I started out with the plan to code a simple text editor for that supports Markdown and ended up reading an entire article on "Lexical Analysis" and on how to build a programming language. Best article I've read in quite a while by :

Just started working on my first app in and the first thing I notice is that I can't get rid of the label's solid background color. Turns out it's an issue related to vibrancy: . 💡 Don't start with a popover as your first macOS project!

That's a very good point! 👍 I was a little surprised as well when I saw you making edits "by hand" in your article rather than editing the file directly but losing context is a valid argument. I never looked at it that way but actually experienced it many times.

Kinda reminds me of myself... 🙈 I’m still hoping that one day we’ll be able to add images to code documentation. Would be lot easier than drawing this ASCII art.

The past 4 years were the warmest on record, confirms. Global average surface temperature in 2018 was approximately 1.0° C above the pre-industrial baseline in a clear sign of continuing long-term due to record CO2 levels.

Storing is like hiding a treasure chest deep in the jungle without telling anyone about it. When you forget where you put it (or die), it’s gone for good.

There are few apps that really impress me with their user interface. is one of them. It's a perfect mix of functionality and simplicity. It doesn't distract you with loads of unnecessary controls and lets you focus on your task. It's pure elegance.

Having worked with many highly qualified , I’m always disappointed by the gender ratio at conferences, especially the speakers’ gender ratio. Kudos to the team to give it a little boost this year. 👍

I’m really frustrated that the company who created such a great tool which helped me to get and stay in touch with friends all over the world (aka ⁦⁦⁩) continues to do such an unethical bullshit. 🤮

I would do it consistently for all "for" versions: "for each number in 0...3", so that wouldn't be an issue. Breaking change is indisputable and I see your point with the other two minus points.

Breaking change → agreed. The other ➖ is not really a ➖ for me, because: • as a control flow keyword, "for each" will have a different color / font weight in most Xcode themes • it's not called on an object, it begins a line • it's actually doing kind of the same thing!

💡 Just a thought: What if the "for" keyword in was renamed to "for each"? ➕ easier for coding newbies to get into the language ➕ loops read more like English sentences ➖ longer (but nothing more to type when using auto completion) ➖❓ What do you think, devs?

One reason why I love conferences like is the incredible diversity. Developers from 29 countries attended the conference this time. It's wonderful to see how people from all over the world become friends, share knowledge and collaborate with great mutual .
