WWDC 2019 :: what to see

    At WWDC 2019, Apple showed off one of the best Keynote presentations in the last few years. But this is only the beginning. We are waiting for more than 100 sessions from Apple engineers. I have put together reports on the list that I think will be useful to most iOS developers. If you do not know what to undertake, then try to start with them.

    Please note that not all reports are available yet. You can watch them either live (Moscow time), or a couple of days after the broadcast. Check the time with the official schedule , as it may change.

    Project catalyst

    We officially heard about the Marzipan project last year. In this, Apple kept its promise and enabled all iOS developers to port iPad applications to macOS. Now it is called Project Catalyst .
