iOSCon Speaker - March 2019

Presenting: 'Architecture Roadmapping: Refactor vs. Rewrite'

iOSCon & Skills Matter

iOSCon 2019 is the go-to conference to discover and learn all the latest developments in the iOS and Swift world.


Apple’s iOS development platform was released over 10 years ago. Since then, significant changes have been made to the toolset and languages surrounding iOS app development. When a development platform reaches this age it is increasingly frequent that:

  • iOS engineers will encounter ‘legacy’ iOS apps (apps where the majority of architecture was built with outdated language, APIs and toolset references).
  • When encountering such apps, the challenges of working within the constraints imposed will be greater.
  • There will be a need to evaluate the value of continuing development of such a legacy app versus alternatives such as a rewrite.
