I want to work with Swift

New QTdN03

I work at Microsoft. Our team uses TypeScript. It’s a fine language. But lately, I’ve developed an infatuation with the Swift programming language. I love reading the language docs. Now I just want to code in Swift every day.

Is there a Microsoft team that uses Swift? I love Microsoft too (especially our stock), and I don’t want to leave, but this urge has gotten me wanting to apply at Apple.

    Infatuations decay with time pretty quickly, just wait it out

      Oh, qt, yiu should hang out with like minded people, it’s a thing nowadays. We like spending time in echo chambers , we don’t like to hear opposing views or bring pointed to contradictions

      If you want to give a sound argument to be heard as an opposing view, you should come in with some real facts outside of “its fucked up. Niche. You get payed 1/3 what you should”. Lol

    Teach yourself iOS programming in your spare time so you can switch to iOS apps team at Microsoft or get a job at Apple or some other company.

    Msft has a bunch of iOS apps, of course they have swift developers - and entire swift teams I bet for things like iOS office.

      Maybe. But afaik even Apple don’t use Swift extensively on server side. A lot of its feature was designed to fit into the existing foundation framework, which is designed for client side applications.

      u might want to consider kotlin, it’s similar to swift and IMO it’s better for api development and offers better backward compatibility.

    Xbox has some ios apps. I've worked on a few. Reach out to the leads of the teams that build them. This is really just networking 101 shit. If you want this then go do the legwork. Post your TC, get off blind, and network.
