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.
Yesterday I was catching up on some of the recent proposals on the Swift Evolution Github page and seen a very interesting proposal that I thought I would discuss in brief detail.
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...
