CloudKit and Firebase are great options for building out the backend portion of your mobile app. But what if you have trust issues and dislike that CloudKit doesn’t work with Android? What if you wanted to take a little more control of the backend, but felt you didn’t have time to master a new language and all the tools of that trade? Well, Swift is now a language that can be used server-side and several frame-works have grown to help make taking control of the full-stack a reality. Vapor is one of those server-side Swift frameworks and we’ll be diving into the basics of building your own web api with it. Come join us!
