I was writing last week about the “new Apple”, that has Swift take part as an organization to the Google Summer of Code. On the same note, this week, Norman Maurer from Apple gave a talk at try! Swift Tokyo in which he announced swift-nio, an open source low-level networking framework. So Apple just announced and open sourced a framework at a conference that’s not WWDC 😲. That’s in addition to lots of members of the Swift team who are guests on various podcasts, or give talks at other conferences. Moreover, Apple is asking for feedback on the networking APIs. Make sure to contribute if you have something to say.
Keep up the good work and the openness, Apple 👍! The community really appreciates this 🙇♂️.
