WWDC 2016 – Initial Thoughts

WWDC 2016 ended last week and though I’m still working through the mountain of session videos it generated here is a list of the things I’m most excited about so far:

1. New Core Data Additions – Lots of neat new Core Data stuff, namely NSPersistantContainer. Being able to set up your whole Core Data stack in a few lines of code is awesome.

2. ISO8601 DateFormatter – Finally some first class support for the only sane date format in existence, yyyy/mm/dd. XKCD agrees.

3. Visual Memory Debugger in Xcode 8 – This looks so much nicer than the current memory debugging experience, I can’t wait to take it for a spin.
