Rank #6: 103: That Tumbleweed Has a +2 WAR

Podcast cover

This week, Mark and Gordon complete their transition to Salty Old Developers™ live on air after a discussion on the state of dependency management with Xcode betas. Come for the talk about operators in Swift 3 and the exciting possibility of higher-kinded types in Swift 4 but stay for the analysis of a tumbleweed's nasty knuckle-curve.

Podcast cover

This week Mark is joined by special guest and host of Tentative, Reda Lemeden. Having a designer-slash-developer on the show allows Mark to not shut up about UIKit, best practices for bridging Swift and Objective-C frameworks, and fancy new features in iOS 10.

After claiming (incorrectly) to have fixed the audio issues in the Austin office (sorry, working on it), Jack lures Gordon into ranting about UIPageViewController. We're almost certain we recorded this episode before, but it's still horrible, so here we are. They then take a quick detour into discussing how their bodies are falling apart as they get older before chatting about Jack's journeys into game development and improvements in watchOS 3.

After taking a quick audio tour of Gordon's closet, he and Mark chat about Gordon's general imposter syndrome around UIKit, his feelings of burnout around iOS, and how he's exploring Elixir as a way to add depth to his skill set. Then they make horribly inaccurate speculations on what will happen at WWDC.

This week we had a topic planned and everything. Y'all had been asking for it and we were finally gonna do it! MVVM in practice. No bullshit. But then a heinous crime was committed that broke the monadic laws that keep our society civil and just. Tune in to hear Swift's public defender (played by Mark Adams) attempt to justify a new implementation of flatMap to Judge Dredd (played by Golden Fontenot).

Live from the Frisky Dingo, Mark and Gordon sit down to talk about the implications of new features and improvements added to Swift 2. If we're being honest, a large portion of the show is Mark pouring new-swift-error-handling fuel into the rage engine known as Gordon Fontenot. Gordon has also managed to segfault the new version of the compiler, so that's fun. Everything's fun.
