A blog about the Swift language. Rarely about iOS or OS X programming.

Advanced Swift, Chris Eidhof and my book, is now available in preview.

What do you mean, African or European Swift?
Watching this may explain. I was pretty surprised airspeedvelocity.net was available.

Who are you? Why is your blog anonymous?
I’m the person who writes this blog! Read it if you like reading it. The voice is consistent and the code verifiable. Does the author’s identity matter?

The reason I blog under a pseudonym is not an exciting one. I don’t work for Mi5 or anything. I just prefer it.

The Epicurean Dealmaker puts the case for pseudonymity far more eloquently than me, here and here.

Watch this for a dramatization of what it would be like to find out my actual identity.
