Update: We got a seed of an Xcode 10.2 today (January 24, 2018) – so no conspiracy. Perhaps a holiday break? It was fun to write all this down at least. As an iOS developer I’m used to change. We get new apis every June, new betas of iOS and Xcode every few weeks. Our […]
I still remember being at a WWDC Stump The Experts session where one of the first questions was what were the names of the songs playing before things kicked off, and a developer from Shazam stood up, and rattled all of them off. There was a roar from the crowd, and he said he was […]

The intent here is not a tutorial on how to write web views […]

At Intuit we work in 2 week sprints. Last sprint I decided to take a story about a crash happening in an image downloader class. After looking at it for a bit, I decided it would be a great candidate to rewrite using dispatch groups, and also in Swift. (It’s an internal goal to rewrite […]
I’ve been attempting to, in my spare time, do more Swift development. The hardest thing for me so far is struggling knowing that I could do something in two minutes than in Swift takes me 20-30 minutes to search for and explore an answer and get the code in the correct format. It would be […]
