This Week I Learned #16

Here are some of the things I learned this week, in the order I’ve noted them down.

  • This week I picked up aws-sdk-swift with the goal of integrating with SES, Amazon’s cloud email service. After some initial struggle figuring out which API version to use and how, I managed to send emails from a server-side Swift app I am currently working on.

  • Some valuable lessons about S3, AWS billing, and CDNs by Chris Short (link).

  • SwiftUI’s new Menu component is now available on iOS 14 as of Beta 3. I suspect contextual menus to gain more traction on iOS and I am happy to see them join a growing list of SwiftUI components.
