Excerpt: Ever considered developing an iOS app, but not sure where to start? In this presentation, I will provide a brief overview of developing an app in iOS9 using Swift 2, and will discuss some of the differences between Android development, including design considerations, navigation idioms, IDEs, layout, and deployment. Get tips and tricks on learning Swift and iOS, including Swift Playgrounds, blogs, podcasts, online courses and more.
I’ll also share my story of moving from a decades-long career in Java development to full-time mobile development, and why I chose iOS over Android as my primary platform.
