So here we are – Issue 164 – and the last issue of Swift Developments for 2018! I’ve not really announced it yet, but I’m going to be taking a few weeks off over the Christmas and New Year period to spend some time with the family and have a bit of down time which means that the next issue won’t hit your inbox until January 8th. Before we dive into this weeks links though I wanted to say a few thankyou’s to round off 2018. Firstly, thanks to everyone who has taken the time and effort to write and publish articles, give talks, build libraries and create videos this year – without you there would be no content to feature in Swift Developments and the Swift and iOS community wouldn’t be as vibrant as it is. Thanks also to the sponsors I’ve had this year. Your support has made it much easier to keep Swift Developments going and it has been a great help. Finally, thanks to you for subscribing and reading this year – I hope it’s been useful and hopefully it will continue to be that way in 2019. So with that said, have a very happy holiday season and New Year period and I’ll see you again in 2019!
