At age 14 I found interest in game development interacting with a game engine called Game Salad. I choose the “dive-in head first” approach and explored a little bit of everything.

Working on a project today, I ran into a solution that would be good to share with IOS Developers. That is using a swift tool .firstIndex(of: String) to find or replace an indexed string in your array. In my case this was used for error handling!

I have an array setup called var testSlice: [String] = [] which is the final form of var items: [String] = []. The items array is holding strings that represent profilePic id’s that get used in a method later on in the class file.
