The Hacking with Swift advantage


There are lots of Swift-focused websites out there, and we're really proud to be part of such an exciting, thriving community. Every site does things its own way, and here's what we think makes Hacking with Swift special:

  • We reach huge audiences on the web, on YouTube, and by newsletter, helping get your message out to the broadest range of developers.
  • We believe in building our community – we sponsor diversity tickets at conferences, run community mentoring programs, and have raised over $100,000 for charity.
  • We have organic search authority – hundreds of our pages are ranked #1 by Google because users trust the brand and click through to our articles.
  • We constantly update old articles to reflect new syntax and API because Swift changes quickly, which means readers know everything they read here is still valid today.
  • We run the independent Swift Community Awards where tens of thousands of users vote for their favorite tools and projects every year.
  • Our site is delivered from a worldwide CDN spanning 200 cities in more than 90 countries, ensuring our pages load lightning fast from Hawaii to Tokyo and beyond.

We work to make sure your advert looks as good as it can, so we'll help you write your advert to maximize engagement. You can also provide light and dark versions of your logo to make sure it adapts to visitors' system settings, customize the text on the action button, and more.

We're also proud to promote other amazing Swift websites out there – you should check out sponsoring Antoine van der Lee and John Sundell.
