Updates from Apple and Snowflake

I highly recommend y’all watch this in your spare time.

This keynote includes some really great updates and additions we can begin to use in our classrooms.
Most of it won’t be available until June so we will be able to learn it over the summer and use it next year.
This is some very exciting stuff from Apple!!

There is also a link below showing some of the new stuff in Snowflake.
