That was quite a day at WWDC. My big take aways: 1. NeXT is finally dead. ObjC and IB are done. AppKit too. 2. React has won (…like it or not). 3. Mac-specific software is not long for this Earth. Not a single ADA winner was for macOS.

How do you see it playing out with (2)? Do you think Apple will back down?

Some interesting conclusions. Why do you think IB in particular is dead? Last time I checked that was still the xCode workflow?

It’s not in the default template of Xcode 11. Default does not include a storyboard.

When you say wasn’t for the Mac what do you mean? Because this seems to be the only cross platform app. Maybe I’m missing something?

I just meant there were no pure macOS apps in the Apple Design Awards. Probably first time ever there has been no macOS exclusive app at all.

Sure. I didn’t mean immediately, but it won’t be the focus going forward. A bit like what Carbon was. Will be here for years to come.

Nope. The old IB as I knew it as a student is resurrected (with some new paint) and Ali Ozer himself told us to use AppKit if we want to be cool boys

Going forward, it will all be about the preview mode. Not an interface declaration tool. I wouldn’t call that IB. I don’t think you will find many developers who decide to make a new app with AppKit. Why would you if you can use SwiftUI and support other devices?
