Jelly hasn’t had enough discussion of diversity yet, Jake discusses whether Apple should use a stick or a carrot to try to enforce accessible apps, and Ben explains how the Swift runtime works.

Meanwhile, Jake talks about GovHack, a hackathon based around open data from services like Plus, he and Ben have just shipped a new app for multiple platforms, and it spurs a discussion about the best method for targeting the various platforms.

Not to be outdone, Jelly discusses his QA “experiment”, looking at the benefits of having other people provide feedback on your code, and the wide variety of approaches to developing apps.
