Ok... so yes, I'm still obsessed with
ARKit... Seeing this simple change to how we order food definitely rocked my imagination of how disrupting
ARKit truly is! And the fact that it's on an iPhone that people already have in their hands instead of a new device like Google Glass or Oculus Rift definitely gives Apple a head start, despite Google and Facebook being ahead in the Augmented Reality race in other ways. So excited to see what else you all build!
P.S. Happy July 4th 🇺🇸🗽🎆! To celebrate, use discount code

Chris Lattner on the Realm WWDC 2017 Swift panel
Thanks @olebegemann for organizing Chris Lattner's thoughts during the Realm WWDC Panel
"My goal for Swift has always been and still is total world domination. Itʼs a modest goal. [Applause] But this is not Swift 5 weʼre talking about. This is a 10- or 15- or 20-year goal. So how are we going to achieve that? Itʼs the same process as writing a big app: you take the goal and decompose it into subproblems and then solve the individual problems. And the way you get to world domination with a language is you have to have a killer app first. You have to have a reason for a community to learn that programming language. There are so many languages that exist out there that nobody uses. And with Swift, that was clearly iOS programming."

How To Get More App Downloads by Rethinking Your Mobile Marketing Strategy
"Unfortunately, as more and more developers are starting to realize, the App Store is not the solution. With more a thousand new apps submitted each day (let me emphasize that: one thousand new apps each day!) it’s almost impossible to stand out. The new iOS 11 Apple App Store design is not a solution — it shows even fewer apps on the main page than it used to. While Apple might believe this is better UX for the end user, this new design does nothing to help the chance of discovery via the App Store for a small app developer trying to get an app off the ground."
Great tips! Especially the app partnership one!
