A quick list of overlooked announcements at WWDC'16

Ok, so sadly I wasn’t at WWDC this year 😒 and followed it only on video πŸŽ₯ and Twitter. I bet you all saw the big announcements made during the keynote and the Platform State of the Union talks πŸŽ‰. But did you know about all those other new APIs that were added more silently? πŸ•΅

Pattern Matching, Part 4: if case, guard case, for case

Now that we’ve revisited the various syntaxes for pattern matching in part 1, part 2 and part 3, let’s finish this blog post series with some advanced syntax using if case let, for case where and all!

Pattern Matching, Part 3: Custom pattern matching & syntactic sugar

In parts 1 and 2 of this article series, we saw some usages of switch on a lot of things, including tuples, Range, String, Character and even type. But what if we can use pattern matching even with our own custom types?

Pattern Matching, Part 2: tuples, ranges & types

In the previous article, we saw the basics of pattern matching using switch on enums. But what about using switch with anything other than enum types?

Pattern Matching, Part 1: switch, enums & where clauses

From a simple switch to complex expressions, pattern matching in Swift can be quite powerful. Today we’re going to start exploring it by seing some cool usages of switch, before going further in later articles with even more advanced pattern matching techniques.

Being Lazy

Today we’ll see how we can be more efficient ⚑️ by… being laπŸ’€y 😴.
In particular, we’ll talk about lazy var and LazySequence. And cats 😸.

Asynchronous error handling

In a previous article, I talked about error handling in Swift using throw. But what happens when you deal with asynchronous workflows, where throw can’t really fit?

Using Generics to improve TableView cells

Happy New Year everybody πŸŽ‡πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ†! My first post of 2016 will be a useful trick I want to share, which will demonstrate the power of Swift’s generics and how they can be really handy when dealing with UITableViewCells and UICollectionViewCells.

Let it throw, Let it throw!

Today’s article will be about handling errors in Swift.
Because let’s be honest, that makes a fun post title for the season β„οΈβ˜ƒοΈ.

The OpenSource Experience

As you all know, Swift just went OpenSource earlier this week. That’s huge news for the community, and there have been plenty of posts about that already explaining what a game changer that is.
And now for something completely differentβ„’, today I’ll take this opportunity to talk about my own experience with OpenSource and how contributing to OSS can be very enlighting for everybody.
