Kyle’s presentation description

Motivate, operator of many of the largest bike share programs on the planet, uses iOSSnapshotTestCase for our UI testing.

There are currently snapshots of screens for iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7+ & iPhone X; in 3 languages (English, French, Spanish) for a total of 5924 snapshots and this number keeps growing.

In this talk, we will see what is so great about having UI tests. We will look at how to use iOSSnapshotTestCase to test your application. We will see how to setup tests so we can test various scenarios in an application.

Vincent’s presentation description

Refactoring a simple card view to reuse it in different context / screen, got me thinking about view decoration.

In this talk we will see different level of decorator granularity we can use to rebuild that card. And see how Swift can damage or help our API.
