Navigating the Sea of iOS Knowledge 🌊

Updated: Jul 11

For the past few months, I've been diligently keeping a list of all the things I want to learn and implement in iOS development. Every day, I learn something new and put it into practice. Yet, the more I learn, the more I realize how much I still don't know. My list of topics keeps growing, even as I check off items I’ve implemented. To give you an idea, here’s a sample of what's on my list:


  • WWDC videos from this and previous years

  • Online conference recordings

  • Books

  • Point-Free channel

  • Obj-C channel

  • Open source repos

  • Various dev tools

  • Blogs

  • Podcasts


I don't know how it is for you folks, but I am personally overwhelmed.


I’ve asked several amazing senior devs for advice on how to prioritize learning, and the most common response is: "I just go with the flow and dive into what interests me."


I don't feel comfortable with that. Who's to say that what interests me is the right thing to focus on?


One of the people I approached with the learning prioritization question was Aviel Gross (iOS lead at a large and successful company, with a great track record and excellent soft skills). He was more comfortable then others to offer directions and give concrete advice. So, I had an epiphany! 💡 With his consent, I nominated him to be my iOS learning tech lead. Together, we'll go over my learning backlog, and he'll prioritize items based on his experience. I will be relying on his guidance today so that I can become the best iOS craftswoman in the future.
