“Maryland is home to many growing companies that are changing the business landscape, and this event brought together entrepreneurs and business leaders to learn about entrepreneurial resources,” said TEDCO president Rob Rosenbaum at the Maryland Entrepreneur Expo Wednesday.
It wasn't just entrepreneurs and other members of the state's growing tech community at the expo: Governor-Elect Larry Hogan stopped by the event. Hogan didn't make any specific announcements about how the technology community will play into how he leads the state but did say it's high on his radar when he takes office this January.

I watched the Google I/O conference this week from my desk in Baltimore. If you didn’t have time to stream any of the sessions, here are a few interesting resources and highlights that could be useful to you.

Swift is a type safe language, so the compiler performs type checks to ensure that if a part of your code expects an Integer then you can’t pass it a String instead. Type inference is a great feature that allows you to dispense with explicit declarations of a variable’s or return value’s type. If the compiler can infer the type from the context of the declaration, then you don’t need to be explicit. So, while you could write this:

In line with last year's pre-conference post, here are some sesssions I'm particularly looking forward to:
I recently took a trip to the Middle East (Iran, Oman, and the UAE), where I visited my cousin Jonathan Roberts, who is a Design and Technology teacher at Repton School Dubai, a sister school to Repton School in the United Kingdom. I was really impressed by the amazing workshops and top of the line technology Jonathan’s students were using. As soon as I saw this, I was excited to show it to Baltimoreans. From An Estuary to the Baltimore Robotics Center, from the Foundery to the Digital Harbor Foundation, Baltimore’s educational technology and maker spaces are burgeoning.
