⚠️ Update, September 28, 2020

Kristaps Grinbergs will be taking over the newsletter with help from the community. The mailing list might go on a hiatus; we’re looking into ways of continuing it. Reason for it being a cost center we’ve previously covered with sponsorships; figuring out how to move that forward may take some time. Thank you for your patience!

It has almost been three years since Jesse announced stepping down from writing the Swift Weekly Brief, a newsletter he started soon after Swift was open sourced in December 2015.

In January 2018, soon after he stepped down, I took over the project. Since then, I’ve been curating the (since then biweekly) newsletter, with a lot of help from Kristaps Grinbergs.

After an amazing almost three years of curating the newsletter, I’ve also, like Jesse did in the past, decided to move on from the project. Similarly, I would love for the community to take over the project and keep more than 10.000 developers in the loop of what’s going on in the Swift.org and other Apple open source projects.

We will be shutting down the mailing list after issue 170.

You can help out in some specific ways: posting interesting links and forum posts to the meta-issues we create, and to write (part of) the newsletter. All of this has been documented in our contribution guidelines.

Please get in touch if you’re interested — I’m more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

Thank you to everyone involved in this project, and specifically Jesse for starting this project, and Kristaps for the immense help for the last months. And to all of you who’ve read the newsletter, learned from it, and shared it with others.

I’m so proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish. It’s been an amazing experience, and an honor.

Until next time,
