WWDC 2014

WWDC 2014

A lot of exciting news from Apple at the WWDC last week! The next version of iOS was announced with many new features. Probably the biggest news was the new programming language, named Swift. iOS 8 will be available to the public in Fall 2014. Until then, I’ll be getting more familiar with iOS 8 and maybe we can use some of its new features in our apps. For more information on iOS 8, please visit https://www.apple.com/ios/ios8/.

Below are some notes of the upcoming iOS 8.

Family Sharing

  • Up to six people in your family can share purchases from the App Store without sharing accounts.
  • Family purchases can be made with the same credit card.
  • Can approve a child’s spending from a parent’s device.
  • Enable “Ask to Buy” to require your child to get permission before making purchases.

App Bundles

  • A number of new features are coming to the App Store, including the ability for developers to sell bundles of apps at a discount.
  • Maybe we will see a bundle of RWH Technology apps.

HomeKit & HealthKit

  • HomeKit will make it easier for developers to create apps for you to control devices around your house. Devices may include lights, heating, doors, etc.
  • HealthKit is a platform for integrating all your health and fitness data in iOS.
  • Both HomeKit and HealthKit have a lot of potential for helping those with disabilities.

Swift

  • Swift is a new, modern programming language for iOS.
  • Includes features to make code more expressive. This gives the programmer more flexibility in design.
  • Is a safer language, so fewer errors and therefore fewer crashes and bugs.
  • The interactive playground will be great for those learning how to program. Students can type code and immediately see results.

San Diego Race For Autism – Team RWH Thanks You

Tiffany, Tigger, Inna, Robert

Tiffany, Tigger, Inna, Robert

On March 22, 2014, Team RWH ran in the annual San Diego Race for Autism. It was a great race and we had a lot of fun. Funds raised help families, teacher grants and organizations in the San Diego area. We wish to thank the National Foundation for Autism Research (NFAR) for hosting the event. We would also like to thank our sponsors for their support. We greatly appreciate it!

Team RWH consisted of myself, my wife Tiffany and my mother Inna. My mother travelled all the way from Nova Scotia, Canada to participate!

The race course was a 5km loop through Balboa Park. There were nearly 7000 participants of all ages. Even dogs were welcome! The event had a super hero theme, so many of the participants were dressed in costume. We all finished with good times. Congratulations to Inna who finished 3rd in her age group! All participants who crossed the finish line won a medal.

It was a really great experience to participate in the San Diego Race For Autism. NFAR is a great organization and it was good to support the local autism community. NFAR is accepting donations for the event until April 5, so it’s not too late to donate. Again, thank you very much for your support.

Below are some photos from the event.
