Sam Piggott

Sam will be highlighting the potential (and the pitfalls) of the shiny new Messages framework. It's not just cat stickers, no no!

Paul Stringer (

Storyboards are a powerful tool for controlling the flow of your iOS app through configuration not code. In theory, This approach allows a clean separation of flow and presentation which gives us greater flexibility to change things as we go.

The reality, though, is that view controller code typically ends up deeply entwined in the telling of our storyboard's own story, leading to inflexible and often duplicated code to support an approach which may leave many experienced developers wondering, "Is this worth it?".

In this session we revisit Storyboards, exploring a powerful approach to maintaining the separation of storyboard and view controller that fulfils the promise of flexibility and less code. We'll learn how Storyboards can become a more compelling tool, one that can be at the very heart of the clean architecture of your app.
