Thinking about SwiftUI

Last week I decided to spend the weekend learning about SwiftUI. The weekend turned into an entire week but I was eventually able to learn everything I set out to learn. This course on Udemy was particularly helpful.

I’m going to take a long weekend to give myself time to reflect on what I have learned so far. One thing I want to think about is if I should use SwiftUI for my app. The app I’m working on is simple enough and SwiftUI can do almost everything I need. There are a few areas where I may have to drop out to UIKit but for the most part I think I can make it work. Importantly, I think I may be able to make a better user experience with SwiftUI than I can with UIKit. So many things in UIKit require more code and complexity and if I stay on that route it may be several months before my app meets the expectations that I have for it.

I guess I have a lot to think about this weekend.
