Since Apple introduced Swift at WWDC ’14, I’ve been using the new language steadily in my new projects and existing projects. At first it was a love and mostly hate relationship. Slow compiler, slow Arrays, cryptic error messages, Signal 11 galore... it was the worst. When version 1.2 came out, most of my hate of the immature language and tools vanished and finally the benefits compared to Objective-C became very clear to me.
Robert van Loghem has been programming since he was 13 years old in Turbo Pascal, after doing over a decade of backend development in Java, and some Scala, he started developing Objective-C iOS apps in 2010 for NS and a little bit of ProRail. Now in 2015 he’s doing 100% Swift at Suitsupply.
