At the beginning of 2019 I set myself the monumental task of getting involved with the Swift compiler project. Given my humble background, this was going to be tough to say the least. However after getting involved with releasing my own iOS course and working with Ray Wenderlich a lot of my time has been devoted to learning and producing content to teach others. This was a welcomed diversion: I’ve been able to collaborate with some of the best developers in the world and what an absolute joy that has been!
After what is most definitely the most intense few years of my life, I am now managing to get more time in to focus on some of those goals.
If I’m being honest, I absolutely love the more lower-level work. There’s something joyous about it and I don’t know what it is preciesly. Swift gives us blistering speeds at a high level, but to even begin to get started with compilers my C++ is going to need to get back in action.
I’m going to start a series on C++ for those interested in taking the plunge and document my journey as I began to grapple with compilers. Come along for the ride!
