S1E21: Live from AltConf 2019

In this special episode we’re joined by our friends Kristina Fox, JP Simard, Gui Rambo, and Kaya Thomas as we discuss everything new from WWDC19. Strap yourselves in –this is a long one! - News: what *isn’t* news this week? We dive into dark mode, Xcode 11, ARKit, RealityKit, Vision OCR, and more. - Focus on Swift 5.1: how opaque return types, function builders, property wrappers, and module stability combine to make SwiftUI possible. - Project Catalyst: now that we can build our iOS apps for macOS, who is going to use it, what advantages and disadvantages does it have, and are we going to see mass adoption? - Open Ballot: What are your early reactions to SwiftUI? Our sponsor for this episode was MacStadium, provider of Apple Mac infrastructure-as-a-service. If you’re building apps for the Apple ecosystem, learn more about MacStadium’s infrastructure at macstadium.com. We’re also grateful to AltConf for letting us use their amazing space, to Breaker for recording and mixing the episode, and our wonderful guest hosts for giving up their time to take part.
