Thank you to everyone who visted my blog and I really hope that you learnt something new. I am trying to keep my blog post short and having sample code what can be used instantly. But now, its time to take a look back on all the blog posts I wrote in 2019. This year I kept following my schedule of publishing a blog post every second week. This means that in this year I published 27 blog post covering wide variaty of topics from UIKit to SwiftUI, SpriteKit, VisionKit, CryptoKit, app architecture and so on. I finally managed to get noticed by iOS Dev Weekly and the issue 430 contained my post Adding custom attribute to NSAttributedString on iOS. Really happy about it!
All in all, I am very happy to see how my blog grew in 2019. Total view count grew more than 5 times compared to 2018 (started blogging in late 2017).
