Hacking with Swift+ is a subscription service that delivers incredible, hands-on Swift tutorials as both video and article, so you can deepen your understanding of Swift, SwiftUI, UIKit, and more, and take your career to the next level.
HWS+ costs just $20 per month, and every article includes 4K Ultra HD video.
All articles come with 4K Ultra HD video showing the techniques, with live commentary from me so you can understand exactly how something works.
All articles also come as text as well as video so you can read if you prefer, plus copy any code you want to try, and even challenges to help you take your learning further.
Your subscription includes access to my Ultimate Portfolio App series, which is a huge course teaching you to build the ideal app to get your next Swift job.
All HWS+ articles are available only for subscribers, on topics such as advanced Swift, building custom SwiftUI components, high-performance apps, and more.
Or see below to get a free trial!
HWS+ was launched June 1st, and many all-new articles plus accompanying videos have already been posted since then including my incredible new Ultimate Portfolio App series.
But it doesn't stop there. We'll keeping adding videos to the courses, and keep adding new courses, to build this up into the ultimate toolkit for advancing your Swift knowledge.
Each of those courses have had their initial videos published, but many more will continue to come.
And more courses are on the way: debugging, testing, and of course lots more SwiftUI – I have an epic collection of tutorials coming, and I can’t wait to share them all with you.
Your Hacking with Swift+ membership gets you every subscriber-only article and video published now and in the future.
You can start your HWS+ subscription today and start watching videos immediately, then come back tomorrow and subsequent days to keep getting new content.
If you're not sure whether HWS+ is right for you, you can try a free three-day trial – no payment or credit card needed.

In this article you’ll learn how memoization can dramatically boost the performance of slow functions, and how easy Swift makes it thanks to its generics and closures.
Phantom types are a powerful way to give the Swift compiler extra information about our code so that it can stop us from making mistakes. In this article I’m going to explain how they work and why you’d want them, as well as providing lots of hands-on examples you can try.
While I’m sure you’re keen to get started programming immediately, please give me a few minutes to outline the goals of this course and explain why it’s different from other courses I’ve written.
Trees are an extraordinarily simple, extraordinarily useful data type, and in this article we’ll make a complete tree data type using Swift in just a few minutes. But rather than just stop there, we’re going to do something quite beautiful that I hope will blow your mind while teaching you something useful.
In this article I’m going to walk you through building a
WaveView with SwiftUI, allowing us to create beautiful waveform-like effects to bring your user interface to life.
In a previous article we already looked at a great way to download data using Combine, but in this article we’re going to examine the other side of the problem: uploading
Codable data. Apple’s API here is a little gnarly, so I’m going to show you how to wrap it in a neat container using generics and
String interpolation is easy, right? Wrong! String interpolation is actually a huge power feature in Swift, and we have a massive array of functionality on hand to help us customize it. In this article I’ll show you just how much control we have, and how to use that control to make your code easier to read.
If there’s one data structure they just love teaching you at school, it’s linked lists. In this article we’re going to look at why linked lists are so appealing, walk through how to build a linked list with Swift, and look at an alternative approach using enums.
Opaque return types are a powerful feature in Swift, and are also critically important for writing SwiftUI. In this article I’ll be explaining how they work, and why they give us more power than returning a simple protocol.
Previously we looked at how to create basic button styles that unify your app’s styling efficiently. In this follow-on article we’re going to explore three completely different button styles that show off just what SwiftUI is capable of: glossy marble buttons, classic fantasy buttons, and sci-fi buttons.
Anyone can write Swift code to fetch network data, but much harder is knowing how to write code to do it respectfully. In this article we’ll look at building a considerate network stack, taking into account the user’s connection, preferences, and more.
Now that we’ve covered stacks and linked lists, queues and deques ought to be easier. In this article we’ll build both data structures in just a few lines of Swift, then explore interesting additions such as
Pie charts are a classic way of showing divided data visually, and they represent interesting challenges around sizing and angles. In this article we’ll build a complete pie chart view from scratch using SwiftUI, ensuring it works using animation, and also modify it to support donut-style charts too.
Reading device motion and orientation is a fast and slightly magical way to incorporate the real world into your apps, and can do a huge amount to add a little spark of delight to your UI. In this article I’m going to show you how easy it is to control SwiftUI layouts using the accelerometer, and give you a few ideas for special effects.
If you want your app to work well on larger devices, you need to support both a sidebar and a tab bar for your primary navigation. In this video I’ll show you how to build one simple SwiftUI component that transitions between both smoothly.
Now that item editing works well, we can add a screen to edit projects. But before we can even think about that we need to add a custom section header to let users select a project to edit.
I already introduced how the internals of optionals work, including how they use conditional conformance and how to avoid infinitely sized structs. In this video I’m going to go further as we look at how our knowledge of
Optional can be translated to
Result, why it’s so important that optionals are functors and monads, and more.
Working with dates in software is hard, and if you don’t understand why then think about time zones, think about leap years, or think about how it’s the year 2563 in the Thai calendar. Apple gives us many tools for making them easier but they can be hard to discover, so in this article I’m going to try to provide some clear guidance for what to use and when.
Although apps can live in the background for quite a while, eventually they will be terminated. But when a user relaunches them, it’s a good idea to bring them roughly back to where they were, and with state restoration we can do just that.
In a previous article I showed you a smart, simple and safe way of fetching data from the internet using Combine. This article I want to look at how to handle multiple network requests safely, ensuring that both complete before you update your user interface.
How much does it cost?
Hacking with Swift+ costs $20 a month, paid monthly. Your membership includes all subscriber-only videos and articles available now and published in the future, for as long as your membership remains active. You can cancel your membership at any time, and your access will continue until your term ends.
Why is there no yearly subscription term?
At this time Hacking with Swift+ is only available as a monthly term, because it makes it easier to launch. In the future we might add an annual subscription option, and you'll be able to switch over to it.
How often are you releasing new videos?
Everything starts from zero, and Hacking with Swift+ is no different. But I'm keen to get off zero as fast as possible, which means publishing a lot of new tutorials in these early days. The pace will slow a little once the back catalog is bigger, but there will still be many new tutorials every month.
Are there exercises?
Yes! All Hacking with Swift+ articles end with challenges to help you take your learning further – code to try, problems to solve, questions to consider, and more.
Why do I need a Hacking with Swift account?
Your Hacking with Swift account links your Gumroad purchase to this site, so we can unlock your subscription. This account also allows you to post to the forums if you want to.
Does this give me all your books?
No; the articles produced for Hacking with Swift+ are all new and exclusive to subscribers. The books are separate products and will carry on receiving updates.
How can I cancel my subscription?
If at any point you want to cancel your Hacking with Swift+ subscription, you can do so directly through your Gumroad account. Your access to the subscriber-only content will remain active until your subscription term ends, at which point it will cease.
Will there be sales tax or VAT added to the price?
If you live in a country or state where tax is applied to digital purchases, that will be added to your subscription price. As you might imagine there isn't a lot I can do about that.
Will you still make free tutorials?
Yes, absolutely! I believe it's important to help everyone learn, so I will still be publishing as many free tutorials as I can. This won't be affected by Hacking with Swift+.
