Swift ThoughtsSwift Thoughts

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at the Swift Warsaw Meetup. It was amazing to see an example from @_siejkowski on how to build a Swift Slackbot using Zewo, which I never heard of before, but seems to have some great advantages!

One thing that I keep hearing about server-side Swift is "oh, another framework!". This is a reminder that having A LOT of server-side Swift frameworks this early is NOT a bad thing. In fact, it's a good thing!

Swift, and especially server-side Swift, is super new, so it's good for us as a community to experiment with different implementations of how it should work. Some (ok, most likely only 2 or 3) will win, most will lose, but they will all eventually share ideas between each other and hopefully contribute to the best possible solution.

So go ahead, build another server-side Swift framework!
