I always loved creating apps and making things, and I still do. But while I worked on optimising my code and learning modern development techniques, I was always curious about what happens when you press that Build button in Xcode. What's going on behind the curtain? How does that turn your code into an app. I was fascinated by this, however, I never satisfied this curiosity until I jumped in the deep end, and started working as a mobile infrastructure engineer at Spotify. I want to demystify the build process, explain build systems, and share my knowledge to help people form a solid foundation to build their infrastructure knowledge on.
