As programming languages and SDKs continue to evolve, it's important to understand the reasons behind any technology we use. Most of developers tend to make technical decisions based on community recommendations but very few are actually questioning further.

Agenda for this session: 

  • Introduction: Processes & Threads

  • Coroutines Fundamentals

  • Performance Comparison

  • When to use Coroutines?

When & Where: 26th of October, 6.30 pm, Aleea Tibles 26, 6th District, Bucharest

iOS Meetup

iOS Architecture MVVM with Combine

Combine was introduced as a new framework by Apple in 2019. The framework provides a declarative Swift API for processing values over time and can be seen as a 1st party alternative to popular frameworks like RxSwift and ReactiveSwift.

If you’ve been trying out SwiftUI, you’ve likely been using Combine quite a lot already. Types like ObservableObject and Property Wrappers like @Published, all use Combine under the hood. It’s a powerful framework to dynamically respond to value changes over time.

Agenda for this session: 

  • Combine and MVVM

  • Practical coding on a banking application

  • MVVM, Combine, UIKit, Resolver, Dependency Injection, Unit testing

By adopting Combine, you’ll make your code easier to read and maintain, by centralizing your event-processing code and eliminating troublesome techniques like nested closures and convention-based callbacks.

Let’s explore it together!
