Why I Like iOS Development
I realized the other day why I think I like iOS development so much. It cuts down on the number of decisions I have to make. For me, that’s huge.
The happy path just makes my life easier. It’s pretty easy to land on Swift, Xcode, and SwiftUI. It’s also made easier because I actually like writing Swift code.
It may be silly, but these are literally the questions that keep me up at night. As you might be able to guess, I struggle to make decisions. If I’m going to invest in something, I want it to make the best decision I can. But with limited time to explore and experiment, I don’t want to waste time going down a wrong path.
So that’s one of the main reasons I like iOS development. A huge number of questions are just immediately answered for me. I just open Xcode and go. I haven’t reached that point in web development—which is a bit funny because that’s my job. But, a lot of my next ideas are going to require more than just an iOS app. They are going to need backend components too. So I feel ticking clock or an impending doom on figuring some of this stuff out.
