In-depth conversations about Swift and software development in general, hosted by John Sundell.
104: “The magic of Augmented Reality”, with special guest Roxana Jula
Roxana Jula joins John to discuss Apple’s various tools, frameworks, and APIs for building Augmented Reality experiences. How to get started building AR-based apps, what’s the current state of AR on Apple’s platforms, and how might that change if Apple were to introduce dedicated AR hardware in the future?
103: “What’s new in Swift 5.5”, with special guest Antoine van der Lee
Antoine van der Lee, creator of SwiftLee, joins John to discuss the new language features that are being introduced as part of Swift 5.5 — from the brand new concurrency system, to convenience features and various improvements.
102: “WWDC21, two months later”, with special guest Jordan Morgan
Jordan Morgan returns to the show to discuss some of the key new APIs and frameworks that were announced at WWDC21, and how they can be integrated into the apps that we build, now that about two months have passed since the conference took place.
101: “Cross-platform SwiftUI”, with special guest Malin Sundberg
Malin Sundberg joins John to talk about her experiences of using SwiftUI to build and ship the time-tracking and invoicing app Orbit on most of Apple’s platforms, and what sort of things that can be good to keep in mind when using SwiftUI in a cross-platform context.
100: “A tower of capabilities”, with special guest Chris Lattner
Chris Lattner returns to the show to discuss Swift’s new concurrency features, the ongoing evolution of the language, and the importance of both language and API design. This, and much more, on this special 100th episode of the show.
99: “Structured concurrency”, with special guest Doug Gregor
Doug Gregor from Apple joins John to discuss Swift 5.5’s new concurrency features in great detail. How do features like async/await and actors work under the hood, and how were those concepts adapted in order to feel right at home within Swift’s existing ecosystem? That, and much more, on this WWDC21 special episode of the show.
