How we delivered a Swift app in under 2 months

Swift was released by Apple in 2014, while many were discussing if Swift was ready for commercial applications, we chose Swift 2.2 to create an application for a major Telco. This was migrated from an existing PhoneGap prototype provided to the client by the POC team that had quit.

 

Note: Would it be worth if there were no screenshots of the project and no mention of the Client? However the code and other details can be discussed.

The project - the importance for a startup specially in tie-ups with a major ASX top 10 organsiation

The state - The state of the project when I took over

The timelines - Required as of yesterday

The impediments - Staff, their capabilities, app passing Pen-testing and related costs

The first cut - Using Swift just like Objective-C

The second cut - Using extensions and swift functions

The current status - off the app store as the company ceased trading at one point

What we learned and what worked in our favour and what didn't

* Speed of implementation of a Swift project

* Issues when working with an ever moving target

* Advantages of using Swift over PhoneGap or Objective-C

Target Audience
