Swift ThoughtsSwift Thoughts

I had an incredible time at SwiftSummit last week! Learned A LOT and got the best gift from @NeoNacho! Sign up on their website (or just keep following my newsletter and Twitter) to get alerted when the videos from the talks come out! Should be around a month or so. Meanwhile, here are austenmc's field notes.

One thing I don't think about too much, but that @kristinathai included in her talk on How to Build A Compelling Watch App is accessibility. She had a slide with this tweet showing how designing for permanent disabilities (such as for someone who has only one arm) can benefit people with a situational disability (a new parent holding a baby in one arm!).

Haven't thought about it this way, but that definitely brings it home. We will all have situational disabilities at some point - thinking of walking through the airport with a hot cup of tea in one hand and rolling my suitcase while trying to use my phone to check my gate!). Thanks @kristinathai for including that in your talk!

Oh, and I hope you had a great Haloween! Thanks @allonsykraken for my costume!
