Swift as Light – Jon-Tait Beason

The Glowforge 3D Laser Printer creates beautiful things out of wood, leather, acrylic and more. By leveraging Core Graphics and other iOS APIs, our app allows users to create and manipulate vector graphics which they can send to their Glowforge. In this talk, we will review how we built some of these features in Swift and how Swift helps to make our solutions more robust, elegant and safe.
