The introduction of Swift pushed Objective-C into this weird state of still being the most popular language for iOS development, but one that is becoming less and less relevant with each passing day. Since Obj-C is not yet obsolete, we figured it’s a good time to talk about our technical interview process and what we expect from the candidates.
I’ve been a software developer all my life, but one day around two years ago I switched places with our CEO and traded Xcode and vim for Google Spreadsheets and Apple Mail.
Before I joined the light side of the force and started working with Apple devices, I was a .NET developer. Most of us have prior experiences with other platforms and languages and there’s always an argument – whether we should take this new platform as it is or try to adapt it and morph it to what we already know. In my opinion it’s more a question of “how much” rather than “if”.
