In-depth conversations about Swift and software development in general, hosted by John Sundell.
96: “Gesture-driven animations”, with special guest Adam Bell
Adam Bell returns to the show to talk about animations, both how to make great use of the built-in animation tools that the iOS SDK ships with, but also how to drive custom, gesture-driven animation logic and the sort of performance optimizations that are typically required when writing that sort of code.
95: “Concurrency orchestration”, with special guest Brent Simmons
Brent Simmons returns to the show to discuss multi-threading and concurrency, and how to make good use of tools like Grand Central Dispatch. Also, building NetNewsWire in the open, the current state of SwiftUI, and the type of responsibilities that senior developers typically have.
94: “A Mac-like Mac app”, with special guest Benedikt Terhechte
Benedikt Terhechte returns to the show to discuss the pros and cons of using technologies like Catalyst and SwiftUI to build Mac apps, and also to share tips and tricks on how to use AppKit for use cases that Apple’s more modern frameworks do not yet support.
93: “Combine and Core Data”, with special guest Donny Wals
Donny Wals, book author and iOS developer at Disney Streaming Services, joins John to give practical tips on Combine and Core Data. How to manage and test increasingly complex Combine pipelines, and how come the opinions on Core Data are so divisive? Also, working on internal SDKs and frameworks, and taking a pragmatic approach to unit testing.
92: “All of our wildest Swift dreams”, with special guest Kaitlin Mahar
Kaitlin Mahar, lead engineer at MongoDB and member of the Swift Server Work Group, joins John to discuss the current state of server-side Swift, designing APIs for server-side libraries, and Swift’s upcoming suite of structured concurrency features.
91: “Is SwiftUI ready for production?”, with special guest David Smith
David Smith, creator of apps like Widgetsmith, returns to the show to discuss whether SwiftUI is currently capable and stable enough to build production-level apps, and what sort of things that can be good to keep in mind when starting to deploy SwiftUI in production.
To all iOS devs
Definitely do yourself a favor and listen to this. I really learn a lot of things so far. I wish John could squeeze in more time and make this weekly instead of biweekly. Hehe.. thumb up for the amazing work!
Best podcast about iOS and Swift
This is my favorite podcast. I look forward to every episode that comes out and get very exited when I see a new one pop up.
If you are interested in iOS/Swift at all, you should be listening to Swift by Sundell.
Thanks for the great podcast and the awesome guest
