A SkillsCast for this session is not available.
By themselves, value types, protocols, and functional programming are all useful tools in any Swift developers toolbox, but when their powers combine they can help you write smarter, simpler, *safer* code.
In this talk you'll learn why Swift relies so heavily on value types and why it matters in practice. You'll then move on to protocol-oriented programming, and Paul will demonstrate how it helps you re-architect your code to be flatter and more composable. Finally, you'll get a lightning fast introduction to functional programming, and how tools like flat map and reduce can help make your code clearer and simpler.
Those three are all useful to know by themselves, but the real magic comes when they are used together, so once you understand the basic components you'll learn how to put them together so you can write natural, idiomatic Swift.
Please note: You will need to have Xcode 8.2. prior to attending this workshop.
