Join us Thursday, June 15th for a presentation by Brian Pratt, a Software Crafter from 8th Light who is actively developing open source tools for using Swift outside the Xcode ecosystem!

Abstract: Swift is admittedly pretty cool, but can it succeed outside the Apple bubble? Let's take a look at Swift's offerings outside of simple app development, as well as some of the roadblocks it may face before it can become a more ubiquitous tool in the toolbelt of crafters everywhere.

Logistics: 8th Light will provide pizza and beverages. If you need a ride from the Libertyville Metra station, please contact Eric Meyer for details. Doors open at 5:30, and the talk will begin at 6.
