I agree with Nathan Gitter that the Designing Fluid Interfaces presentation from WWDC this year was outstanding. It was focused on concepts and design rather than implementation though. What if someone had put together the examples used in the talk into a project that was available on GitHub? Thanks Nathan!
After talking about stack views inside scroll views last week, Maciej Trybiło was kind enough to let me know about ScrollingStackViewController which packages the same technique up into a library. Just subclass
ScrollingStackViewController and add your child view controllers. 👍
I feel like the days of truly massive application delegates are thankfully behind us, but that doesn't you won't find them becoming a bit of a dumping ground if not watched carefully. We'll all be familiar with that code that started as "Oh this is just one line of code in
didFinishLaunching" that ultimately grew to become much bigger. Vadim Bulavin has some techniques to help you keep it under control.
Firebase seems to be taking over the world a bit, but before you commit to it for your next project read Andrew Bancroft's case for CloudKit. I still think if you're building something truly serious then rolling your own back end is probably the way to go, but I do like CloudKit too.
