Welcome to the very first issue of The.Swift.Dev's monthly newsletter!

First of all, thank you for subscribing, I really appreciate it!

I believe that my newsletter issues are going to be outstanding ones, with real values for Swift developers. Not just because I'm going to share my recent articles, but in each issue I'll try to collect and sum up everything what happened during the last month. So you should expect longer issues, published always on the first Monday of each month in your mailbox! I hope you'll like it, let's get started!!!

The.Swift.Dev - January

In January I started a new brand for my server side Swift ideas called Binary Birds. I open sourced some new useful repos like a CI service written in Swift, and a tool that converts XCTest output to JSON. I've also created a couple of new interesting articles and cleaned off the dust from some old ones. Here are my posts from this month.

"A podcast for the Swift community, by the Swift community." - The Swift Community Podcast
