Episode 230: They Defy Conventional Wisdom

Daniel and Manton react to stock prices for Apple and Twitter, follow-up on WWDC ticket sales, and touch on the ethics of badge sharing and Apple theoretically overselling tickets. Finally, they appreciate that they’re now both working on Swift code in their respective work.
