Women in iOS@Amex: Background Upload w URLSession & Design Patterns in Swift
Nicole Lehrer, iOS Engineer @Vimeo Van, iOS Engineer @Vimeo Background Upload with URLSession: Limitations and Lessons Learned Apple provides API for developers to be able to upload videos in the background, so file transfer can continue even when your app is no longer in memory. With this advantage comes some limitations, especially when trying to implement additional features like upload resumability and uploading via a share extension. In this talk, we’ll give an overview of what’s required to upload in the background and then share some lessons learned along the way. Bio: Nicole is a senior iOS engineer at Vimeo, where she enjoys watching artsy videos in between coding. She joined the Mobile and TV team about two and a half years ago following her graduate studies in interactive stroke rehabilitation. Nicole lives in NYC and likes to cook and paint in her free time. Van is currently an iOS engineer at Vimeo working on features that empower creators of all kinds. Before joining Vimeo, he mainly worked within the Philadelphia area. Outside of work, he is passionate about any music-related subject such as audio signal processing, music information retrieval, and music history. He is also learning how to play piano. Van is now living in NYC where he loves getting lost in Central Park. * * * * * * * * * * * Jay Strawn, Senior iOS Developer, co-host of the Podcast Exploring More Design Patterns in Swift Join us as Jay Strawn dives into some design patterns that are a little more specialized than the standard MVC and MVVM. If you want to spend more time writing code than fixing bugs or trying to remember how your project is laid out, design patterns are a must!

What we're about

iOSoho is New York City's largest iOS Engineer Meetup. We're best known for our terrific technical talks, and our restrictive admission policy of admitting only active iOS Engineers, designers, and product people (actually, any engineer with 1+ year of commercial or open-source experience and a passion for mobile is welcome.)

Every month, we visit the office of a different top employer in New York City. The program is 2 expert speakers each month presenting 20-minute technical talks on what they're working on, with 10 minutes of Q&A each. The rest of the time is for pizza, beer, and hanging out.

We've had super-interesting talks from: Facebook, Google, Yahoo!, Spotify, Foursquare, Tumblr, Thrillist, CocoaPods, Ladders, and more.

You should join if you’re actively involved in the development of mobile technology and you want to learn, meet, and share with others in the space. We'd love to have you as part of our 2,100+ community!

iOSoho (EYE-oh-SO-ho) is a group for engineers seriously interested in mobile. We only accept active engineers, and serious product and design professionals working in mobile. We do not accept business people, "entrepreneurs", marketing, recruiting, "seeking co-founders", or casually interested professionals from other fields. Due to space constraints, as of January 2016, we no longer accept students at code academies, bootcamps, or training programs. Students pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science, Engineering, or related degree will be admitted based on demonstrated aptitude.

Basically, if you're not a “fingers on the keyboard” engineer, product person, or designer, this is not the right Meetup for you.

We're very sorry, but in order to keep our Meetup audience, and interactions, at a very technical level, there are no exceptions to these rules.

Finally, due to security requirements at our host buildings for our events, we require your actual first name and last name, as it appears on your ID, on your Meetup account.
