Hi everyone!

This past week, I've had the opportunity to participate in one of my favourite iOS/Swift conferences - Swift Leeds! If you were one of the people who looked for me and didn't spot me, here is why: I used one of the SwiftLeeds Live tickets, and joined via the live stream (I might have scrubbed back to watch some of the talks after hours, but ... sssshhh - don't tell Adam!).

Anyway, it was a great experience, and loved that there were many new speakers (some of them even first-time speakers)! The team mentioned they're going to publish videos of the talks in the coming weeks, and I can wholeheartedly recommend setting aside some time for watching them.

Meanwhile, Mikaela and Paul are planning to record another episode of Swift over Coffee, and have reached out to the community for input to the question "should you be using Swift everywhere, or is it better to learn other languages, too"? There was a wide spectrum of answers, and it'll be interesting to see what Paul's and Mikaela's opinion is.

Sindre (who certainly can't be blamed for putting all his eggs in one basket - language-wise) seems to be convinced that Swift is the future of AI.

By the way, if you're interested in using Swift in Cloud Functions for Firebase, check out this Uservoice poll, and make your voice be heard.

Thanks for reading! I always love hearing from you, so if you've got any feedback (or suggestions!) just hit that reply button and let me hear your thoughts!
