I didn’t think I’d ever get to see anything I had worked on in a WWDC session presentation. That’s a privilege even if you work inside Apple. It’s pretty much unheard of if you don’t.

And yet, this week, it happened. 🤯

It began when I started receiving messages and DMs from people saying, “Did you just see the mention of a package index on that slide?” during the Platforms State of the Union. I hadn’t even seen it, but a quick screenshot proved it! I did wonder for a few seconds whether we might be about to be Sherlocked, but something far more exciting was on the table.

It came in the “What’s new in Swift” session on Tuesday. 2m45s into the session, Nicole Jacque begins talking about Swift Packages, and suddenly, there’s a screenshot of the package index! Right there in a WWDC session! I couldn’t quite believe it.

I want to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who was involved in making this happen. I have to think this decision wasn’t taken lightly, and it’s so lovely to see that people inside Apple think what we’re working on is important enough to include alongside their own work. The Swift Package Index remains the most exciting part of my work every week, and I can’t wait to see where we take it over the next year.

So, that was my highlight of this week, but that was far from the only exciting thing that happened! As usual, I’m not going to try and cover every announcement or new API today. We have several months for that!

I hope you all had a great WWDC week, and enjoy the collection of links below, as always!
