Mobile Development Digest #62

Hello. That was a good week and Apple was the main newsmaker. At the first place, they announced next WWDC’17 in San Jose. Tickets will be distributed by lottery in the end of March. Everyone who will not be able to participate can enjoy conference online at developers site.

Apple revealed trailer for upcoming series “Planet of the Apps“. I wonder if this will be reflected in Silicon Valley :) In the meantime, you can watch¬†interview with¬†Eddy Cue¬†to get some details about the show.

  • Implicitly Unwrapped Optionals? Damn!¬†New article in series “Swift? Damn!” about the process of Swift study by Objc developers.
  • Swift + Keywords (V3.0.1). Alternative Swift documentation which based on language keywords with usage example. In contradiction to official Apple documentation could be useful for experienced developers who want to have quick start with Swift. Personally, I find it useful for myself also because some features are rearely used and I forgot about very nice stuff like var indirect
  • RW team as usual published very nice article about 3D programming, this time it’s introduction to Metal.
  • Providing a unified Swift error¬†API. Handy technique to handle errors for¬†data processing on the example of remote API.
