Take the compiler and run with it: a quick story of Swift obfuscator

Take the compiler and run with it: a quick story of Swift obfuscator

Imagine a group of people with no background in the compilers nor C++.
Imagine them coming across a wonderful open source project, such as the Swift compiler.
What could happen if they started playing with it? Hacking, adding changes left and right, taking parts and making them work the way they were never intended?
Surely, the output would be some gibberish without meaning!
This story really happened. Come to listen how and why. Sometimes the gibberish is exactly what you need.
