Planning Project Migrations to Swift

Stephen Tramer, AOLPart of DW16

As Swift becomes a more powerful and refined language, and Objective-C code begins to show its age, developers should be planning to perform code base migrations over to the new language. This talk covers the practical aspects of creating and then implementing just such a plan, and topics will include such aspects as designing cross-language compatible APIs, writing glue code, where to begin the rewrite in a source base, and type compatibility issues.
