Do you know what happens between the moment you press CMD+R and the app shows up on device? There are multiple steps included, one of which is called SIL - but what is it? Let’s take a quick journey down the rabbit hole and see how looking at SIL can help us understand some weird edge cases in code!

I'm currently working @ Flightradar24 as an iOS Software Engineer. I've been doing iOS stuff for around 10 years and can't get enough of it - there is always something interesting to look into and dive deep into different topics. Recently I've found great interest in exploring tricky parts of Swift, sometimes even peeking into SIL to understand them. I've also reached a point in my journey where I feel confident and comfortable sharing my knowledge with wider audiences and decided to start giving back to the fantastic iOS community.

If I'm not currently coding I'm most likely goofing around with my kids, playing video and board games, or just being a couch potato devouring next TV series from a (too long) list.
