Oh man have I been down this road before, starting my site and blog I mean. This time it's gonna stick, I can feel it.

I've been working on reimplementing JVFloatingDrawer in Swift. The new project is called KGFloatingDrawer, and works as closely as possible to JVFloatingDrawer as I could manage in a short time. I will make efforts to ensure that any changes to the original project are reimplemented in this new one. This should allow developers who are familiar with either, a flat learning curve if they choose to use the other in a new project with the alternate language.

Thanks to the brilliant work of a colleague of mine and his generous permission to wholesale copy the logic into Swift I now have the most popular project hosted on GitHub that I have yet written. As of writing this it's amassed 125 stars!

For those interested in using the project it can be installed as a Cocoapod. A quick note of caution; KGFloatingDrawer uses a beta version of Swift (1.2) and until XCode 6.3 is released it can't be used in a project. It will be interesting to see if there is a bump in popularity for the project once the new version of XCode is released and the AppStore starts accepting apps using Swift 1.2. My fingers are crossed.

The point of this blog will be to relay any interesting tidbits I stumble upon regarding software development with a focus on iPhone and iPad development. I also plan to post some tutorials that relate to real world challenges that I run into while developing for iOS. Where possible I'll focus on Swift, however I'm sure that some Objective-C will creep in from some older projects. Generally the quality should be better than this post, which is more of a feet wetting exercise.

What an exciting few weeks it has been. Within a month I've been to RWDevCon, written a popular github project, and started this blog. It feels good to be at it again.
