A journey towards Frameworks and Swift

A journey towards Frameworks and Swift

The exciting journey of changing your project architecture basing it on Frameworks and allowing developers to start using Swift in the SoundCloud main app.

Since the launch of Swift in 2014 we had used Swift only in the SoundCloud watch app. The need of having reusable business logic among other reasons led to a new architecture for the project based on dynamic frameworks where Swift would be a first citizen member. In this talk we'll explain the approach we followed at SoundCloud to change our app architecture allowing developers to start using Swift in the project. Learnings, caveats, and how the project and the company has benefit from this journey.
