I wish to assume I’ve helped with this a little bit already by linking largely to community-written weblog posts on this publication for greater than twelve years and by constructing and sustaining the iOS Dev Listing for the final six. What began as an try to discover new voices on this group has grown from my seed checklist of some hundred blogs to greater than a thousand right now in eleven languages, contributed by a whole bunch of group members. Is your web site lacking? Please add it.
To proceed this, I’d love to supply some free and one-to-one mentorship to members of this group inquisitive about writing publicly about Swift, Apple platform improvement, app design, advertising, operating an app enterprise, or every other subjects on this space.
