About this Episode

Welcome to Code Completion, Episode 8! We are a group of iOS developers and educators hoping to share what we love most about development, Apple technology, and completing your code on this brand new show!

Follow us @CodeCompletion on Twitter to hear about our upcoming livestreams, videos, and other content.

Today, we discuss:

  • What it’s like launching an app in 2020 compared to 2008
  • How the process of app review has changed
  • How developers are more on the hook than ever to provide their own marketing as App Store features don’t weigh as heavily as they did in the past

Also, join us for #CompleteTheCode and Compiler Error, two segments that test both your knowledge and our knowledge on Swift, Apple, and all things development!

Your hosts for this week:

Be sure to also sign up to our monthly newsletter, where we will recap the topics we discussed, reveal the answers to #CompleteTheCode, and share even more things we learned in between episodes.

You are what makes this show possible, so please be sure to share this with your friends and family who are also interested in any part of the app development process.


This week's episode of Code Completion is brought to you by Fernando and his new book: From Junior to Senior for sponsoring Code Completion. Go to today to learn more!
