#2016 Summer Digest

The summer is over (well, for some of us πŸ™‚ and it’s time to sum up interesting stuff for the last three months. And quite a lot has happened! Android released it’s newest version – Nougat. It is focused on security, speed and nice new features, like split screen and direct notifications reply. Developers have their own new toys, like ConstraintLayout and Direct Boot. On other fronts, Apple helps us learn Swift with Swift Playgrounds, and we still have Olympic Games in Rio, as well as great music releases by ZHU, Tom Odell or Mumford & Sons. There were a few game releases, but the the major ones are ahead.

As you can see, the diversity is big, so it’s your choice where to invest the time!

As always, here’s the link to the previous Digest πŸ˜‰ Thanks for reading!

P. S. Yep, my monthly, then two-month digests have been converted to seasonal ones. This is because I find it extremely difficult to sort all and do it on time. Hopefully, this new format will keep me organized πŸ™‚
