About Oscar Swanros

Oscar Swanros, portrait

My name is Oscar Swanros, a Sr. iOS Developer in Mexico. I’m currently working with the iOS Engineering Team at PSPDFKit, where we create the most advanced PDF framework for iOS, Android and the Web. I love to write iOS apps, design UIs, listen to good music — sometimes all three at the same time.

Here’s a brief overview of who I am:

  • I’m 25 years old and have been doing iOS development for the past 7 years.
  • Objective-C, Objective-C++, and Swift are the programming languages I use every day to do my job.
  • Doing web development is something I’ve been interested in but haven’t been able to deep dive into.
  • Functional programming caught my eye when Swift first came out, and decided to explore it a bit.
  • Ultimately, I discovered Elixir and stuck with it; have been using it for simple projects for about 3 years, mainly with the Phoenix framework.
  • I’ve been working remotely for the past 6 years, and the ability to do so is primal for me to even consider a job offer.
  • Speaking at conferences/meetups, dogs, teaching, and music are my passions.
