Michail Churbanov, Senior designer at MERA, was among the few IT specialists from Russia invited to GDG DevFest Gorky 2018 as speakers. In his presentation called “Why to use Design-first and Server-side Swift, if everything works anyway?” he will share «the devil is in the details»-story of the symbiotic relationship between the design-first approach using OpenAPI and the Swift backend. The examples given in the presentation will demonstrate how this coexistence can help mitigate different daily issues and benefit in the overall experience of iOS development (For more details see the schedule).
