Raywenderlich.com Abandoning Swift

I have an important announcement - starting today forward, raywenderlich.com is abandoning Swift, and going back to our roots of Objective-C!

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.raywenderlich.com/1239-raywenderlich-com-abandoning-swift

What’s your experience with Objective-C?

  • Obj-C since iOS 5 and still using it jeje
  • Multiple apps for enterprises (bank, cars, pharmaceutical, etc…)

What part of Swift sucks the most? (It’s OK if you can’t narrow it down to just one)

  • As a whole… that moment when you open a swift project after a swift - xcode update and you have infinite warnings and errors…
  • Choosing beetwen structs… enums… classes… I am thankful for the latest tutorial on that topic by the way.

Do you agree facial hair should be limited to eyebrows?

  • Full beard and mustache is cool

  • Only mustache… you are a hipster

  • This would actually be cool, have both Obj-C and Swift and it was posted a day prior to 1st of April jajaja

*swift kiddie intensifies *

What’s your experience with ObjectMultiple

I wrote most of the logic of a Nasa mission computer in objective-c

What part of Swift sucks the most? (It’s OK if you can’t narrow it down to just on

I hate it because when I open xcode it never say me “good morning Paolo”
Also after I close the playground I have to tidy up the room and all the toys scattered around!

Do you agree facial hair should be limited to eyebrows?

Yes but I want world at peace so they should be rainbow colored

Should scrap iOS and go Android 100% :grin:

I have it from reputable sources that Apple is also dropping Swift and moving over to Lisp.

Impossible, Raywenderlich always been on latest technology, no matter how difficult it is.
Let’s make it easy, a big April fool.

And I was just about to cancel my subscription

I would actually be really glad if this was true… I love Objective-C !

I couldn’t stop laughing reading this.
Happy April Fools’ Day!

Happy April fools day!!! lmao

OMG The main reason why i joined RW was to learn/practice Swift coding. I’ll have to cancel my subscription…
Any tips on good Swift tutorial sites? Going trough Apple’s documentation alone is not really doing it for me

Oh, no, I already have blasted all my Obj-C books…:cry:…Happy April Fool’s Day!!! :laughing:

HAH, great prank. For one moment I thought you were serious. :joy:

It’s a prank, don’t worry.

I doubt that. Its mr Wenderlich officially, why would he make fun out of such a serious issue.
It’s true that swift has given apple a lot of headache lately with the version changes
