It is with a great deal of pride that I’d like to present to you the Grand Central Board, the latest Open Source project that we have started here at Macoscope.
Seeing that this is my first post on this blog, I should probably introduce myself, maybe even show off a little bit. Some of you may even know me already, because one of my previous Open Source projects, Design Patterns In Swift, gained real traction in the community and, with over 5000 stars, gave me quite the reputation in worldwide Swift rankings on GitHub Awards.
But now let me tell you the story of how this new project came to life.
