Just over a week until WWDC! With the Swift roadmap and 3.0 features already out in the open, I'm not expecting too many announcements on that front. However, I'm really looking forward to the changes that we'll see in the iOS/tvOS/watchOS and OS X SDKs.

Now that we can talk freely about beta SDKs thanks to the relaxed NDA, this next few months is always my favourite part of the year. I enjoy linking to articles on Swift, but what really excites me about iOS development is the apps we can build with it and that's more about UIKit and friends. We're about to get a whole new set of toys to play with and I can't wait to see what Apple have been working on... ๐Ÿ‘

Swift 3.0 Preview 1: Now you see it, now you don't

At the start of this week the official Swift site posted a release of Swift 3.0 Preview 1, and just a few days later it was taken down. The reason is very sensible though. This was a snapshot of the current progress towards the preview, rather than being the actual preview itself. Yes, it's a little confusing and so keeping the official site for actual releases, with GitHub being the place to get the in-progress versions seems sensible to me.
