64: Brandon Williams - Creator of PointFree.co & Former Kickstarter Mobile Engineering Lead

September 20, 2017

Brandon Williams is an independant mobile consultant living in New York. He was the former mobile engineering lead at Kickstarter for 5.5 years where he created Kickstarter 1.0 for iOS, lead the 1.0 for Android, and successfully open sourced both projects just this past December. What's most exciting is that he recently announced Point-Free, a weekly video series about Swift and Functional Programming. But that's not all, Point-Free is entirely built using Swift (HTML!!!, CSS!!!, and Server all in Swift!!!), and its all open source. Sign up to be notified when they launch. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did. This really is going to be the best season yet.

Removing Patreon Rewards

I am removing all Patreon rewards. I'm sorry. I can't keep up with it as I am already doing so much. Feel free to cancel, no hard feelings at all. Let me know if you want your money back. If you can come up with an interesting reward, perhaps I can make it happen.
