My name is Sky Apperley and I am a freelance iOS developer living and working in Brighton and Worthing in the UK.

I started out as a front end developer, and quickly moved into mobile. I found coding for a device that you can hold in your hand very rewarding. My main language was JavaScript, and because of that I coded apps in HTML5 and cross-platform frameworks like PhoneGap and Titanium.

When Apple announced Swift in 2014 at WWDC, I knew this was the language for me to pursue next. It is very similar to Javascript, and is a modern language that tries to leave some of the annoyances of past languages out.

I spent the next year and a half learning and writing apps in Swift. I wrote a couple of my own apps, and then started to write apps for clients for iPhone and iPad.
