Okay I usually like Swift, but why did they have to make parsing JSON such a pain in the ass?? You have to loop through every child collection and should give up the type that it should be. Obviously you could work around this by writing some sort of wrapper but if I want to do a simple request to an API it results it so much unnecessary code.

    Yeah, compared to how simple it was in Obj-C, Swift really takes a step backwards sometimes.

    For a language that was originally invented because Obj-C was too complicated, I don't think they're doing a great job…
