What do you do when you’re ready to upgrade to Swift, but rewriting your existing Objective-C apps isn’t an option? Using Etsy as a case study, I'll discuss a blueprint for integrating Swift incrementally into your apps. Swift provides rich features for Objective-C interoperability, but applying them to your current codebase isn’t always straightforward. We’ll cover technical details, such as linting and managing dependencies, as well as organizational strategies for gathering support, and other things we’ve learned at Etsy along the way. You’ll be prepared for a smooth transition to Swift: both in your code and in your company.
