Me and the unofficial CTO (3rd party's CTO) are interviewing an ios dev. (I'm an android dev, btw)

CTO: In your view, would you find developing an ios app would be faster or at the same speed as an android dev?

Me: *shock*

Canidate: I've never developed on Android before, but I'd think it would be the same speed. We both need to make screens, views, and type code.

    Slower. HIG amongst other guidelines will fuck you in the ass with iOS dev submission but Play store will accept any dogshit.

    @Wabby, I think he meant more on raw development of features.

    I'm currently the only dev on the team, and without seeing the code, they think I'm slacking til I give a presentation of the current app state.

    We finally did hire an ios dev, he's missed 2 sprints (so far) in the attempt to catch up with me in a quicker time. "android had 1 month to do those features, I'm sure the ios can do it in 1 week. It's SIMPLER, right?"

    @f7u12 "candidate", :-/. I'm a phonetic speller and coding has replaced my mother tongue (which was English).
