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.
Outline/structure of the Session
Note: This is just a draft at this moment
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 POC - what the client saw and signed for vs the prototype/hierarchy
The first cut - Using Swift just like Objective-C
The second cut - Using extensions and swift functions
The release - Acceptance by the client
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
This is a case study, the learning outcomes can be subjective to each participant depending on how they relate to the case study.
However, these are still the following outcomes
* Speed of implementation of a Swift project
* Issues when working with an ever moving target
* Advantages of using Swift over PhoneGap or Objective-C
