Are you interested in controlling the flow of your iOS apps with Storyboards? Can't quite get your head around the new Messages framework? Then join this month's Swift London Meetup with Paul Stringer and Sam Piggott!
Cofounder and engineer at Buddybuild
Storyboards are a powerful tool for controlling the flow of your iOS app through configuration not code. In theory, This approach allows a clean separation of flow and presentation which gives us greater flexibility to change things as we go.
The reality, though, is that view controller code typically ends up deeply entwined in the telling of our storyboard's own story, leading to inflexible and often duplicated code to support an approach which may leave many experienced developers wondering, "Is this worth it?".
In this session we revisit Storyboards, exploring a powerful approach to maintaining the separation of storyboard and view controller that fulfils the promise of flexibility and less code. We'll learn how Storyboards can become a more compelling tool, one that can be at the very heart of the clean architecture of your app
Paul is an iOS expert combining skills in mobile product design with extensive software engineering experience. An influencer and leader having worked with development teams, key stakeholders and corporate clients incl. Apple and Sky. After years masquerading as a professional developer, Paul discovered 'Clean Code' and began a journey to a new understanding of what being a software professional meant. That journey continues through working with best practices such as TDD, Acceptance Testing and Pair Programming "as standard" in the pursuit of building the best possible software; Paul believes in the principle of getting software right early, and then keeping it working as intended.
Sam will be highlighting the potential (and the pitfalls) of the shiny new Messages framework. It's not just cat stickers, no no!
