Advanced Topics in Swift & Objective-C Generics

Generics have finally found their way into the world of iOS with Swift and, with Xcode 7, Objective-C. In this talk, we will cover the basics of generics and how best to use them in our codebases to create better, reusable code. We will also touch on the differences between generics in Swift and Objective-C, how to successfully interop between the two, and how to take them to the next level in Swift protocols.

Text Accessibility and Design Accessibility

Making everything accessible is important for our users and developers. We will share our work ensuring great text accessibility and readability in our apps and how you can do the same. On top of that, we'll reveal some of the processes, tools and code we build to make design more accessible to our developers.
