Chris Lattner is leaving Apple (for Tesla)
Big news: Chris Lattner, a prime mover behind developer and infrastructure tools at Apple such as LLVM and Clang and essentially the inventor of Swift is leaving Apple “later this month to pursue an opportunity in another space.”
I wonder what opportunity pulled Lattner away from Apple. Thanks to him for all his good work for Apple developers, and I hope he enjoys his time in space.
Update: Lattner’s not going into space after all, but he is going to Tesla, so pretty close!
