A few weeks ago I started my journey to become an expert in SwiftUI, you can read about it here.

I am a Javascript developer so many “programming” concepts are quite easy to pick up, however, when I started getting into SwiftUI I felt a feeling of joy and excitement to what concerns building UIs with a completely different approach.

Every day that I spend learning this framework I feel more and more enthusiastic about it.

Today, I am going to list 3 Random Reasons to join me in loving this new fantastic way of building iOS native apps, and…

Here I am with another episode of My 100 Days of SwiftUI journey.

Here I am, writing my first blog post ever.

I will write a journal about switching from web and front-end development to iOS development sharing the topics and my learning process, as well as my understanding and point of view.

Why am I doing this? Why would one start to blog?
I googled and searched for this as well and tons of answers came up:

  • Fame or creating a personal brand
