the Apple Event at Apple Park in California physically, but even though I was a bit disappointed about not being there in person, it turned out to be the most unforgettable event of my life. I had previously received the first prize from TÜBİTAK, the most prestigious project competition in Turkey, but to be honest, I hadn’t been this excited before. Those 5 days were incredibly productive for me. I attended various workshops and made friends from all around the world who were incredibly knowledgeable. Since I was the youngest among the participants I met, everyone I met was very helpful to me.

Due to the time difference, the sessions coincided with late hours in Turkish time. I had taken permission from my school, thinking I would sleep during the day and attend the sessions at night. However, it didn’t turn out that way at all because I was so excited that I didn’t even feel sleepy during the daytime.

To be honest, I was a bit nervous at the beginning of the one-on-one lab sessions, but they treated me so well and put me at ease, making it a very enjoyable experience. The one-on-one lab sessions I participated in were as follows:

  • App Store Business & marketing lab
  • Machine learning & Computer vision lab
  • Accessibility design lab
  • RoomPlan lab

I asked for their suggestions on areas where I need to improve my app, and they provided valuable insights. One of the Apple experts also emphasized the importance of being aware of the areas where I need to grow and testing with potential users. I received recommendations for my future app ideas as well. I can’t wait to apply for future WWDC events. I hope that next time, I can participate at Apple Park and create new memories.
