How we Vapor-ised our Mac app


This talk will cover the pros, cons and gotchas of using existing codebases as a springboard for developing a new web service. We will discuss how you can take mature, battle-tested code from a macOS app and use it as the basis for a web service using the popular server-side Swift framework, Vapor.
