In this talk the presenters will talk about their experience with Apple’s new programming language: its features, concepts and similarities to other well established languages. To make it more fun live coding will be involved. They will share experiences based on working with the language on a project, touching subjects like testing, tools and general stability.
Taking Swift for a spin
I'm a developer with a decade of experience building and delivering web-scale applications in a variety of technologies and domains. When I joined ThoughtWorks I became a consult, developer and trainer with a soft spot for mobile applications. My specialties are domain driven design and agile software development. Throughout my career I collected supplementary knowledge in product management and business analysis. I'm equally excited about technical challenges and improving ways of working. I like to share my experiences by speaking at conferences and meet ups.
I transitioned from a background in economics and finance to software and technology and joined ThoughtWorks as a developer in early 2014. I'm passionate about discovering cutting-edge technologies, especially through gaining hands-on experience at hackathons. Innovation in mobile and hardware are of particular interest to me.
I'm a Consultant and Software Developer at ThoughtWorks Germany and I'm excited about anything new in technology - lately especially HTML5 and functional programming. I've been working on web applications since 2009 and enjoy seeing web technologies becoming more mature and growing up.
