Error handling is a very important topic and I’ve written already a blog post about that topic. You can also check out my talk about that topic on the Swift Summit in San Francisco. In this post
The so-called Nil Coalescing Operator is an interesting operator, that you can use for working with optionals.
C-style for-loops will be removed in Swift 3. This may seem a little bit strange at first sight. But Swift has some features that allow better loop structures.
Let’s start by looking
Recently there were some interesting reports and articles about the state of Swift. In this post we will discuss them and put them in perspective.
The Swift and Objective-C interoperability is very good so that it is very easy to use both Swift and Objective-C in one project.
In Swift you can easily create public properties with private setters. It makes your code much safer and shorter.
On December 3, 2015, the Swift language was released as open source. It also involves a roadmap for Swift 3, which will be released in fall 2016.
If you are using a lot of nested indentations, your code becomes rapidly unclear – the pyramid of doom. You can avoid this by using the keyword guard.
With the keywords weak and unowned you can avoid so-called reference cycles. In this post we will discuss the differences between them.
The future belongs to Swift, but does this mean that you should migrate Objective-C code to Swift?
With the functions map and flatMap you can easily transform an array into a new one.
Although ARC does most of the memory handling work for you, your app can still suffer from so-called retain cycles. So it is very important to discover them.
