In other news, private can now be reached from extensions. Goodbye fileprivate! "With this change, let us never speak of access controls again" ๐Ÿ˜†

The final big piece of the missing puzzle was Xcode. Xcode 9 is an AMAZING and fast upgrade - hello indexing while building!!! - that should make working with Swift a much more pleasurable experience.

Oh and that pain you went through to upgrade from Swift 2.0 -> Swift 3.0 is nil for Swift 4.0. Devs are reporting about 2 hours or less to upgrade massive code bases!

I really hope all of you who were able to get to San Jose last week made lots of new friends and enjoyed collecting all the pins! I'm super sad I couldn't attend this year, but I'm hoping to catch up with everyone again at try! Swift NYC & try! Swift India, especially once all the WWDC changes have been processed and we can all learn the real-world implications in more depth! So to celebrate, use the TRYWWDC17 code by next Monday to get a discount for both conferences!

More WWDC updates below! Happy New Year of coding ๐Ÿš€
