Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel commemorated the event on Twitter with a gallery of images. Tim Cook also shared his congratulations to the students, writing:
Young developers like Fahmeen, Afreen and Amelia are building apps to help their local communities. Thanks to
@ChicagosMayor and @1summerchicago for helping us showcase some of the creativity and passion coming out of our Everyone Can Code initiative in Chicago.
Apple has been working with the City of Chicago to expand its Everyone Can Code initiative throughout the city. In December, the two announced that over half a million students would have access to the curriculum, while also partnering with local businesses to offer Swift-based internships and jobs to students who go through the program.
