    The syntax is very C-like, with defined templates, etc.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:51:01 PM
    We're looking at the evolution of the contents of a collection over the course of a programmatic loop, which should be a boon for algorithmic coding -- and for chasing down infinite loops.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 6:51:28 PM
    Having attended the last few WWDC keynotes, this is definitely the most technical discussion ever held on stage during the actual keynote.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:51:39 PM
    With just a few lines of code, the coder was able to assign the values of a variable to the position of a blimp on the screen, and the app is now running right in the dev environment. No building required.

  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:52:11 PM
    Latner: Now jumping to show us the finished product
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:52:21 PM
    So we're now going to see what the app looks like on an iPad, and of course it's identical to what we just saw.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:52:32 PM
    And with SceneKit the game quickly turns to 3D.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:52:40 PM
    Latner: I think you guys are going to absolutely love it
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:53:05 PM
    As a coder, I can tell ya, Swift looks impressive. Proof in the pudding, grain of salt, etc. etc. But what I just saw looks great.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 6:53:11 PM
    It's 11:52am local time, so that might be the last big announcement today.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:53:14 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:53:17 PM
    Federighi: Swift is going to be ready for primetime out of the gate. There's a Swift language guide available to you now in iBooks.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:53:36 PM
    Federighi: When iOS and OS X are available, Day 1, you can submit apps written in Swift to the App Store
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:53:54 PM
    Federighi: As you've been able to see, iOS 8 is a huge developer release and a great consumer release.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:54:13 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:54:14 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:54:19 PM
    Federighi: It's also an unprecedented developer release. Going to be avallable to those of you here in beta today
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:54:27 PM
    Federighi: You get it, available to everyone else in the fall
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:54:43 PM
    (
    That means next iPhone will be in the Fall, no summer release like some hoped)
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:54:47 PM
    Cook back up
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:55:11 PM
    Cook: This morning you've seen Yosemite, the future of OS X with an incredible new design, amamzing new features and engineered to work seamless with iOS.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:55:17 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:55:17 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:55:18 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:55:30 PM
    Cook: You've seen iOs 8, the biggest release of iOS since the introduction of the App Store. It's huge for developers
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:55:39 PM
    Cook: You've seen how our Os, devices all work togther in harmony.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 6:55:42 PM
    For those keeping track, there was major Mac hardware at WWDC 2013 and WWDC 2012, but nothing here today.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:55:58 PM
    Cook: Integrated and continuous experience across all of our products. Can see how devs can extend experieince further than ever have before
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:56:09 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:56:10 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:56:23 PM
    Cook: Apple engineers, platforms, devices, and services together, we do this so we can create a seamless experience for our users that is unparalleled in the industry
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:56:30 PM
    Cook: This is something only Apple can do
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 6:56:38 PM
    But, major theme seemed to be OS X and iOS devices working more closely together -- all in search of
    a "seamless experience."
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:56:45 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:56:54 PM
    Cook: You've seen a few people on stage this morning but there are thousands of people who made today possible. I'd like to take a moment before we depart to recognize them.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:57:14 PM
    Big group of people directly in front of the stage are standing up
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:57:38 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 6:57:39 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 6:57:46 PM
    And, that's all folks.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:57:46 PM
    Cook: Thanks everyone and says to enjoy the week
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 6:57:50 PM

    Cue obligatory Pharell song.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 7:00:25 PM
    Takeaways - This is a huge software show, and that means Apple will have a HUGE fall.

  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 7:00:41 PM
