Hello again,

in the end of the last month I've started a brand new discord server to discuss anything about Swift development, projects, ideas, etc.

Join now to start the discussion! 


The.Swift.Dev - February

February was quite busy for me, I couldn't deliver as much as I wanted, but still lots of new things happened. As you might noticed I'm trying to operate two brands for my smaller projects. Binary Birds is the place for anything related to server side Swift, CoreKit is my visual frontend library that helps me building appleOS apps. I've open sourced last month the following things:

I've also written some new articles & polished an old one:

The Swift Community - February

New betas are still arriving for Xcode 10.2, we are definitely getting closer to the final release (including Swift 5). Apple also enforced two factor authentication for developer accounts, plus WWDC19 dates were officially confirmed: June 3-7, San Jose. Although my favorite thing this month was the SSS celebration from RW:
