How does curiosity apply to iOS developers?

Recorded – watch the full episode on YouTube.

Our platform is always changing thanks to annual WWDC events, and our industry is constantly changing too. So how does starting with curiosity apply to developers?

Ish Shabazz: Honestly, I think being curious keeps you on your toes and keeps you engaged in the new thing and helps you to predict the future. There are some folks who are really happy with I've learned a thing, I understand this thing, I'm done. I don't need to learn new things. But it's not true because the world moves whether you do or not. So it's important to stay engaged and try new things. Is SwiftUI ready for production? There's really only one way to find out. Honestly, you go in and you start playing with it and you try it and you see what parts work and don't work for you and then engage with other people about it.

Don't just sit back and wait for everything to mature to the point where you're like, "Okay, now is my time." If you have the time to engage in things like this, I think it's important to always approach it like if I was starting today, what would I do and why? Just to kind of get a different perspective on it. I also think it's good, being a seasoned developer, to stay in constant communication with junior developers who are just starting, because the perspective is different. And that broader perspective is always helpful.
