by Aaron Brethorst | May 26, 2014

With one week until WWDC, the rumor mill is continuing to churn out some of the oddest grist I've seen in recent memory. First, there are the entirely logical and believable rumors, like that Apple will be updating the look and feel of OS X to more closely resemble iOS 7 (well, iOS 8, I suppose).

by Aaron Brethorst | May 03, 2014

update: Brent is now maintaining a canonical list of all Vesper Sync Diary entries.

In case you've missed any part of Brent Simmon's fantastic series of articles on adding Core Data sync support to Vesper, I've taken the trouble of rolling up links to all of the articles below. I hope they're as useful for you as they've been for me.
