David on Functional JSON

David Owens writes about functional JSON.

I didn’t understand the article. I’m sure I’d get it on a second, much-more-careful read.

But this goes to a growing realization that Swift is complex — more so than Objective-C — and it’s going to take a while to learn it well.

That’s not a criticism, by the way. I expect I’ll value the things I don’t get yet, and it won’t be long before I’ll wonder how I got by without them.

I’m not the only one realizing this. Collin Donnell on Twitter:

I originally thought I got Swift pretty quickly. I now think it might be a good while before I’m fully comfortable.
