Apple Highlights Stories of two of over 5000 developers attending WWDC 2019



Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference will start next week at the San Jose Convention Center, and in front of festivals, Apple has participated in a press release highlighting two of the over 5,000 people to attend this year.

The first is Erika Hairston, a 23-year-old Yale grad who works in San Francisco, who recently launched its first app, Zimela, to promote technology diversity. The other is David Niemeijer, a 50-year-old from Amsterdam who founded AssistiveWare, a company that designs disability communication aids.

Hairston developed Zimela to help under-represented groups into technology by establishing mentoring and alerting users to career placement opportunities, such as internships, according to Apple. She also recently completed Apple Entrepreneur Camp for app-driven businesses owned or run by women.

Niemeijer developed a virtual keyboard that could be controlled using a mouse option that eventually became the KeyStrokes program. In 2001

, a KeyStrokes user sent Apple's late founder Steve Jobs to ask if KeyStrokes could be integrated into MacOS and turn off an almost two-year relationship with Apple.
