Practical Protocols with Associated Types in Swift

Abstract : Apple has called Swift a "Protocol-Oriented Language". But, to take protocols to the next level, Swift offers protocols with associated types! Yet, protocols with associated types can be confusing and not quite work as expected. Learn what Protocols with Associated Types are, how to use them in practical everyday scenarios to write cleaner Swift / iOS code, their current limitations, and their future in Swift.

Bio: Natasha is an iOS developer by day and a robot by night. She blogs about Swift, watchOS, and iOS development on her blog, natashatherobot.com (https://www.natashatherobot.com/), curates a fast-growing weekly Swift newsletter, This Week in Swift (https://swiftnews.curated.co/), and organizes the try!

Thinking in Swift

Abstract : Swift, like Objective-C, is a language which you can use to write iOS (Apple) apps. This talk is about how its just not a syntax change when compared to Objective-C but rather a whole mindset change. Solving a problem in Swift could be a lot different from solving it in Objective C. We should leverage the power of Protocols, Enums, Associated types/values, Extensions, Computed vars, Generics, etc in order to write better or I should say Swifty iOS apps! If you have been coding in Objective C and want to switch to Swift or even if you have just started to make iOS apps, come join us to the journey of becoming a Swifty developer!

Swift for lazy iOS Developers

Abstract : Swift a magical and a beloved language with a consistent rising curve of open source contributions, Apple finally decided to go open source few years back with this freshly brewed programming language. It created a strong/enthusiastic community of developers helping/saving each other’s precious time in a fun way i.e. while enjoying writing code in swift with passion to even convert or re-define existing popular Open Source Objective-C based libraries in a better and efficient way while utilizing the real power of the language everyone is so excited about. It’s just not me, It’s the analytics from our trusted community GitHub.

This is about how easy it has become these days to achieve more features/user stories completion in less time with less development efforts while getting an opportunity to learn from the best developers in the world. It’s more about how we can show our respect and care for the contributors and contribute back to our community who cared for us and made our lives easier. Let’s try the 3rd party libraries in our applications for achieving beautifully crafted iOS applications, All the lazy developers in the house say Try-Swift!
