Discussion on: Web developers: with SwiftUI, would you consider learning Swift?

I'm primarily a web developer and been itching to learn another language. Swift has looked appealing for quite some time, but WWDC 19 convinced me to finally drop everything and start learning it.

I spent an evening watching talks and messing around with SwiftUI and Combine. It has prompted me to try and prototype a MacOS app I have wanted to build for some time. I may write a post about it.

Honestly, its kinda a tough sell for existing app developers. SwiftUI will only work in Catalina and above so managing compatibility between versions would be nightmarish I think without a solid migration strategy.
