Today I was analyzing a potential bottleneck in some computation I was doing with Swift and thought I would try a basic linked list data structure to store data instead of an array.  It soon dawned on me that I have never created a linked list in Swift before and thought this might be a good opportunity for a Swift Playground to test out my idea.  Sure enough, using Playgrounds was a great way to test out my code and make sure it was running the way I wanted it to before integrating it into my project.

Last week I started building an iOS application in Swift 3.0 and Xcode 8 and was able to get a good portion of the application completed.  Towards the end of last week I became aware of the need to integrate a Unity / Vuforia exported project into my existing iOS Swift project to enable an augmented reality feature in the iOS application I was working on.

This past weekend I am happy to have attended PyData Chicago 2016, put on by PyData and held at the University of Illinois Chicago at the UIC Student Center.  PyData Chicago 2016 was a conference all about using Python along with data science and open source tools to help data scientists, developers, and academics better get their jobs done in a more efficient way.  Before I go any further...

The other day on Twitter I seen mention of the Taylor Series and it made me think back to calculus and how much I enjoyed the Taylor and Maclaurin series because learning about them was my first exposure into series and sequence approximations.
