Pledge

Starting this Easter weekend, I want to express my gratitude to developers and content creators on an ongoing basis.

  • Every month for (at least) a year, I will contribute $10 to Swift/iOS developers or content creators of my choice.
  • I will try to split the amount between two people each month by leveraging programs like Buy Me a Coffee, Patreon, GitHub sponsorship, or other means.

Please contact me on Twitter (@MarcoEidinger) and give suggestions.

Motivation

This Easter (2022), I flew from California to Germany to visit my mom. I used the time in the airplane to reflect on recent activities in my life.

Not long ago, I started contributing to the Swift and iOS community by writing blog posts and sharing my knowledge. Also, I started actively engaging with people on Twitter and am really enjoying it. I might not have started this path without the inspiration of excellent developers and content creators from whom I learn daily. Often those people share their time, knowledge, work, and help on the side without any financial support.

I will continuously update this blog post monthly to write down my contributions. I hope for two positive effects:

  • You might find new developers and content creators from you can learn.
  • Writing about my contributions keeps me accountable and helps me to follow through every month with my promise :)

  • Sarah Reichelt is the author of "macOS by Tutorials", a book including a series of epic-length tutorials where you'll learn to build four complete native macOS apps. I highly recommend her articles published on her blog if you are into SwiftUI development on the Mac.

  • Nil Coalescing consists of Natalia Panferova and Matthaus Woolard. They build applications for Apple platforms and try to share as much knowledge as possible with the developer community. They regularly post detailed articles and shorter tips. Super helpful and insightful.

  • Federico Zanetello is an avid blogger and writes top-notch SwiftUI articles on his blog Five Stars. You probably know another project of his, WWDC Notes! WWDC Notes is an open-source and community-driven effort to collect notes for all Apple's WWDC videos. The articles are quick recaps and can act as a time-saver since watching all WWDC videos takes hundreds of hours. Screen Shot 2022-06-01 at 6.23.39 AM.png
  • Marina Gornostaeva curates the  iOS Code Review, a bi-weekly newsletter amplifying code improvement tips from the Apple developer community covering Swift, Objective-C, iOS, macOS, SwiftUI, UIKit and more. She is also blogging infrequently and her latest post Fixing SwiftUI's Automatic Preview Updating Paused was super helpful. If you are in Denmark, you might know her because she is the co-organizer of Copenhagen Cocoa. Screen Shot 2022-06-01 at 6.23.19 AM.png
  • Leonardo Pugliese writes excellent articles on his blog HolySwift. Recently I am enjoying his article series How to Start iOS Development Career although I have been developing iOS apps and frameworks for ten years. You not only learn about Swift and iOS development but also about fine art. Every article introduces a new painting :) Screen Shot 2022-06-01 at 6.23.10 AM.png
  • The folks behind #iOSDevHappyHour do a tremendous job. Their goal is to allow current and aspiring iOS Developers a place to share experiences, share knowledge, hang out, build community, and even enjoy a drink or two online when face-to-face contact is limited. I am looking forward to their IRL event in the Bay Area this month!! Screen Shot 2022-06-01 at 6.24.02 AM.png
