This month, the great Klaas Pieter Annema (@klaaspieter (https://twitter.com/klaaspieter)) will present "The Grass Is Greener On The Dark Side", a talk about incorporating best practices from other programming languages and frameworks in our code.

Too often, we think that our problems are unique to our own situations. The reality is that, for most problems we face, someone has already dealt with those same problems. In some cases, issues that we all face in Objective-C have been solved in other languages.

Klaas Pieter will give examples of some common problems in Objective-C that we either haven't realized are problems yet, or currently tend to write our own solutions for, and share examples of how other languages have approached these problems. He'll talk about how to apply their learnings into our Objective-C code, and how to incorporate them immediately into our day-to-day work.
