Weekly Roundup

by Aaron Brethorst | August 05, 2013

Hello, and welcome our weekly roundup! If you haven’t been to the Apple Developer Center lately, you should go take a peek.

Meanwhile, I’m very excited to see that Kathy Sierra is blogging and tweeting again. If you’re not familiar with her, you owe it to yourself to a) follow her on Twitter, b) subscribe to her blog, and c) watch this video of her presentation from last year’s Business of Software conference.

Best,
Aaron
