Fuck swift and xcode and IOS development

Because every fucking guide and tutorial and code example out there is already outdated including some from last month

Because every relevant pod out there change their specs more often than I change my socks

Because you have to do every fucking thing on your own

Because you have to catch 812375 things that can possibly go wrong

Because making a simple JSON request takes 5 screens of code

Because of the five fucking million typing errors you get every damn minute fuck you swift

Because of the 150 page API docs for the simplest fucking things

Because of all the code lost to xcode crashes every couple minutes

Because Apple promised a language and a framework that allows for rapid hassle-free development yet this is exactly the opposite

Because all the money we're paying for all this shit when it's not worth even 1% of it

    the company I work at was developing smartphone apps for a Very Large Client. Android releases were progressing nicely but iOS releases were having troubles, and at the critical stage of end to end testing for final validation the iOS app was not delivered. Dev team couldn't get the certificates to work and sign the app. We were approaching deadlines and the QA lead sent me to the dev building not to come back unless it was with a working app that could go through testing. Once I got to the dev building things went sour. They were considering not releasing for iOS and were in talks with consulting to devise a strategy to massage the client. While that was going on, a greybeard I knew was passing through and asked me what I was doing there. He told me "ah, yes" and borrowed another dev's mac. He booted xcode, refreshed several fields on the signing dialog twice and then hit the button. Turns out there was a longstanding bug with signing apps with certificates on xcode.
