WWDC 2019 Video Transcripts Now Available


Take advantage of transcripts to quickly discover and share information presented in WWDC19 videos. You can search by keyword, see all instances where the keyword is mentioned in the video, go straight to the time it was mentioned, and even share a link to that specific time.

It seems like they are more human-edited this year, which is good because the sessions now serve as defacto documentation in many cases.


Hook 1.0

CogSci Apps:

Hook supplies the missing links in macOS, to allow users to access the documents that are most relevant to the task at hand. The app, based on cognitive science, allows users to instantly create notes linked to a document, or other information item, providing instant navigation between the two.

Hook doesn’t replace any of a user’s favorite Mac apps, but instead augments them. For instance, by using a simple keyboard hotkey combination, a Mac user can instantly create a new item (in the app of their choice) that Hook links to the current item (such as a web page, PDF, email or file). With Hook, a document can be linked to an outline, an OmniFocus project, an email, and many other types of information.

It works with EagleFiler’s record links.

GDPR Fines: So Now We Know

Doug Lhotka:

In the past few days, Marriott and BA were both hit with $100M+ fines for breaches. While both are going to appeal, the benchmark has been set, and we now know that the regulators are serious about enforcement. One interesting fact – if the reports are accurate, Marriott is being fined under the GDPR, while the breach occurred before it went into effect. That certainly changes the risk equation, as retroactive security is, alas, still beyond our ability today. I suspect we’ll see a similar seriousness with CCPA (the new California regulation), though those costs will include consumer litigation as well.

Gosh Darn SwiftUI

All the answers you found here don’t mean to be complete or detail, the purpose here is to act as a cheat sheet or a place that you can pick up keywords you can use to search for more detail.

Only Apple knows the actual implementation. But it’s certain that AttributeGraph.framework has its own reflection system.

I said “I’m looking forward to your great libraries using metadata” in try! Swift but I had never thought Apple do it, I think Apple started to use metadata because ABI stability was built since Swift5. In fact, ABI stability brings us great benefits!

A clever teardown, and not far off in principle
