Now that Swift apps are showing up in the App Store, its time for some practical advice. Both talks this month touch on, in one way or another, steps to help you ship your first Swift app.

First up, our very own James Dennis ( talks about his take on Swift coming from a different language. Although his particular experience is with Python, the talk is intended to encourage developers coming from any language to take that first step.

James is an iOS developer @ VHX ( and co-organizes this Meetup.

Next, Orta Therox ( will be discussing a non-functional programmer's experience writing an app in Swift. From what I hear, there will be quite a few war stories :)

Orta is the design dictator @ CocoaPods ( and leads mobile @ Artsy (

Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 13th!
