PyData Chicago 2016
Featured Post

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...

As a follower and contributor to the Swift language every once and awhile I like to take stock of the latest proposals on Swift Evolution and see what has been accepted, what is in-review, or what has been rejected for the current release of the language.  This allows me to gauge the direction of the language and to also see what Apple's reaction is to different proposal's in case I ever wanted to write my own proposal for Swift. 

This year Apple's World Wide Developer Conference was held in San Francisco from June 13th to the June 17th and there was no shortage of big announcements. These announcements were mixed with platform changes, to new developer API's, to complete updates with Swift in Swift 3.0.  However, in an technical blog such as this, it would be hard to cover all of the big announcements and every new API so I thought I would at least cover what I consider 5 interesting points that I took away from the announcements and videos this year at WWDC.
